Here are my pages for December 12 - 21, 2012:
December 12 - What was something you planned to do in 2012 but didn't?
What was it, and why did you not accomplish it?
I wrote about how I had big plans to lead a healthier life in 2012 and did not make much headway.
December 13 - What was your biggest indulgence in 2012?
This can be anything - something materialistic, emotional, etc - what was something you truly let yourself indulge in?
Wrote about some purchases I made this year that I love and were a bit of a splurge.
December 14 - What was the best meal you enjoyed in 2012?
Who cooked it? What was it? Why did you love it so much? Where were you?
This one was easy - Thanksgiving dinner with friends.
December 15 - What was your favourite photo taken OF you and/or the photo you loved best that you took in 2012?
Print out the photo(s) if you can, describe where you were, what was going on when it was shot. Why do you love it? If you do not have the photos printed, you can still journal, just leave space to add the photo(s) once you get them).
(My first photo after my braces came off - I am in the bathroom at my dentists office!)
December 16 - What was your most memorable moment with family in 2012?
Was it a trip together? To visit distant relations? Guests in your home? A gathering for a special event? Just a great family night at home? Who was involved, and what were you doing? Why was it so memorable?
Taking my parents to Terrain this past fall.
December 17 - What was the bravest thing you did in 2012?
It can be something big or small, did you survive heartbreak? discover a hard truth? Learned to let go?
This was a private journal entry that I added into an envelope and sealed.
December 18 - Did you visit any place that holds special meaning to you in 2012?
If so, where was it, when did you go and why is it special to you? If not, were you avoiding somewhere? Why?
Is there some place you visited for the first time that now holds meaning for you that you hope to revisit in the future? Keep in mind it can be a place, city, country, restaurant, part - anything - even a memory.
I have been wanting to get to Longwood Gardens for years, and we finally went - I put the map from our visit in the journal.
December 19 - What was your most surprising revelation in 2012?
Big, small - it does not matter - just something you realized and surprised yourself with.
I wrote about how it was pointed out to me that maybe being too sensitive is not a negative trait like I always thought, but that it helps me be more empathetic with others, which is a big part of who I am.
December 20 - What did you change your mind about in 2012?
Did you have a change of heart about anything? What was it, and why?
Swiss Cheese! I love it now and before this year never liked it!
December 21 - Do you remember any of your goals and resolutions from 2012?
What were they? Did you accomplish them? If not, why not?
I talked about starting the year off knowing I would be the Art Director for Souvenir Magazine, and my goals surrounding that.
