WPC – It’s Not This Time of Year Without…


A notebook?  I know strange choice for the Weekly Photo Challenge. 
 We are really not into the holiday stuff, no tree, no shopping, no presents.  It’s not for me.  However, I do enjoy spending time with friends & family, that is the part I would keep about the holidays and discard the rest.  

This time of year is my reflective time. Always has been. I love to think back over the year and look ahead to the new year.

At the beginning of 2016 I decided to start a notebook of memories, thoughts, goals, and the fun things we have done.  At the end of each month I dedicated a page to a short “recap” of the month.  At the end of December, I plan to write up one big recap of the year.  It is so easy to forget all of the things that have happened over the course of a year and I look forward to using my notebook to reflect on 2016.  

So, “It’s not this time of year without my notebook & reflection of the past & coming year.  

May you have gratitude for 2016 & enjoy the holiday season.

    Good for you. I’ve tried journaling but always abandon it fairly quickly. An interesting take on the challenge!

      Thanks Tina. After enjoying it this year I plan to continue in 2017.

    My family is similar. We no longer exchange gifts or make a big production spending lots of money on Christmas. We do dinner, a Moravian service, maybe the Nutcracker or symphony and decorate a little. But it is mostly a time with family.
