This is very seriously new favorite project. I am so excited to invite you to reflect along with me throughout the month of January…. And I’m already looking forward to reviewing my progress in a few months and doing it all again next January.
Throughout the month I will post different journaling prompts and topics to help you review the year behind and RESET for the year ahead.
I have been using the RESET digital kit designed by Alexandra Rae Design (with some input from me). It includes lovely word art, prompts and elements, as well as pre-made quick pages to get you started right away. This kit can be used any time, but throughout January, Allie and I will be leading the way through reflecting on the past year and resetting for the year ahead using this kit as a base.
There are some great word-art and quick page for this in the RESET kit, but as always, make it your own.
A reminder that this project is YOURS too. If you want to skip the quick pages altogether … If you want to double-up on the last-year-reflection. If you want to use only the kit or none of the kit.
My pages are meant to be an inspiration and a loose guideline — but I’d love to see your take too. Please leave a link in the comments if you are posting your January RESET project!
On to this week’s pages … on the prompt RIGHT NOW:
This week’s prompt is all about RIGHT NOW. How am I feeling, what am I doing, how am I spending my time. A good, thorough check-in…
Actually … I feel like this first new spread is still part of the REFLECTION prompt.
I have several of those blank Month / Focus cards, and will try to do the whole year, recording how often I am making the time to work on my books.
The blank spot on the right will be this photo (needs to be printed). This is my right now. It was literally taken just a few days ago. It represents where I am RIGHT NOW in my life — totally flexible schedule and independence to jaunt off to an Airbnb for a week to do nerdy history touristy things by myself.
I LOVE IT. I am so so happy that this is what my RIGHT NOW looks like. This photo and what it represents makes me so happy.
You’ll notice the background of my album looks different than last week — that’s because I’m actually working from an Airbnb this week rather than my usual home. I love that. I love that I can work from anywhere.
This next page begins the small ‘right now’ section. About what I want to cut out of my life. About the opportunities and structure I have to my life right now.
It’s so very 100% different than my Right Now was a year ago. And so worth documenting. I’m already excited to see how my Right Now will look different in January 2017.
The back side of that page is a quick jot-down of what today looks like. Literally today. Monday, January 11. I am still in my Airbnb in Richmond as I type this, planning on stopping by some plantations on my drive back home to Virginia Beach. What my work today looks like. What my brain today looks like.
(The 3×4 cards on the right are just place-holders at the moment. I haven’t decided what that next page will look like as of this posting)
‘Today is for’ and ‘Just for Me’ journaling cards are from the kit, as well as the ‘Just say No’, ‘Right now I’ and ‘Today is for…’ prompt strips. Other cards are from Studio Calico, Midnight core kit, Ali Edwards, Kelly Purkey and made by me (and Kellie Stamps).
You’ll notice this section is a lot smaller than the previous (and likely the section for the next prompt). This is for a few reasons, but really it’s more of a transition prompt than anything else. I don’t have anything more than this to say about my right now.
This is my right now. … and now I’m ready to move forward for the year!
What does your RIGHT NOW look like?
Next week will be about my big 2016 goals! I have been thinking about these for a few weeks, but waiting to actually document anything specifically. I am super excited about the next January RESET pieces.
