Thanks so much for the inspiration!
Second Journaling Challenge of MOC where I have had EXACTLY 150 words!
I case you can't read it...I've included the journaling in the description in the gallery.
So, I started free writing for this challenge, and the next thing I know I had 745 words on a topic I hadn't ever planned on scrapbooking ... but I think it's a page my stepdaughter and nieces will need to read. Thank you for the challenge, @Dalis!
Well, I'll say there is nothing super-profound here but that's just a-ok!

Looking ahead to 56 and beyond…is that number even possible? I still feel like I’m in my 20’s most days!! How did we get here?! Keep up the yoga and I’m hoping by now you’ve gotten a really regular exercise routine in because the dog walking doesn’t really count. The yoga and the movement will be key I bet going forward… because they are key now at 55! So yeah, move your body
Engage your mind. I am sure that I will still be sewing and documenting our memories and helping other people to document theirs. The design challenges and technical work are so good for keeping the old brain ticking
I am excited to learn more about quilting and different techniques and the same with knitting. It’s amazing to have passions that can keep us engaged on so many different levels.
Keep up with your friends, it’s so easy even now for us to be busy busy busy and forget to pick up the phone and meet for lunch or the movies or a drink. It’s interesting to think how many of my various friend groups you’ll still be hanging out with now that the girls are (presumably) out of the house, at college or off on their own.
And, as always nuture nurture nurture, hug your sweetie tight and never let him go. Hopefully by now he has been able to leave his job, the kids are through college and you both can go back to just enjoying each other and having fun together after years of houses and kids and pets. Because always, Love Wins.
This wasn't super easy for me but I got it! Thanks for the challenge! Word count is 234.
Here's mine. I almost always do two page LOs because there's never enough room for me to tell the story on one. This is a perfect challenge for me.
Word Count is 202
Stop fighting …
Is it worth it? Stop to think if what you are angry about is worth your anger or if it can be easily dismissed. Don’t give in to it. Walk away from it. Let others have their moments of tantrums or fits of rage or nastiness and know that it’s because they have a problem, not because of you. Love those that matter to you in their random moments even when you are angry. It hurts you and your own happiness to be angry and fight back. It takes away from your good moments in your own life. You can’t fix it. You can’t control them. It is what it is and if you don’t take time to choose the joy in your own life, then you will constantly battle the anger, unhappiness and depression. It’s easier said than done but know that if you can be the one to calm down and let time separate those feelings of anger, hurt and betrayal from those of love, peace, calmness and happiness… then maybe that will help the person on the other end as well. If all else fails, pray for them to find their own peace, joy and happiness.
Fun journaling experience.

Dalis, my dear...I left your challenge for the last day, cause I knew it would make me cry...not that my journaling says a lot of private stuff, but just thinking about everything that is going on right now, I'm turning 40 in a few days, and I've been thinking a lot about life and my decisions, and...well....I'm starting to feel old and I should be wise, but I don't think I really am...lol!! anyway, here's my page:
