More Pocket Journaling & A Site You Will Want To Check
It's late, we've been having bad thunderstorms with high winds and hail and I've got a bit of a headache. I'm going to try to cram lots of information in for you quickly. First, more Pocket Journaling. I have another zip for you tonight but forgot to make a preview. You can download here: http://www.4shared.com/zip/Kmrc39bvba/DAA_pocketjournal_wk3.html? Today I'm going to ask you to be brave, We all have fears; they are things we try to put out of our minds usually. Facing up to them is a big step towards defeating those fears. So, today, choose a card and write down one of your fears. That's it. Right now we're not going to do anything but acknowledge the fear. When we start doing journal jumps, this would be a good card to pull and explore, but for right now just own it and put it aside. http://ropaxman.com/ and discovered that she is offering a freebie I think you'd find useful. It's a free printable Life Planner. Just sign up for her mailing list and she will send you the links. With so many of us trying to make improvements in our lives, this is a great find. While reading other posts I'd missed, I learned she also has some wonderful Inspiration Cards (also free). These cards feature affirmations that will help you change self sabotoging thoughts and move you in the direction you want your life to go. Change your thoughts; change your life. Seriously, this isn't wishful thinking. In addition to being a source of inspiration and positive affirmations, I can also see how we could use those cards as prompts to journal. For instance, say you randomly draw the card that says, I am brave. Maybe you don't think you are, but I'll bet if you try you can think of instances that prove you can be. What about the day a big dog menaced your child? Bet you didn't think twice before stepping in between the dog and child. Don't discount that. We need to learn to give ourselves credit. Doing so reinforces behaviors we want to increase. If you sign up for Ro's mailing list, she will also share her personal story with you and you will understand why she is interested in passing along wisdom she's gained. Hope I haven't muddled that too much as I hurry to finish up before the storm takes over again.
