Motivational Journal

Monday, July 15, 2013

I keep a motivational journal. In it, I write motivational saying that I come across. Some are in magazines I read. Some I come across in everyday reading. Some I come across on SP. Most of them are ones that come from reading others' blogs. I thank the people that share them from the bottom of my heart.

When I get down or need an extra push, I bring out the journal and read it. If someone around me needs a little extra encouragement, I find the best one for them and share it with them. It's great therapy for me.

    Great idea, Patty... I copy images to a file when I see quotes on SP or FB that I like, but then don't think to go back and read them.

Here, catch, just sent some motivation your way!

    My autistic step son when having tough times would say "Don't give up!" If he was having problems with school material he would say this to himself and keep trying till he grasped the subject. I use this as my motto when times are tough or I feel like giving in.

Journalizing sounds like a fantastic way to generate motivation Patty!

    That's a really good idea. I love journaling but have decided I don't want to leave ALL my thoughts on paper. ;-) I like the idea of the motivational journal to keep track of things that are helpful to me. Thanks!
