I’m doing some movie journaling of The Gentlemen! Now, this was actually the last film I saw in a movie theater, back on January 24, 2022, before the world imploded. I’ve been meaning to document The Gentlemen in my movie journal since I watched it the first time but kept putting it off. Well, two years later I’m finally getting to it! By now I’ve seen this movie ad nauseum and I just love it! I even saved my ticket and receipt to add in. Below is my process video creating this spread for The Gentlemen. I’m actually glad I waited so long because it came out perfect!

“Every day I see people doing great things in the world. What do they have in common? The courage to go after their dreams and make a positive impact. Franziska’s book shows how that message can support you in running your life and business based on courage, love, and kindness instead of fear.” -Sir Richard Branson
My Thoughts on The Courage Map
In The Courage Map, author Franziska Iseli takes us on her journey through the Silk Road. Along the way, she guides us through 13 Principles to develop courage and live life out loud despite our fears. The first and my favorite principle is STORIES. As our lives take shape we all begin to identify as the stories we tell about ourselves. And so often we cling to the negative stories we’ve developed to justify and excuse why we may not be where we want to be in life. Or to soothe ourselves for regretting not having had the experiences we wish we had. Some of us are perpetual victims, some of us believe for one reason or another we are undeserving of our desires and nothing could be further from the truth.
Unfortunately and fortunately the stories we tell become our beliefs. Every one of us can CHOOSE to change our stories at any moment. For me, this is the foundation in building and developing courage and I’m glad the author led with this. Franziska Islei does a wonderful job of walking the audience through each of her courage-building principles and I love that the author uses her personal journey along the Silk road to give the reader real-world examples of how to put each principle into practice. Unlike many self-help books, the author doesn’t just say. “do it this way”. She offers examples and real stories to illustrate her points and the effects they had and can have in our own lives. The fact that the book is based on the real-life experiences of the author gives it an added layer of depth and authenticity.
At the end of each chapter, Iseli suggests new thoughts and ideas we can adopt in regard to each principle in the form of ‘Travel Tunes’. There is also a list of thought-provoking questions for us to work through at the end of each chapter to help us dive deeper into the material and our own courage-building journeys. This book will guide you through building your very own courage map. In addition to the book, you can download a free copy of The Courage Map Journal for yourself here. For anyone wanting an even more in-depth experience, the author offers a course on her website. I personally have not taken the course but I enjoyed the book and found it inspiring and useful. I’ve begun adopting some of the ‘Travel Tunes’ for myself and look forward to living life more courageously.
My latest TV/Movie Journal entry features the Apple+ show See! As I have expressed in this post, I absolutely this series. See stars Jason Mamoa, Alfre Woodard, and Syliva Hoeks and is about a dystopian future where the human race has lost its sense of sight. Until Baba Voss and his wife give birth to sighted twins, changing everything.

The last ten days of this series is done! I cannot believe I completed this project! I really enjoyed switching up my routine when it comes to my Gratitude Journaling. But it has also given me an appreciation for the way that I usually record and journal my Gratitude. This project has definitely pushed my creativity to another level and for that I am thankful!
21 and 22
Days 21 and 22 feature the themes Edify and Prayer. I absolutely love the collaging on these pages.
Days 23 and 24
I was stumped with these pages so I did a bit of prep. Thankfully that kicked my ideas into high gear and I came out with this spread for Edify and Love.
Days 25 and 26
For themes of Compassion and Generosity, all I thought was that I wanted to do a black and white spread. Very pleased with the end result!
Days 27 and 28
Admittedly the struggle was real with these pages. Thankfully I managed to produce a spread I’m cool with.
Days 29 & 30
The last two days! These pages, featuring the themes of Restoration and Friendship, were pretty simple but lovely.
Yay! Gratitude Documented 2019 is complete! I’m proud of myself for getting the whole project done and not falling behind. I absolutely enjoyed this project and most likely will be participating next year as well. Just in one short month I can track my growth and pushed the limits of my creativity. And for that, I will always be grateful. For my other posts on Gratitude Documented you can check my links here, here, and here. For more information about the project, in general, check out the Illustrated Faith website. Process Videos can be found on my Youtube Channel. Find the playlist here!
The Second Ten days of Gratitude Documented 2019 has really brought my creativity out and has been such fun. Switching my routine up has really been beneficial for me. And although I’ve found it challenging, it has definitely helped me to grow. So here are the next ten days in pictures!
11 and 12
Pages 11 and 12 features the themes Glory and Scripture. I was a little uncertain with this spread, but it came out WAY better than expected. It is now one of my favorites of the entire journal so far.
13 and 14
Again I surprised myself with this layout. Featureing the themes of Mercy and Discipline, I pulled out a medium I rarely use and absolutely love the end result.
15 and 16
Admittedly I struggled with this layout. I did keep it simple and overall I’m pleased with the turnout. These pages feature Home and Legacy which can go hand in hand.
17 and 18
Also keeping it simple here for Hope and Heritage with scrap paper and collaging elements.
19 & 20
These pages feature the themes of Forgiveness a New Song. I had a thought about it and they came together fairly quickly.
I have to thank Illustrated Faith for this annual series. It has really pushed me and drawn out creativity I didn’t know I had within me. My other posts about the Gratitude Documented 2019 series can be found here and here!
