Forward Progress

The Forward Progress prompt is up!

This month we worked on taking stock in our lives. When I thought of my life and what that meant to me, I just started writing...kind of like free writing. Whatever came into my head went straight to the journaling, even if it didn't make sense ;) Then I added fonts and different sizes and printed it directly on the cardstock.

I hope you guys follow along FP... journaling and working on projects about your future can be really therapuetic! I can't say enough about it.
