Happy New Year!

Dear Readers of Cogitations & Meditations:

Wish you all a very happy new year. May this year bring you joy, laughter, and contentment.

Thank you for reading my posts here. Looking forward to a year of writing and reviewing here and at All About Romance.

I can be found on email keira at keirasoleore dot com or on Twitter @KeiraSoleore.

As my Twitter bio states: I'm a student of medieval manuscripts, a reviewer, a book editor, an aspiring historical writer, a book blogger, an avid reader, a choral singer, a proud coffee drinker, a dedicated sun saluter, a fannish beach-lay-abouter, and an all around good egg." I will continue to be so in 2017 as well.

Warm regards,

Best wishes to you and yours, Keira; may every day bring a smile and a memory.

Thank you, dear AL. I maintain a daily gratitude journal to record all the good memories and all the smiles so I can be sure to look through the posts on the days when things are a bit tough.

Oh my goodness, what a brilliant idea! I wonder if I could do this, being a 'glass mostly empty' kind of person, rather than a 'glass half full' type. I mean, I know I *should*...

I tend to be a glass empty kind of a person myself, hence the gratitude journal. I need reminding that something good happens every day. On occasion, a day when nothing bad has happened is deemed a good day as well. A routine day is a good day, too.

Over the years, I have found that I'm less likely to keep a journal if I have to handwrite it. (Irony, given that I faithfully handwrite Morning Pages every day.) So I maintain a private journal on LiveJournal and write down a sentence or a paragraph or more in it every day.

These days I write it in the mornings (so it's about the day before). Other times, I have written it before going to bed or any time in between. I find that writing it around the same time every day means that I'm less likely to abandon it.
