creating my own destiny....

HAPPY friends with FLAIR friday!

i LOVE journals and i created a new one a few weeks back that i wanted to share today...  
i am a firm believer that everyone has a daily CHOICE on how to create the life they have always dreamed.  that is what this journal is for me....i have used it to write out my dreams & goals, what i am grateful for each day,  and what inspires me...{plus lots of other boring stuff!} :)  i carry it with me where ever i go...
"Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal."
the sentiments are from the unity/melody ross collection:
brave girl boots {life is meant to be lived}
she did it anyway {today is the day & now is the time}
from the unity/marah johnson collection:
moxie {create & destiny}
crate paper - restoration collection
masking tape
the girls paperie chipboard letters {you can find them here}

be sure to head back to the unity blog
for a full list of today's FWF participants...
thanks for stopping by!
have a WONDERFUL weekend!
