Sitting here being 40, I realize I'm not old. I am older and a bit wiser, but not old. People say "40 is the new 30", it's not it's 40. I am happy to be 40. I am happy that I have been given the gift of being on this earth for all these years. I am happy that I have survived with plenty of good memories. I am happy that the past is in the past, that I am no longer that same girl, and that in turning 40 I have realized just how much life I have left.
Creatively I've been stuck in a rut. I've spent a great deal of time lately surfing the internet searching for something new. Honestly, I have no idea what I am looking for, the wheel hasn't been reinvented yet. I spend time on Pintrest creating boards full of inspiration. But somehow I am still blocked.
In all my stumbling around looking for some kind of creative outlet I found the 30 Day Journal Project by Lisa Sonora. This has lit a fire under my butt. I spent my birthday weekend creating a journal for this challenge, which I will share with you below. I love both written and visual journaling, and this a perfect way to combine them.
