Keep Track Of The Positives Instead Of The Negatives


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Keeping track of the positives in my life keeps me focused on what I do right instead of what I do wrong. That keeps me moving forward instead of backwards. Now, I cut myself some slack and keep a journal of what was positive in my day.It makes me smile just looking at that journal knowing there is nothing negative in it.

Before all I was doing was finding fault with myself and guess what it never motivated me to change. I just felt stuck. Instead I create a problem solving journal for when I get stuck mentally. I write down the issue and try and find ways to change or accept what's bothering me or stressing me out.
