The Celebrating Soul

February | A Personal Journey Through 2019

This year, I’m taking you on a journey through my 2019 calendar to show you how simple it is to write one small thing about your life each day. This short exercise has helped me notice, savor, and celebrate my life.

What I love about my record for February 2019 is how much I wrote about nature. I don’t remember everything about that February, but I do remember it being dominated by life and it’s reflected on the calendar.

March would swoop in with pain and intensity, but isn’t it amazing that hard times don’t erase the beauty we’ve already experienced?

Here’s February 2019.

28th: QUITE the day, but mostly spent with Ben ❤ Heard a “ministry-kid” really loved + related to my book. HUGE!


Remembering life is a gift to behold and one we don’t often receive. Instead of letting all the complicated and mundane things stack up against us, we can offer ourselves beautiful clarity on something as plain as a calendar.

Thirty seconds a day with a pen and a calendar is a kind of magic and can make a world of difference.

Watch it happen.

Start Today.
