Right Now: Here's What I Can Do To Get Close To Where I Want To Be

This weekend was a much relaxing as it was tiring. Right now. I want to go to bed. I want to sleep! But, I am fueled by passion. The hustle and the grind. Keep me up passed my bedtime. Writing this next journal entry.

Like most people. I am trying to get closer to the life I want to live. There is a life I value more than the one I currently have. Not that my current life is bad. But, I know the best is yet to come.

While most like to think that if you believe hard enough with no action. You will get everything that you want. Belief is important. It’s where we start! But, without action. Our beliefs are dreams that will never come true the way we want them to.

So, let’s get into journal entry 007. Click the Continue Reading button below!

Change: Here Is The ONE Things I Would Change About Myself Today

Today’s journal entry is going to be very interesting! This prompt statement is “something you want to change about yourself”. Like almost EVERYONE, there is a laundry list of things I would like to change about myself.

I’m 27 years old. I’m still trying to find myself. So, to be honest, I am changing who I am every single day. I have great days. I have okay days. And I even have bad days. What I have come to understand about life is that I can only control me. Me. Myself. And I. That is who I am responsible for, at this moment.

In time, that will change. But for now, that is where my life is.

So, now, let’s jump into this journal entry.

Best Thing: Let's Talk About What Happened To Me This Week

Here we are once again! It’s the fifth entry in my Year of Journaling series. If you have stumbled upon this blog series at this point, you can catch up on the series here. Today, I am going to talk about the best thing!

This entry will focus on the best thing that happened to me this week. When I first read this prompt, I was like “my week isn’t over yet. What if my best thing hasn’t happened yet”.

Hello, negative self-talk. It has been a while, hasn’t it! Instead of falling into the trap. The trap that would have me sitting in a space of negativity. I chose to reflect on my week with intention. “There is the best thing that I can talk about”, I told myself this and now here we are!

Let’s jump into today’s post!

Celebrate: Running My First 5K Was Great. Being Healthy is Awesome!

Ok. So I am back with the fourth entry into my Year of Journaling series! I took the last 3 days off. This was not by design or intention. I wanted to journal daily. So, I celebrate being able to consistently do it for the first 3 days.

But this past weekend, my body and mind had a different idea. Although, I am still in the beginning stages of my journaling journey. Hello, alliteration, LOL. I am obsessed with self-care and self-love this year. So, when myself said, “let’s relax this weekend.” I listened to Her.

With that bit of background information done, let’s jump into today’s entry!

Happy: It's The Small Things That Bring Us The Most Joy

Ha! We’re here for Day 3 of my Year of Journaling series! I am happy with my consistency thus far! This one is actually my favourite by far. I’ll give you a little background so you understand what I am talking about.

As an intellectual being. Seeking new information, daily. I value depth. I’m not a fan of superficial conversations. Friendships and relationships that lack change are difficult for me to stay in. For all my soul searching and seeking actions, I am the exact opposite at times.

A Year Of Journaling (2017): Entry 001

There are countless resources online that promote the benefits of journaling. To be quite honest, that is something I have known since I was a teenager. But some decisions to “fit in” caused me to stop keeping a journal. Not that anyone needed to know I kept a journal. It was more of a thing of negative self-talk.

The end of 2016 into the beginning of 2017 saw my greatest mindset shift to date! I came across this blog post via Pinterest and noticed it was a Blog Lovin’ link.
