When I started the year I was so much into gratitude journaling until day 29 of 365 when I fell off the wagon. I do journal but not as occasionally as I would want or how I would want.
Every time you feel you’re getting a bit negative, try gratitude journaling. It will help you keep your mood in check. Write everything you are grateful for and why you are grateful for it. Journalling is a great way to get in touch with how you feel.
Sometimes we don’t know why we are feeling the way we are. Journalling will help you answer, ‘Why do I feel this way?.’
Ways To Use Your Gratitude Journal
- Plan your next day every evening.
- Plan your new week on Sundays.
- Map out your plan for the next creative experiment. For me planning my next experiment means doodling and forming little channels. Doodling helps me map out the process. I am not the best at doodling but it gets the job done for me.
- Write out quotes and verses and extrapolate on them. Extrapolate means writing your own understanding of the quote/verse or anything new that comes to you based on that quote/verse.
Based on this, it’s easier to now keep a gratitude journal. Journals will always remind you how your possessions were once just prayers and plans.
If you’re serious about becoming a wealthy, powerful, sophisticated, healthy, influential, cultured, and unique individual, keep a journal. ~ Jim Rohn
Personally I am Grateful For :
- Family, friends and acquaintances.
- The lessons I have learned in my 22 years of existence. Someone on Facebook just liked a photo from 2016. Which reminded me that I can’t even remember the problems I had then. But I picked up many lessons.
- Everything gets better with time. Calm down.
- My website. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this site. It allows me to do a lot while learning a lot too.
- The wisdom and maturity I have. On this note, most days I have this feeling of pressure to know what I need to know to perfect my craft or my life. I need to learn creative writing, I need to…
If you are like me, change the language to I want to. And you’ll take the pressure off yourself.
When you are at a low point, gratitude journalling will help you see the best in life. What you magnify becomes bigger.
