Jackee Holder lets you into her thirteen recommended journal/writing books to choose from to gift someone along with a blank journal or notebook this christmas.
So you're swivelling in front of your full length mirror. Last year's Christmas dress is a little snug, but probably still ok. And suddenly the self-consciousness gremlins sweep in...Here are 3 ways to keep it real.
It happens every year. Well it used to.
The lead up to the end of the year can be stressful with work to wrap up and lots of Christmas festivities to organise. How do you get through it with the least amount of stress and with energy still left to actually enjoy the holidays?
Some people call it retail therapy, some people call it the magpie instinct and they both sound like something I can relate to . But, is it true that the more you let go of the material stuff, the more room you have in your life for things like love and happiness? I don't know the answer to that one, but I can tell you about something that has made me feel good!
Happiness is very subjective and hard to define. What makes one person happy does not make everyone happy ( I am positively unhappy if someone suggests we take a ride on a roller coaster but suggest an evening of Elvis music....I'm ecstatic) . You probably know what makes you happy, be it Elvis or a roller coaster ride, or an evening with a good friend. The chances are money has very little to do with the happy moments in your life.
