Words

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Are you a collector of words? Do you read books and highlight phrases? If so, you are not alone. Some of the best prompts have come from those phrases.

I started collecting phrases back in high school. The one notebook I started with became several more until they filled up an entire shelf! The only problem with my collection is that some of my entries .did not mention the book title.

When I started again .earlier this year I made sure to note the origin of the phrase. I want to share some of these ” gems” with you today. Some of them are mine and these will be marked with a *.

Wednesday words to live by

“A lot of walking away will do your life good.

     Walk away from arguments that lead you to anger and nowhere. Walk away from people who deliberately put you down. Walk away from the practice of pleasing people who choose to never see your worth. Walk away from any thought that undermines your peace of mind. Walk away from judgemental people, they do not know the struggle you are facing and what you have been through. Walk away from your mistakes and fears, they do not determine your fate. The more you walk away from things that poison your soul, the healthier your life will be.”

Dodinsky

Constructing the Quote Journal

Dear Fellow Journaler,

Putting a quote journal is fairly simple – except for the collection of the quotes themselves! This could become a life-long addiction! (in a good way). My tips are:

  1.  Buy one with a sturdy cover, as you will be opening and closing it often. If  you decide to make your own and have been following this blog regularly, then you already know that you need to include watercolor paper and lots of lined paper as well.
  2. Don’t just write the quotes, draw them too.jennifer-frith-sketchbook-art-journal-pages
  3. List the author and remember it’s okay to write “unknown”.
  4. If you have a friend who has a favorite author, why not make a quote journal for them. (This is a useful idea!)

If you have a preference for particular themes, divide the pages up or better still, use pre-drilled 3- hole punched paper for the book.

If you already have a quote journal, please feel free to comment!

‘Til next time,

~~Sallie~~
