Imagine trying to build a house without a blueprint.
The chances of a successful outcome – let alone building the house you always dreamed of – are going to be pretty slim.
Our life is no different.
So many of us try to build our life without a blueprint. We end up years down the path before we realise we are not creating the life of our dreams.
Journalling is a powerful way to create a blueprint for our life.
Through regular journalling, we can develop a clear picture of the woman we want to become and the life we dream of creating.
We can use journalling to keep track of our goals, make plans to achieve them, celebrate our successes and reflect on our mistakes.
Journalling also allows us to reaffirm our abilities through writing about our positive qualities and experiences. This can be a huge self-confidence booster when self-doubt rears its ugly head.
I personally like to journal every morning as part of my non-negotiable routine. It allows me to reaffirm my goals, remind me of the woman I want to be and start my day with intention.
I also like to change it up by choosing a deeper question to ponder.
Here are some of my favourite journaling questions:
- How is this happening for me and not to me?
- What’s holding me back?
- Who would I become and what would I do if I wasn’t afraid?
- How am I lucky to be me?
- What do I want to be true about myself and my life?
Do you keep a journal as part of your everyday routine?
