Brew your best year!

5:39 pm

One of the things I look forward to new year's day is the haunt for the perfect journal to use. Luckily, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf was kind enough to give me an advance Christmas gift - my very own Giving Journal 2015.

"Brew Your Best Year is dedicated to inspiring and arming its community to become the best version of themselves. It is an outlet of artistic expression and a place to share stories that others can read, see, and experience. It seeks to create an inspired community that inspires and serves others, through the power of shared creative contributions." 

How does one "brew their best year?". It may sound so simple but the whole process of it is very complicated. Our lives aren't perfect, there are a lot of ups and downs that we have to take, because life isn't supposed to be easy. Instead of being cooped up when things won't go the way we want it to be, it's best to just think positive.

COFFEE BEAN & TEA LEAF's giving journal can help one to live an overflowing life. Each page inspires and motivates the users to look at life in a more positive way. It engages people to grow more physically, mentally, and spiritually. It empowers to be the best versions of themselves. Overall, the CBTL's giving journal is more than just a planner, it's also a companion.

What I love about this planner is the page on overflows. There's a list of ways to create overflows which I thought was very awesome. Not all planners have this kind of feature and it's great how The Giving Journal has it. 

Here's a glimpse of what the journal has to offer. 
The journal comes in 4 different colors: Brown, Green, Lavender (I CRY!), and Orange. Each has a different icon design which gives character to the cover page, which by the way, is made of a soft and leathery material. It's a bit thick but it's still compact. It has 2 ribbon bookmarks and an envelope inside, at the back cover. It is secured by a garter which I think is very useful.

"I choose to grow each day 
To be purposeful at work and play 
And throughout life’s highs and lows 

I choose a life that overflows.
I choose to take steps forward 
To make sure each day is fully explored 
And whether I meet with joys or sorrows 
I choose a life that overflows.

I know that no diligence is wasted 
That little by little goes far when added 
I know that goodness echoes 
So I choose a life that overflows.
Someday I’ll look back 
At my well-traveled track 
I’ll beam because my heart knows 
I chose a life that overflows."
