After a few days of think whether I will still get a journal/planner for 2015, I finally have “yes” as an answer. Today, I have officially started collecting stamps so I can get The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s “2015 Giving Journal”.
This is my second year to collect stamps for a journal/planner. And just to share I always fail in keeping up with my journal for the year. But with all honesty, I want this planner not because it’s a trend, but because there’s a lot of heart in this journal. With all honesty, I got the 2014 journal (the same reason that I am trying to get the 2015 journal), not because to join the trend, but because I want to find inspiration, and for me to be able to at least give inspiration to others as well and I think the journal is living up to its purpose.
Today, I started with my first stamp. I suddenly thought of my ongoing “A Dozen of Weeks” series here in my blog, where I started counting down 12 weeks before the year ends and planning the things to do for Christmas and New Year (I am on the third week now). And to be able to get the 2015 Giving Journal, we have to collect 12 stamps. I think the number is not that bad and I think I can get my journal sooner than I think. :)
Anyway, some thoughts came to my mind earlier, and I want to share my caption to the picture above when I shared it on Instagram and Facebook.
Back at one. Time to try again. Time for a new start. Time to plan. Time to take the first step to achieve what we want. What are your “back at one” thoughts for today?
There are some inspiring stories lately from people who I know. And instead of feeling insecure or envy, I feel inspired to strive more in the things that I do. (Thank You Lord for letting me feel positive and to look more on the positive side).
So that’s how the first stamp inspired me for today.
