I love this time a year… A time of new beginnings and fresh starts. Of course we don’t always have to wait for the New Year to do this. Although, it seems for the most of us we always do… For me, it usually is an excuse to still continue to eat chocolate! 🙂
One of my FAVORITE things about the New Year is taking the time to start a journal! Many people wonder why they should keep a journal. Journaling allows me to really discover who I am. It allows my children and grandchildren to one day understand my trials and struggles and exactly how to get through them (when I give them all to them when I get older). It allows me the opportunity for personal growth and self discovery. So many times I have turned back to my journal for answers that I am seeking. Journaling offers us the ability to spill our guts and really reflect on the things that are bothering us. It really helps us improve our understanding and insight on situations that are occurring around us.
As a mom I want to have my kids discover these same benefits of journaling, but I always have felt like journals are a little above their head until now!
My Gratitude and Dream Journal
I love the My Gratitude and Dream journal because it is not like any other journal that I have written in. This colorful journal is sprinkled with quotes that are not only meaningful, but inspiring as well. It also allows plenty of room for you to write your thoughts, feelings, and ideas on what you are thankful for. What I love about this journal is the fact that I don’t feel the need that I have to write in it every day, but I certainly can!
Perfect for Kids and Teens
If you are trying to inspire your kids or teens to write in journals this is the perfect one for them to get started with! It allows them room to color, write, and truly express themselves on each page. The variety of colors and is truly inviting. It is never too early to introduce journaling and expressing gratitude to your kids, and this is the perfect book to do it!
If you are looking for a journal for your kids that offers more self-reflection and personal growth the My Happy Place journal is just what you are looking for.

These journals were created by a mom and a daughter who had a dream to make and create products that inspire, educate, and entertain the young and the young at heart and My Gratitude and Dream Journal and My Happy Place certainly does just that!
If you are a parent or grandparent wanting to teach your children the beauty of journaling these are the perfect journals to get them started!

You can find both journals on Amazon here and here.
