I’m over half way through the first year (I promise it’s the hardest year the rest is smooth sailing!) – and what are my thoughts?
To be honest, I would have done a few things differently. First, I wish I had printed and cut the questions and then adhered them to cards. I’m tired of writing cards. I also think it would have been cool to run the index cards through my printer – printing the question on the top, answering underneath and I could have just decorated the back without worry about fitting a question or what color the paper was.
However, if I had done any of these things I would have missed out on an opportunity to find out what awesome friends I have. I’ve been really sick this last two-week period so I was behind on cards, and last night my friends invited me over for a crop. All I took was this project to work on. My hopes were to get caught up and maybe write a few extra questions ahead. When I got there my friends offered to help and I passed out cards and month sheets and dug in. It was a really great moment to realize how awesome my friends are. If you’re feeling a little stuck, ask a friend to help. It’s fun and you can probably get away with paying them in cupcakes. I did.
Each month I ask you to share how you’re keeping your 5 Year Journal. This month I was given a ‘heads-up’ to a blog by Gail Wheatley. More specifically this post where she is implementing a 5 Year Journal into her Filofax love. I don’t know how many planners Gail has, but I know I’m jealous and love the ideas she’s sharing. Her blog is new, and it’s very exciting to see where she’s going.
