Change of tack

ETA: LOL I just noticed that I had the idiom "change of tack" wrong! I had it as "change of track" which also makes perfect sense but is wrong! I've obviously been living in Germany too long! I'm losing my English!!!


Some time ago I started making a travel journal for our planned Canada trip this year. I had loads of product and plenty of time to get creative but somehow, it just didn't come together. I made a cover, cut out the pages, planned a bit of what I wanted and then left it. Every time I thought about it, I just lacked the inspiration to do anything with it.

I should have read the signs!

The holiday (which would have begun yesterday) was cancelled at the last minute! Long story...

Yes, I am sad. Yes, I am even broken hearted. But you know what? Life is pretty hard for so many people at the moment (so many sad stories about money, jobs, illness etc) and I know that I should be grateful for what I have. It's time to really dig in and realise how much I have to be thankful for. I don't want this to turn into a sob story for me. I am not fishing for sympathy. I want this to be something connected to my ongoing quest to become a more positive person. (My glass is certainly not half-full yet!!!)

So, I changed tack, took my travel journal apart and re-purposed it to be a gratitude journal. I intend to complete this every day for the next two weeks (the time we would have been on holiday) and find something great about each and every day.

It helps!
