A New Year and a New Resolve

2011 is here!! I know it's been said so often and yet it's too true; 2010 just flew by.  How can we make the new year memorable if it too is going to fly by?  Sadly, I don't have the answer you might want to hear, but I do want to do more this year for me to feel better, look better and be heathier overall.  I try to do this every year and somehow I let other things take priority and in no time at all, another year has gone by and not much has changed. I might have even backslid a bit (ok alot).  But all is not lost if we keep trying. Gardeners take out plants that die or have been placed in too much sun, scrapbookers put an embellishment over a mistake and if the book you're reading is bad, you pick a different one. So... if what we've tried in the past hasn't worked, we need to plant something else, pick a different book, slap a sticker on it or try a new lifestyle!! What's more, we need to tell people we're doing it! "Ahhhhh" you say. It's been proven that accountability is what makes folks successful in their undertakings. So why can't we accomplish accountability (i.e. proven route to success) by letting it be known that we're doing something new? Maybe we won't want to fail if we have to admit it to someone else.

I'm taking another class from Big Picture Classes called "Wellness Journey."  Part of the class is to make a journal of our activities, so I want to share mine with you.

I would love to be accountable to you and share my journey with this journal. How perfect for a scrapbooker to be able to go on a Wellness Journey and make improvements to my body, mind and spirit and have this fun journal to share.

The papers I'm using are Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology which I received as a gift from a dear friend. Thank you so much, buddy!! and thanks to you who are checking in today. Let me know if you need an accountability partner, I'm here for you ;D

  1. Very pretty journal book!!! Okay, I need an accountability partner because I am determined to get some weight off, slow but sure and also to be around people and things that bring me joy and lightness in spirit. So if I start to get weighed down in any area and you see it just give me a little kick in the pants or hug!!!! xo Mel

    What is HNY?
