The wise ones say, 'What you pay attention to grows.' I want to grow positivity in my life as well as gratitude. In this journal that you will create by hand for your partner, for 30 days, you will list 5 things from that day that you are grateful for or 5 positive things that happened to/for you during your day. (You can definitely list more if you like;) You may keep your entries on whatever you like as long as you put them all together in a way that makes sense... maybe kind of a 'pocket journal?' Like the pocket letters? (It is up to you, the creator.) No recent 1's or 3's and newbies with more than 20 swaps in something other than a Type 1. Thank you so much! Hugs! (BTW: Make this interesting for your partner with some little things along the way... a drawing or doodle you did during the day... a piece of origami you happened to fold... a cute image you saw and decided to keep for them... a sticker stuck somewhere... you get the idea... Not required everyday... but make it nice:)

What a great idea Margo! I can't wait to get started.

IKR?! (i'm not being all cocky about it being a great idea... i'm just excited too!!!!)

Very interesting swap. Never seen anything like this. I'm trying to imagine how this Journal would look like.. Can you give me an example? Too bad that USA only..

I love doing this every day for myself! I read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and it changed my life! Have fun, ladies!!! :)

Wouldn't many things end up being repetitive? I don't think I could come up with 5 unique things every day for a whole month. Is that ok?

TC 04/12/2015 #

You say "no newbies;" please define newbie? By this experienced swapper's definition, you're still a newbie yourself. :)

Just to clarify: It doesn't have to be in a traditional journal form, correct? Each sender gets to choose how everything gets put together?

Margo 04/13/2015 #

@TC Yep. I've gotten that comment a lot. I've already been told to reform my definition to a number and type of swaps required. I just hadn't thought it through. Thank you for the comment:)

Margo 04/13/2015 #

It doesn't have to be in traditional journal form. I'm building one now for another swap that will have pockets in something akin to a file folder but decorated... Like a pocket letter:)

Margo 04/13/2015 #

Examples of positive or things I'm grateful for today: 1. I got to take a really nice nap:) 2. My mail box was full of all sorts of amazing today (including my Ipsy bag!!!) 3. I feel inspired today! 4. A money issue I was having worked itself out! 5. My Blippo order arrived sooner than I thought it would! I hope that helps ;)

Really Great Idea - I agree - it is my format in our group swap!

Margo 04/15/2015 #

I wanted to apologize for not being polite and asking @Robinarie if I could run a duplicate swap outside the group. I wasn't aware of the process or offense that could be, and I apologize. I meant no harm and I love your swaps;) I hope all is well and you are in good spirits;)

Robinarie 04/16/2015 #

All is well and in good spirits ~ happy swapping!

Margo 04/17/2015 #

Thank you;)

Margo 04/22/2015 #
