Every morning after I've had coffee and breakfast and have completed my first batch of social media posting, it's time for morning journaling. I have a tall table that sits in a bay window. There is nothing on the table, except some Russel Wright pottery, a table runner, my journals and a cat. Yes, Luxie joins me every morning. As soon as I slide into my seat, she hops up on the table, that is if she is not already up there waiting.
I have two journals. One is a bullet journal, which lists my to-dos and various other lists - like restaurants I want to eat at, challenges I'm participating in and whatever else I find the need to write down. The smaller journal is my 5 Minute Journal. It's not the actual 5 minute journal, but a blank journal that I use for the. I actually use an app for my phone for my 5 minute journaling, but I also like writing it down. I've kind of tweaked it to make it work for me.
The original 5 minute journal calls for, in the morning listing 3 things you are grateful for, 3 things you are going to do to make the great and an affirmation. Then in the evening, you list 3 things that made the day amazing and what might you have done to make it better. I've changed it up and only do one not three things for each prompt.
It's such a special time of the day and I feel truly blessed that I can take that time out of my day to focus on gratitude and how I'm going to approach my day. Luxie uses the time to make sure she starts her day out looking her best!
For my art photo this week, I used the Topaz Labs Impressionist plugin.
