It's a sacred time for me - the journal swap day. It's the time when one finished, and another begins.
Mike Posner's song "Move On," said it best, I think:
"Beginnings always hide themselves in ends."
Positive shifts in any part of your confidence come as a beginning from an end. The value in the change - the joy or pain in it - rests in perspective you create around it.
I like to attach positivity to an end is with a new journal.
The one I am retiring today has about 40 empty sheets left. I never let that bother me. When that book's season is done, I'm done.

In my past lives, I sacrificed fun for work - it’s still a battle sometimes, if I'm honest with myself, as a self-proclaimed “Type-A in Recovery” so I thought it'd be fun to spark some fun with what I do and to invite you guys to come along with me in November with an Instagram #photochallenge!
The theme is #Glowvember and is a chance to discover (or rediscover) and share the keys to style, confidence, and joy because when they all come together, you GLOW!
I’ll be posting each day on my Feed and/or IG Stories.
JOIN ME! And better yet, tag a friend on this IG post and we’ll all have some fun together! Don't overthink it (I'm resetting that too this month). It's easy. Just say 'yes'! Can’t wait to play!
