We sometimes spend so much time looking for things to journal about that we often forget to journal our daily lives. Even the most seemingly boring day has elements worth remembering.
I had such a day, today. I spent most of the morning sitting and waiting quietly while family members had various procedures performed. It gave me time for quiet contemplation and observation. I noted the art deco elements in the decor of one office, and even snagged a couple napkins unused by their recipient. I admired the brightly colored, upholstered booth seats in the restaurant where I had lunch with hubby, and committed (somewhat poorly) elements of the design to memory. I even got a small memento there by way of survey ticket.
I painted the background of my pages with elements that I remembered from my day. I even glued a strip of one of my autumn napkins to the page. I'll add more elements and write about the day's activities later.
No matter how boring or mundane of a day you think you're having, there are always a few snippets of your life just waiting to be incorporated into your journal pages. Take a fresh look at your daily activities and see the wonderful things that you're looking past as you "Celebrate, LOVE, and Create!"
