Almost a year ago I started writing out a journal program to help others think differently and reframe their days to be ones of excitement and joy, instead of obligation and worry.
As I began coaching two women this past month, I went back into my notes to find my original journal prompts.
How did this all start, anyway?
Inspired by Wayne Dyer while reading in Harvard Yard, I quickly put his book down that September day and started taking notes on what helped me think more positively. Your thoughts turn into actions, and your actions turn into habits- and nearly 11 months later, my entire life and thought process has changed 10-fold.
Although I was doing well last September, I was nowhere near where I wanted to be. By journaling and setting goals for myself, I was able to self-coach and use the tools I had learned from self-help books, coaching, therapy, DBT classes. and yes, even 12-step meetings.
I don’t believe there is any one way to enrich your life and gain a spiritual foundation. For me, it has been writing, connecting with source, and working with others.
So, I decided to share my first week of journal prompts in hope that you follow along and benefit from writing, like I have. It has truly been amazing to go back and see how far I have come since September, and even December 2016 when I first arrived in Massachusetts.
For Day One, I want you to truly think about 20 things you like about yourself. It broke my heart to hear that this was a challenge for some of my friends. However, with a little help, I was able to remind them of all their beautiful traits, talents, and gifts they have to share with the world.
So, I hope you get out a fresh notebook, pen, and follow along! I will also be posting these on my Mindful in Style Facebook page in case you would like to comment with your journal answers and connect with others.
Live beautifully, my friends!
