I’ve been dealing with health issues for a while now. A lot of my goals have had to temporarily be put on hold.
I wanted a project I could work on at my own pace, but something I was genuinely excited about. One day while looking through my old notebooks, I came across this doodle. There was something about it that I liked, so I drew it up on my iPad and started to play around with it. Then, I imagined how it would look on a notebook. A notebook that would inspire me to write and not hold back.
I wrote a poem describing how I hope others would also view this notebook as a symbol for inspiration and hope. Several months of proofs and strained eyes later, my notebook is available on Amazon here. It costs $11.99. (free shipping with Prime)
For me, this notebook isn’t just a notebook. It is proof to my anxious brain that even when I am reeling in my negative thoughts, I have the ability to push through them and prove them wrong. This notebook is a step in the right direction and I am proud to share it with you. It’s important to celebrate the wins, no matter how small they might seem/feel.
I hope you check it out, share it with your creative friends. Maybe it will inspire them to write that book they always talked about but never found the time to write. Inside, the notebook is lined and even has a table of contents for you to fill out, which allows you to easily find past writings and their page numbers.
To more dreams coming true and hurdles being destroyed,
Arianna (insert hug emoji here)

I don’t know if Your father told you but your grandfather also enjoyed creating poems…me on the other hand, I can relate to a cluttered mind, and negative thoughts, I have both and continue to work on these issues…lookup “Eckhart Tolle” title “ A New Earth” it was the first book I read authored by him…I think you might like it!

I have cards that grandpa wrote to me, he often included a poem. I’ll look it up! I like the t.v. show Ted Lasso.
