I am loving this 5-year journal of 365 questions. I’ve never been a consistent journal keeper. So many years have started with good intentions, but by March or April, I tend to crash and burn.

This year feels different. I’ve given myself to not have to catch up if I get behind, but to just turn to that day’s question and start over. I’ve not gotten behind yet, though. Maybe it’s because I’ve not allowed myself to read the questions ahead of time and find myself looking forward to the next day’s question.

Each new page is made a little more special because I’m using a bookmark I got at the U.S. Capitol when I was in Washington, DC last year. I love seeing Freedom with fireworks behind her each day as I open the book to see the question of the day.
