Let's Live With Intention


I've searched the shelves in vain at TJMaxx on two separate occasions for a 2011 edition of the Brush Dance date book which I have been using for the past three years.

I could order one online but I've been spoiled in the past by purchasing them for half price at TJMaxx. 







I found this Live With Intention journal at TJMaxx for $4.99 and I'm going to make it work for me.  I'll use it in the same way I used my previous date books.


I'll share Renee Locks' powerful words and artwork here on my blog to introduce each month throughout 2011.




The best way to make your dreams come true is to WAKE UP!  I'd like to add the words "and get out of bed."  Once again, I'm going to make a New Year's resolution to bounce out of bed the minute I wake up.  I have the bad habit of staying under the covers long after I've awakened.



I hope you'll enjoy Renee Locks' creativity as much as I do.  Of course, I've peeked ahead and have been extremely impressed by her sumi brush painting and the phrases she's put down in her unique style of calligraphy.




I mainly use a date book to record my workouts at North Pointe and to welcome the months here.  I can continue to do that in this journal; where there's a will there's a way, right?

Oh, dear. Lying in bed under warm covers while your facial nerves are screaming, "But Baby, it's cold out there!" is one of the finer sensations in life.

I like the 'Wake up' message Shaddy!
Some caffeine sometimes helps no?

~Merry Christmas!!

"Wake Up"??? I don't want to wake up, life is so much nicer in the dream state. Merry Christmas my friend.

GULLY: I know! If I can keep my resolution, I'll be surprised.

LENORE: Oh yes! Caffeine is a must!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AS WELL!!

WALK: I hear you loud and clear, although, I love the idea that to make our dreams come true, we have to escape from our comfort zones and LIVE.

Get out of bed the second you wake up? Oh dear, that sounds ambitious, but I'll give it a shot too. It's harder in the winter when it's cold don't you think?

This datebook is gorgeous Shaddy! I just love it. You find all the cool things...I will be using a notebook for a datebook, lol. I can't find one I like! I'm looking forward to seeing yours this year though!

SARIE: I'm sorry I missed this comment of yours when you first posted it. I hate to admit it but I'm doubtful I'll keep that resolution. I've been resolving to get up earlier countless times and it hasn't worked. I haven't completely give up hope but time will tell, won't it!!

Maybe knowing you're trying too will motivate me.

You see, I often don't have enough hours in each day to do all I want to do. Getting up earlier would help.

Good luck to you!
