January Prompt – One Little Word

January 28, 2016



In my post-event haze, I took Tuesday off. It wasn’t enough time to recover at all, but it gave me the afternoon to work through the January prompt for Ali’s One Little Word class.

Joy is your power source ~ Danielle Laporte

JOY: (noun) a feeling of great happiness.

Not much to talk about here design-wise. I’m using a baseball card page protector for the pockets and an 8.5×11 protector for the long-form page. The paper is from Heidi Swapp’s Hello Today. I pulled together photos of my favorite day of rock climbing in 2015, a photo of me in Acadia, a beach shot from our camping trip earlier this month (with a quote on top), and a pre-event selfie I took last week as 350 people filed into the venue.

I found the most inspiration for these pages in quotes from Brene Brown and Danielle Laporte.

My reason why: After 2 miscarriages joy feels like the flip side of grief…one makes the other so vivid, and vice-versa. (I want to) not shut down, but open up. I shared more in my one little word 2016 post.

Also, I’m writing a weekly Joy List. So far, joy and I are getting along just fine.

Numb the dark and you numb the light ~Brene Brown
