Often times when I teach a class I will mention the importance of the use of journaling – physically writing down your personal experiences and insights on any given subject or set of experiences. I feel it is important for your energy and subconscious to co-mingle while putting your thoughts on a solid piece of paper. The very act of transferring your thoughts to paper via pen or pencil is an energy-packed exercise and allows the energy to flow and play out in your subconscious. You also know have record of the experience which offers you the opportunity to see how far you’ve come from where you were when writing the journal entry.
In this month of January, many people have looked at various goals and resolutions. Earlier we talked about your intentions. All of these are basically the same thing—a method of moving forward with your chosen future.
Many resolutions and goals have already been broken. You’ll be paying for that gym membership for a while without any usage –that’s why these things are so inexpensive. Gym and fitness place owners know only a few will continue to show up; the rest will pay and not show up.
This year try setting a goal or a resolution with the act of journaling on a regular basis in mind. It will keep you track better and again that record of how far you’ve come from where you were can’t be overemphasized.
A simple notebook will do and a few scribbles about your day or week will suffice. Just try and write regularly – good habits as well as bad start with regular repeatable activities. Set your goals at a place of comfort –achievable as opposed to non-achievable. Be honest with yourself.
When you really want something in this world—you will find a way to get it. Every child knows this.
The same can be said of adults though. This year, try something different to keep you going in the direction you want to go. Journaling may help in your endeavors.
