Today I finished the last couple of pages of my current journal, and it felt good, but also a little sad, because I had spent so much time in that journal writing. Now I will move onto another one, but I wanted too pause and pay homage to my journal, always a faithful companion to me. Now chunky and stuffed full of good memories and moments never to ever forget.
I feel like I have gone on a really long and often hard journey of my life and my journal reflects it all in black and white, as well as all other colour ink I could possibly write with. The photos mean so very much to me, as well as the words that go along with them. They represent my life at this very moment in time, and the faces and people in these photos will never grow old, but stay frozen in time.
This morning when I finished the last page, I flipped through taking my time, and making sure no pages were missed, and reading bits here and there. I felt rather sad that there were no more pages to fill and no more entries to write within my trusty journal, my sidekick through these past couple of months. I was all for finishing and yet today I felt total anti climax, that it was over and there was no going back for me.
Now I will go onto a new journal, but I will leave this blog post with a few photos of my beloved journal.
Ciao for now Kitty-Kat xox

Your journal is beautiful! I’ve kept them my entire life. I use ‘The Artist’s Way’ Morning Pages Journals and write every day for years now. Only in the past few years have I been using colored markers and my watercolors, etc. and found that incorporating them made me feel so good! I truly love my journals and I know what you mean about closing one and starting a new one…but think of all the fun and beautiful things ahead that you can explore and write about! Happy journaling my dear friend and have a beautiful first day of Fall!

Thank you so much for your lovely comment and hope your journal goes well. I have read “The Artist ‘s Way” and also do morning pages as well. You must read “Creative Journal Writing” by Stephanie Dowrick it is another gorgeous book on journaling. Enjoy Fall my friend, here in Perth Western Australia is Springtime 😁😁😁
I love, love, love her!! I have a collection of books on the subject that I will have to share with you some time! I love that you’re in Australia…I have a few customers there. I have always wanted to visit. Maybe someday! I hope you have a lovely Spring and thank you for the well wishes and the likes on my posts! Let’s stay in touch! 😉
