A Layout to Share

This month's prompt was about taking stock of ourselves. Looking at where we are right now with regard to who we are, our goals or where we want to be. Kim created this wonderful layout that expresses how she sees herself. I love that she intentionally used a blurry photo to place emphasis on the fact that the lines that define us are often unclear.

Her journaling reads: "Here I am. I am not perfect. I can be moody, impatient and stubborn. I'm also loving, creative and loyal. I am real, I am me. And that's enough. Right now I am stopping and taking a moment for this...and to just breath."

Thank you Kim for participating and taking the time to take a closer look at yourself.

I like to hang out over at CMK and I am so glad I do b/c the inspiration over there just drips from the gallery.

The other day I spotted this layout by Joli when she got picked for LOTD. It's about change and accountability so I asked her if we could post it here b/c, well, this is what we are about...right?!

Thanks for letting us be a part of your journey, Joli! I am right there with you, this is something that i battle everyday and have come to the realization that it will be part of my life forever. I found that having a partner to help me get motivated has helped. Mmy best friend stacy has lost 34 lbs over the past year and when i am feeling "bleh" i call her, she yells at me to go to the gym and i feel better for it.

Thanks again, Joli!

If you have a layout about a journey you are on, let us know! we want to post it here and follow you on that journey. we are all here for each other, lord knows i need it ;)

Prompt 9

taking Stock...Assessing my personal well being. How can we expect to have forward progress if we are not looking after our state of well being. peace within ourselves..

I have goals...dreams...aspirations...but how do I expect to reach those if i don't have "stock" in myself.

These means evaluating your present position. Are you happy? Probably. Could you say you are even if aren't? Are we honest with our present self?

If you could put a monetary number on how much one share of stock in yourself would cost, what would it be?

Are you worth it?

Okay! I got Lisa's Loaded and hopefully I can get mine loaded soon.

Here is Lisa's layout:

Exciting News!

Hi! It's me, Lisa. Just stopping in to let you know we have some exciting things coming your way. Be sure to come back on the 15th for our next prompt and we will be having some announcements to make later in the month. I promise you are in for a treat!

I also wanted to share one more layout that was submitted for our June prompt about realizing our goals. This layout was submitted by Jocelyn.

Her journaling reads:

"Taking time to nurture our marriage! Spending time doing the things that makes us night, conversation, laughing...enjoying one another's company. It's time for us. It's time to nurture."

Thanks to everyone who played along. Can't wait to see what everyone does with our next prompt.

See you Wednesday!
