Tuesday 3 September 2019


In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.

Because of the way I have made my journal it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them.

However I didn't like that page so I decided that would become the September calendar page and I turned over to this instead.

I had decided to use the word reflect for R.  September is often seen as a new start especially for those connected with the education system.  And whilst I haven't been a teacher now for 27 years, I still find September a starting point.   It can be a time to reflect on how the year has gone so far.  A time to look at what I committed to this year and whether I should still be committed to those things.

At the beginning of July I reviewed the first half of 2019.  I feel now is the time to look forward - to decide how to make the best of 2019 and maybe even think about 2020.  Or is it too soon?

I decided to use a photo of trees reflected in the canal and sticking to the monochrome nature of the journal pages, used one of my photos from my Master Practitioner project.  And where else is better to reflect on things than by still waters.

And the pages together

Thanks for joining me today.

Join Our Inspirational Facebook Group: Living Your Word of the Year
Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019.  Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post.  We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.
