Hello!!! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, what with the holidays and wrapping up 2016 once and for all, blogging did not get it’s due.
21 Days In…
Well… I’m 21 days into the world’s new year and 21 days using my 5 Minute Journal, mentioned in my last post. They say it takes 21 days for something to become a habit, and I must say I’m thoroughly hooked. This 21st day of the New Year is even more special, because today is the beginning of my own personal new year, because… IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! My birthday is when the new year truly starts for me. From January 1st to January 20th, I spend time reflecting on my past year, discarding what does not help me grow, and thinking deeply about how I can improve upon and make this year even more special than the last.
This is my 54th year, a pre-celebration spending the entire year planning something big for myself for my 55th.
The Five Minute Journal
Let’s get back to the Five Minute Journal. This book has been a true Godsend for me. I love to journal, but I tend to be erratic, with multiple journals going at the same time; what this journal has done for me, is it’s caused me to start my day by:
- Writing 3 things I am most grateful for
- Listing 3 things which would make the day great.
- Create my daily affirmation for the day.
In the evening I list the 3 things which made my day great and I could have done to have made it even greater. I now pay close attention to the small things I sometimes take for granted.
I’m now truly living life to the Max!!
I did not make any grand resolutions in the typical fashion for 2017 but decided to go a different route, see my last blog post. Instead, I’m making small daily resolutions which are far easier to stick to. So far it’s working!
I’m blessed to see 54 and if I can possibly help it it’s going to be my best year yet!
