Hi folks! Thanks for your visit and interest. I’m delighted to make your virtual acquaintance. You’re probably here because you’re interested in journaling and want to know more about JD Dyola Journals ❤™. If, however, you’ve never even heard of JD Dyola Journals ❤™ please continue reading. You’ll also want to check out our Previews page for an idea of what we have to offer, and the FAQs page for even more info.

Let’s get better acquainted…

In fact, let me take this opportunity to personally introduce you to JD Dyola Journals ❤™ because now is a great time to start journaling with us! With the 2018 addition of My Journal, My Journey, My Color: JD Dyola’s Celebration of Color Collection™, there are now 100 JD Dyola journals from which to choose, that’s 25 series and in 4 groups JD Dyola Journals ❤™ that are completely different from one another:

GROUP 1: The 4-T™ “for TODAY” Journal Series (see sample below), the 4-H™ “por HOY” Spanish Editions (based on the 4-T™ series), and the 4-T™ Spinoffs (e.g., WIL–T™ Spinoffs and AWIR–T™ Spinoffs) support learning, reading, gratitude, and personal development. Each of these journals has a Thought Index™ to help you find specific entries quickly;

GROUP 3: New & improved, now with JD Dyola’s signature Thought Index™ and a Notes section! The Celebration of Life Collection™ (CoL) journals, without the quotes or regular prompts contained in Groups 1 & 2, are ideal for writing your own book or story. If you wish, fill-in the “Dedication,” “Acknowledgments,” and “About the Author” sections, since you are the author. And if not—say you just got the journal because you liked the cover—skip those pages and use it like any other journal. Finally, we’re super excited to announce that not only have all the covers and interiors been updated in some way, but CoL also has a new series: In Celebration of Flowers—Tulips!; and

GROUP 4: NEW! The Celebration of Color Collection™ (CoCLR) journals. Of all four groups these are the closest to traditional blank journals except they include JD Dyola’s handy Thought Index™ and a Notes section. There are 7 series,  Journaling in: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Additionally, as with all of JD Dyola’s series you have a choice of four books, or in this case shades, which graduate from dark to light. With the exception of the Indigo series, Book 1 in each set is generally the most intense form of the color and Book 4 the lightest (this is most noticeable in the color band that holds the title).

A Personal Plea, from My ❤ 2 Yours…Please take care of YOUrself!


CareAuthor Unknown

Self Care

Hi folks…What do you do each day to care for yourself?

Although, the Do/Don’t list above says Healthy Living Made Simple, we all know that simpleeasy. Most things in life are straightforward, but they involve a great deal of sacrifice, time, and discipline. That’s what makes them both elementary and onerous.

Take Care of YOU

My wake up call came recently after a dear family friend was diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening condition. It seemed to come out of the blue, but this condition took years to develop even though if was a shock when it finally erupted. My books are about nurturing yourself in some way everyday—emotionally, physically, and so on. Today I’m sending out a heartfelt plea to all of you…please make caring for yourself a priority. There are so many people who cherish and appreciate you. Is your name at the top of that list?

Remember, the Master Teacher said that we should love our neighbors as we love ourselves. You know what they tell us on the plane about putting the oxygen mask on yourself first? We each need to love ourselves and safeguard our own health before we rush to help someone else. The way we care for our personal health usually mirrors our approach to other areas of life as well.

My personal battles are getting enough rest, sleep, and exercise. So, I’m including myself in this too, we all need reminders. It definitely is not easy, but we can win at caring for ourselves if we make it a habit, and a daily priority. Then it does become easier.

Tips & Tools to Live HealthIER

Consequently, here are a few posts & sites that I have found helpful in the continuing struggle (BTW, I am not affiliated with any of the organizations or authors):








Fitness/Healthy Lifestyle Tips




Free Workout Plans for All Fitness Levels, Free Meals Plans & Motivation. I just discovered HASfit, and I love this fabulous couple: Coach Kozak & his wife, Claudia! Why? Because I own several fitness DVDs, but I have found it difficult to follow the instructor, at times, because the camera shot did not show the entire person or the guidance was lacking. With this couple, not only are the directions clear, about how to do each movement correctly, but they also explain ways to change the exercise for people at various fitness levels, while motivating you and sharing personal struggles of their own. Get your HASfit Interactive Trainer App  for iOS & Android (Reminder, I am not affiliated with HASfit, just passing the information along with the hopes that this might help you!)
