January Journal Challenge

After having a stressful year, I decided 2017 was going to be better. Right off the bat I was no longer going to allow negativity in my life. I am constantly striving to do better and I know I need to work much, much harder than I have been. The New Year for many is a chance to start over, change habits and accomplish goals. Although I don’t write resolutions for myself (seems to do more harm than good) I did make some small goals to see throughout the year. In January, I decided that I would write in my journal at least once a day, every day of the month. I also wanted to get my artistic creativity flowing, so along with my written entries, I drew a self-portrait for each day as well. Some days were not my best, either I didn’t feel good enough to try harder or didn’t have time, but I am so proud of myself nonetheless! After all, it’s only been one month into the year! Eleven more to go.
