Journaling

Journaling

Have you ever wondered how a journal can be so valuable? How a pen and paper can be something that some put on such a high pedestal that it is proclaimed as one of their most valuable tools?

Let’s flash back in time… this method has been being used by brilliant minds for as long as humans have been able to write. Documenting your thoughts, writing out your feelings, discovering new things about yourself or something you’re pondering by writing it down has provided us some of the best pieces of literature or education we have.

It can all start with a journal.

One of the most popular questions I’m asked is how to properly journal in a way that helps you.

Everyone says they don’t know what to write or feel silly so I decided to create not only a guide to why journaling works and how you can remove all of the stigmas around how it’s “supposed” to work so it can work for you but I also created a guide of prompts that you can download and use to help you when you’re feeling stuck.

The guide is provided in audio form, linked below. In the episode I break down what journaling really is, things to know, how to make time for it, and how you can make it best work for you.  I also created a free downloadable list of ideas for you to use to start your own journaling journey.

The prompts can be easily downloaded onto your phone or laptop to access anytime you’d like.

I’m excited to share my favorite tool with you in a different and more detailed way than ever before. I hope you love it!  Happy writing!! 


Let’s start a discussion here; Is journaling a tool that you’re already using in your life? What is your favorite way to use it? 

Accountability

Accountability

Accountability. It really is the key everyone is looking for.

Its just not the fake, easy, extra shiny and glittery kind you can buy off the shelf on your way out the store like blame is.

If everyone would stop trying to point fingers, blame others, or try to find some “reason” as to why something is a certain way and realize that accepting the facts of your own involvement, your own choices every moment of every day, then all that crap that you’re piling up around you as the “culprits” would diminish and you could get back to the real situation, YOU.

Greatest Gift

Greatest Gift

A while back I got a suggestion to record something talking about my biggest “ah-ha moment” and as I thought about it, a bunch of things popped into my head. As I was revisiting it one stuck out more than the others. 

Honestly, this has been a moment that birthed a thousand more and is something that I will forever be grateful for. 

Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear something and then something inside of you just clicks? That’s what this moment was.

I was listening to Gary Vee speak at his book launch for the #askgaryvee book and something he said sparked a curiosity in me that’s been very much alive ever since. Continue reading “Greatest Gift”

Reviews

Reviews

Do you only leave reviews when you’re unpleased?

When something didn’t go your way or you feel like you were mistreated?

It seems that there is a large group of people who only utilize the review option online when they are pissed and need to rip an establishment a new one over something.

Is that you?

Or do you leave reviews when you have a GOOD experience too? Continue reading “Reviews”

Intentional Shopping

Intentional Shopping

Are you one of those people who only gets certain things for certain stores?

Because I am.

I frequent Trader Joe’s and Aldi more than anything BUT neither of them have the oats I like so I go to Dierbergs for those and for fage yogurt because I’m obsessed. AND Annie’s Burritos because also obsessed. (OH, and the local produce stand because they’re unbeatable on produce. Plus it’s the cutest place ever and makes me so happy!) Then there are items that I refuse to purchase anywhere besides Sam’s Club because the price point is just too good to pass up. I mean, I can get a massive bag of coffee beans at Sam’s for roughly the same price as a small, off brand bag at a regular grocery store and I just am not about that life.

I think we all have our things. Things we like from certain places for certain reasons. Continue reading “Intentional Shopping”

The Ripple Effect and Its Impact

The Ripple Effect and Its Impact

I’ve spoken about the ripple effect before and will continue to do so as it’s such a beautiful way to see the power of your actions, your words, your intentions.

Well, this morning one of my long time clients sent me a message sharing a win that one of her clients sent to her. It was thanking her for teaching her the Wheel of Intentional Living. It was explaining how different her life is now that she’s started making her mornings a priority and how powerful the act of consistent journaling has become in her world. Continue reading “The Ripple Effect and Its Impact”

Constant Game

Constant Game

Sometimes it’s a constant game of calling yourself out. Yep, every time you have a negative thought, or want to ignore a task, or find yourself going down the rabbit hole of fiction after making an assumption.

That work never stops. It’s something you have to actively change, address, and improve on.

Does it get easier? Yes. Continue reading “Constant Game”

Behind The Curtain

Behind The Curtain

We all want to see behind the curtain sometimes, right?

 

Take a look at what’s REALLY happening in someone’s life or behind the scenes, know the real story. Well, that is something I take really freaking seriously so this week, I decided to do just that. 

Continue reading “Behind The Curtain”

Recommit

Recommit
During the weeks approaching the new year, there is a lot of pressure out there to make the right choice when it comes to goals. It seems like the majority is saying that if you don’t make massive goals then you’re not going to achieve any growth and/or success.
The pressure gets louder than the purpose and as a result, a lot of us are left feeling overwhelmed, like we’re not doing enough, and a bit hopeless.
