    I just realized that the Journal I have been keeping since September of 2009, as a matter of fact it is one year to the day, has been a negative journal. Whoa! I was shocked. I am going to replace this with a new journal that is positive. Looks like I am not the only one that kept a negative journal. This will be one more change for the better for me. That is a goal of mine. To be more optomistic about things. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Thanks Elizabeth. I really needed this.
  • This article is right on time. Improving my self-esteem is a priority for me and I will be using these suggestions in my journaling. I never realized how far down my self-esteem had gone until recently. But this has helped in reenergizing my efforts
  • I've always used my journals as a way to get rid of the bad energy that has happened through out the day, I will definitely be trying a new journal that does the opposite, thanks!

    Thank you so much! This article made me smile.

    Thanks for some of the ideas to use for positives during the day. I have tried to journal 5 positive thoughts a day but find it difficult and now I know why, the things I take for granted are the things you say I can list! I never thought to give myself credit for being courteous and helpful because these actions tend to be second nature, not conscience actions most of the time.

    I have never been good at writing anything, especially about myself. I think when I gained my weight my self esteem went out the door. No one tells you how great a job you do, how good you look, wow the house is all organized, when did you have time to do all that you do-- they along with myself thinks "I need to do more, if I did more I would not be so big." I get it ,if no one is going to pat me on the back I BETTER START TO JOURNAL MY OWN PATS ON MY BACK." THANKS this is great!!!
  • This is an eye-opening read for me. Thank you so much. I think just having a pretty binder is an inspiration to journal.
  • Wow.. guess i really needed to read this one... I dont think i can come up with 5 good things in a day.. goes to you show you where my head is at.. filled with FAT...
    guess i need help.. will have to give it a ry.
  • I've kept a journal off and on most of my life. I haven't been as consistent this past year because I tend to focus on the negative in my life instead of the positive, and I didn't want to keep a record of the sadness anymore. This article has inspired me to journal again. I can write 5 good things about myself and my day.

    I used to keep a journal when I was young. In fact, I found one from 1968!! and gave it to my son to read. He was floored. Maybe I'll try it again now. Never too late, right?
  • What a great ending to my day. Something nice to think about before I fall asleep.
  • RAMUELLER
    I have done this before and it really does work. Thanks for the reminder because I have been feeling depressed lately and unsuccessful. I plan on restarting this to break the cycle tonight!
  • What a great idea! I have rarely kept journals, but when I do they are always during a time of personal crisis. It'll be great to have some positive thoughts to look back on in the future and to share with my family someday.
  • wow, This is exactly what I needed. My journals are usually written in when I am in a bad mood, or have been crying. 5 positive things. I can do that, and I will do that. I have been feeling down. So this is the perfect pick me up! Thank you once again.
