Foolishness, enthusiasm and a new journal page

Update: The journal page in this post is no longer available for download. For a selection of free, printable journal pages, please visit my Printable Journal Pages collection.

I love this quote in today's journal page:


It should be my personal motto.  Case in point, (there are so many cases in point . . . ) I have always stressed about leaving comments on blogs.  I spend a lot of time composing them, until I can't stand it any longer and hit the publish button.  So far this week, I have entered a six-word story contest while totally misinterpreting the contest theme word and written a goofy comment that I thought was light, but later realized looked ridiculous beside all the other, more thoughtful entries.  Thankfully, I used a whole bunch of exclamation marks!!! . . . which really lifted it to the realm of enthusiastic foolishness.  Ugh.

Moving on.

Today's lightning round is the round of firsts.  I hope it will bring back sweet memories.


The full page looks like this:


You'll find it in black and white here and with its colourful border here. 

Happy Wednesday friends and may all of your foolishness be conducted with the utmost enthusiasm!  Exclamation mark!

Edited to add:  If you'd like to add a splash of colour of your own, download the page with a colour-free border here.
