Dawn shares why she publishes Refresh Journal each month:
"I enjoy refreshment; I love encouraging others to refresh themselves. With each issue of Refresh Journal, I like to take the opportunity to share refreshing tips for your work, your home, your kids, and yourself. My aim is to help give you a fresh perspective on topics that may be of interest to you in your every day life. Sometimes just a new view on your relationships, your work life, your environment, and in your mindset is all you need to get where you want to go.
I also desire to share the best of journal writing that I find on the web that I post for #JournalChat Links Edition for those who are looking for some new information, new techniques and a new perspective on their own journaling practice.
I also provide the information journal writers may be looking for on the monthy topic for #JournalChat Live, so they can be in the know and prepared if they plan to attend the live chat or if they plan to implement the information into their own journaling practice. I like to provide this valuable information at their fingertips so they can go back to it at any time at their convenience."
Dawn tells why she enjoys sharing some of the other features in Refresh Journal:
"I am a life-long artist. When I find something inspiring, I want to share my point of view on the artistic subject or topic to give other artists a new perspective on experiences that they can relate to. Whether it's a gallery of an artist featured or a quote concerning creativity or art in general, I like to provide new insight and new ways of thinking to set a wonderfully creative tone to their artistic world."
"Music is an essential dimension in our culture and in our individual lives. I find some music to be highly inspiring, thought provoking, and fun. I enjoy suggesting a song each month in connection with each Refresh Journal topic to add a bit of musical flair to your day. It must just get you humming or singing!"
Dawn talks about the Refresh Journal theme:
"When we address the many dimensions in life, assimilation of these ideas and mindsets can be more easily attained through the use of a theme. Thus I create a theme of sorts for each issue of Refresh Journal to give you something to take with you. Whether it's thought provoking, encouraging, insightful, mind-expanding or just plain fun, I love to tie each issue together with a thematic bow so it can be relevant, interesting, and implementable in your daily life, bringing you refreshment and a fresh perspective in every life dimension."
Dawn talks about the importance of gratitude with Refresh Journal:
"I always appreciate the kind support, affirmation, and appreciation many folks show towards me in the journal writing, writing, and artistic worlds in which I work. I see each issue as an opportunity to thank each individual for their support by sharing their kind words and enable others to connect with them. Thus, my Special Thanks feature is always full. Thank you, my friends and supporters!"
Dawn shares how readers and subscribers can benefit from Refresh Journal:
"I love reading something that encourages me, gives me a fresh perspective or a new insight, or that makes me laugh out loud. I love gleaning information that can enable me to learn and apply new techniques or approaches to my journal writing, my artistic pursuits, and my home and my family relationships. I also love being inspired by something visual and musical to take with me and apply to my own expression of life in whatever form I choose. That is what I hope Refresh Journal will do for you."
