2015 mini journals

Here are the 2 small albums I've chosen for some portable art journalling and mandala drawing in 2015.My word for the year ahead is ' PRACTICE' with the goal of making things that keep me healthy, emotionally well and 'happy' a daily, weekly or monthly practices. One of the big challenges for the year ahead is to bring the practice of meditation into my life.Ive tried before to do this, enjoyed it, felt the benefits but not managed to be consistent with it.... without pressure I wish to continue my mindfulness through yoga and running/walking but also bring it into my life through drawing mandalas I have 20 pages at 4 X 4 to create them and then a plan to create some coasters from them at the end of next year....soo a little creative goal tooo. Ive an openness to the  opportunities to meditate as I know they will present themselves without my having to struggle and make it very hard work.... as thinking of it as hard work creates an obstacle to my hardwiring soooo working with it in a different way.
I loved the inspiration that Journal 52 and The Documented Life Project provided and valued it soon much last year so I also have a small moleskin journal with 60 sides in concertina style pages to journal my weeks and months intentions, affirmations , reflections on achievements and savour my feelings of gratitude. I've also my other journals for larger spreads when I'm inspired to journal and art on a larger scale and delve into deeper level stuff as desired ...looking forward to enjoying the 'present' in 2015. Now the fun of prepping the covers and pages over the next few days.....more journal pages in progress using all my little reflections collected in my reasons to be grateful and positive in 2014 jar .....
