I also keep a journal. It is beautiful and pretty with fancy parchment paper!! It is my gratitude journal. I am not as faithful as I should be about writing everyday, but I need to make a better effort because overtime I write in it, I feel so blessed.
If all else fails, and you only have 5 minutes...watching YouTube videos of babies giggling is a sure way to put a smile on your face :)
This break, I hope everyone has a chance to rejuvenate and get ready for an enjoyable (not exhausting) 2015!
