One of the things I like about SP is journaling. A few years ago I kept a journal and it helped me stay focused on what I was trying to accomplish. The other day I pulled out those old journals and realized that it helped me vent, it helped me focus on goals, it helped me with my creativity...I like to draw and do crafts and write. I also noticed that i was more likely to do things that I wrote down. When I look back at my list of to do's, I have done everything on it.
Once I went back to school I stopped journaling but still made to do lists. My current one has about 50 things on it that I want to accomplish in the next year. Now that I'm finished with school, and with the help of SP, I am journaling again.
I not only write in my journal, I cut out pictures of things I want to accomplish or want to have, I paste things that make me happy, like old cartoon characters..the Flintstones, Jetsons.... wrappers of healthy food items that I could have instead of.... I also put pictures and quotes from inspirational people. And I always put things in there to remind myself to be kind to me--This step took a long time for me to accomplish. There's so much that goes into my journal. If you are not journaling, you should give it a try. THere are so many layers to us that still need to be uncovered, acknowledged and loved.
