got to pulling out some of my scrapbook albums. I have a lot, and most are in boxes, but I am working on a big project, and wanted to refer to some old pages. I only got out 5 albums, but it was getting in a time machine. I did a little laughing, and a little crying- my kids were like “mom… are you crying????”. Its crazy how those emotions come right back to the surface. Everytime! (I am so thankful for every second I have spent making these crazy books)…
anyway, ran across this page- I didn’t date it, which is the number one rule….ALWAYS date your work. Both eric and I –at the same time- said, “ this was such a fun day”. It was the day that we hiked ‘rim to rim’ in the Grand Canyon. It was so much fun. It was hard.

And then acknowledging all the good things that happen! And being thankful. So, in my journal I listed a few things that I WANT to believe in… I even put my list on a sticky note on the fridge. I am going to work on BOLDLY meeting a couple of my obstacles, and choosing to believe
Here is a great (quick) read, on this subject.. feeling inspired and energized.
