wellness (project 3)

a few weeks ago I checked in on molly irwin's wonderful blog and read the most timely post. what I found was someone who feels similar to me. someone willing to share, so honestly. like molly, I've been feeling a little out of step-tired, emotional, lacking confidence, just plain luke warm. I don't want to be luke warm any more. I have been blessed with so much. I want to be and feel happy! so I took molly's lead, her wellness journal idea and made one step toward wellness.
you'll recognize the color's the same as my truth journal, and you'll see more of these colors tomorrow when I share some card creations.
you'll also recognize the's the same as my recipe binder.
I started by making a divider page for each of the next six months- october through march. currently behind each tab, is simply lined paper and and one of molly's pdfs with "thinking, doing, feeling" sections. I'm not sure what will eventually be added or recorded in this journal, but I'm looking forward to recording how I take care of myself, how I can do that better, and how feeling better comes from honestly feeling.
I cut decorative paper and slid it into protective sleeves. I added emblishments and stickers marking the month along with the butterly clips as page tabs.

the pink envelopes may hold special clippings, verses, and encouragements that help keep me on the right track during the month.

if this idea could help you or a friend, i encourage you to visit molly's blog and download her pdfs and then take one step toward wellness.

This is a fabulous idea! I love the idea of nurturing yourself and making steps towards much better than a fitness plan or diet! And your binder is beautiful...maybe you should consider a business? You've got a real talent there girl.

your divider pages are sooo good! and I love the envelope idea - so much better than having to glue in your clippings. and you already know that I concur with lisa and leslie - you so need to teach classes on how to make these!
