I love the feel of a new journal. There is this excitement to dive right in and fill the clean, pristine pages as quickly as possible. Over time I have learned to slow down and begin each new journal on a positive note.
My very first page is all about "Being Grateful". I slow down and focus on how fortunate I am to be living In this time and place. You will notice that I don't completely fill in my Gratitude Wheel when I first start. As the days proceed I find so many things on a daily basis to add to the wheel. By daily returning to the wheel I start fresh each day on such a positive note.
