My goal this year is to set no firm goals. This year I want to live purely in the moment, and look for things that I may have been overlooking my entire life.
|For instance, how random shapes of rocks can make a sturdy wall.... and the arrival of spring flowers.|
Otherwise, I'm going to go with the flow.
To do that, I wanted to go back to actual writing on paper -- journaling. I don't have the time or the energy to write and paste in menus and tickets and pictures like I did for years, but I DID think it would be interesting to see what, if anything, could change in me in five years. I turn 45 this year, so when the journal is done, I'll be 50, and I think it would be a marvelous present to myself to have five years of "look at what happened!" to peruse.
Now I want to share this journaling challenge with you.
I'm giving away four Five Year Journals. These are awesome for those who have no time as all you have to do is a write a sentence or two over the course of five years. And these particular journals, "Q&A a Day" and "The Happiness Project", also have wonderful prompts and inspirational quotes.

I'm giving away four copies, one to four people. To be put in the running, just comment below and be SURE your name links to your blog, if have have one, and that your email is linked on that page. So many people lose out when they have their "About Me" page linked to Google+ or don't have their email filled out in their profile. I just have no way to track you down. So if you aren't sure, check your "About Me" page or anything similar and make sure people can reach you.
Not required, but it would be lovely if you would let others know about the giveaway. International IS included. It just might take a little while because holy smokes, but one of my contest winners from APRIL just NOW got her gift. Gracious sakes.
Here's to a wonderful new year!
