Keeping a journal can be anything you envision it to be. Yes, it is an outlet for purging emotions, however, it can be so much more. Let your creativity have some fun with the process. After all, it is a chronicle of your life and there are many wonderful things that happen along the way. It doesn’t only have to contain all of the doom and gloom of the not so pleasant thoughts and events in our lives.

Wouldn’t it be a fabulous world if everyone honoured Earth Day every day? It would certainly be in our global best interest if we did. Sadly, however, it seems even too much to ask to get people pumped up about it just once a year, let alone everyday…Seriously, what will it take to make Earth Day sexy?
