In my last journaling workshop, we focused on summer fun. When my boys were little, as soon as school was out we wrote everything we wanted to do that summer on a big poster board.
Some staples were strawberry picking in June, going on vacation, swimming, picnics, bike rides, concerts, movies to see, family to visit, how many ice cream places we would visit and rate, etc.
I made sure there was downtime, but it gave them structure and lots to look forward to. I haven’t done that in a long time. As adults we can get caught up in our lives and forget to enjoy life no matter what season we are in.
The Northeast summers are so short, I want to be outside as much as possible.
So here is my list for the summer:
By putting it in my journal, it becomes real and I remember to look up when Shakespeare is in Congress Park or that I still need to see Guardians of the Galaxy (although not in the theater at this point!) I have much to do still!
As you check off your summer fun activities journal about them so you remember the details and the joy.
Then do it all again in the fall with apple picking, Halloween, and hay rides!
Create and decorate your summer fun list today. Put it in your journal or on your fridge as a reminder. Enjoy!
