Do you ever feel like you've run out of things to blog about? I don't know about you but sometimes there is nothing going on in my life besides diapers and making peanut butter sandwiches. These are the times that I usually post about memories or stories from the past and it turns into therapy...which I desperately need sometimes. I have a solution for these times.....
I met a great gal in Las Vegas when I was at SITScation. Her name is Cynthia and she's so creative! She takes beautiful pictures and she loves to dance. Cynthia just came up with this fabulous list of 510 blog prompts that she calls Jump Starts and I'm so excited about it. Not only can these be used to give you blog post ideas but you can also use these for your private journal where you record your thoughts and feelings. I can't wait to get started. A copy of this list costs less than a Starbuck's Latte! Click HERE for more info.
Speaking of journaling.... A few days ago, I decided to start a family journal with a sketch book that I had in my bookshelf. Each day, I'm writing a few lines about what we did that day. I'm also going to use some of Cynthia's prompts and write about my family. I think this is going to be a great thing to look back on when the kids are older and it takes just a few minutes to do. In the back couple pages, I've taped some inspirational pictures that I've cut out of magazines for decorating the kids rooms. And I'm adding quotes to the bottom of the pages when I come across them....my favorite one this week is this:
Love your children as if you won't have them tomorrow, and train them as if they won't have you.
I hope you're having a blessed day!
