Goals

About a month ago I was reading through the Farmer’s Almanac and saw a small article – a blurb almost – about writing in a journal everyday even if it wasn’t much, perhaps even just to track the weather or something like that.

Now, I have probably heard that before with my background in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and my keeping a journal of sorts beginning in high school.  But I hadn’t done much for a while and the article kind of struck a cord in me.

Suffice it to say that I took it to heart and started trying to write just briefly at the end of the day.

It was interesting to see how that unfolded.  Usually I had no clue what I was going to say or even write about.  And I did not get it done every day.  But as I picked up my journal, put down the date, then started to write whatever came to my mind.

Sometimes it was just a quick sentence or two about something that happened or that I felt that day.  Other times the words would come flowing out, and I’d end up writing a good paragraph or two, maybe even more!

And I may try something similar with my blog.  It’s been a long while since I had the time and equipment handy to do this.  I’m thinking it’s time for a change – to just do a little and see how it goes…

  1. That is a great idea! And I’ve found that focusing on good things, especially things you are thankful for, puts you in a positive frame of mind, and that Heavenly Father pours out even more blessings on you. 🙂

  2. Hey, thanks for sharing! One of my goals this year has been to journal everyday in the 5 minute journal, basically in the morning 3 things that you are grateful for, that would make your day great, 1 daily affirmation and then at night 3 amazing things that happened and 1 way you could have made your day better. All the best in your journaling and hope 2016 is your best year yet!
