Journaling to Happy

Are you happy? What does happy look like for you? Daily I help women get to their happy. However, each woman defines it differently. The pursuit of happiness is ongoing and unattached from people and things. 

In my sessions with the girls I mentor through Divas, Inc., my nonprofit organization, I focus on the exploration of emotions. Try knowing and understanding how you feel and react will help with defining your happy.

Do you journal? If not, you should. Picking out a pretty journal and a nice pen would be my favorite part of the process. I would often forget to journal for a few days and then all together. When you make change to daily habits, a mind shift occurs. 

Stick to a diet for 21 days and see how it's easier to pass up fatty foods. 

It takes 21 days of repeatedly doing something before your mind registers it as a habit. Some people need as long as 60 days. For this reason, my development programs are a minimum of 90 days for motivated women seeking change. 

If you haven't found your happy. If you need help defining your happy. Or if you want to cultivate positivity and measure your growth. Get a journal. 

Every day. Yes, every day journal these five things. 

Every morning before starting your day complete these:

1. Today I am thankful for: (list five things) 

2. I am: (an affirmation)

If you aren't there yet, speak it into existence. What do you want to become?

Each night before bed, reflect on your day with these:

3. What were the three best parts of my day? 

4. One trait that I really love about myself is:

5. One positive thing that I can do to make tomorrow better is:

The power of positive thinking is one of the greatest tools you have to living euphorically.

 

Daily Affirmation: Changing my thoughts will be a breeze!

31 days of affirmations! How fast did this month go?

I end this series with: Changing my thoughts will be a breeze! Read it, believe it, receive it!

It all starts with our thinking, which leads to change. Such a simple, yet magnificent tool that we all embody.

An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change. Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation.
— Louise Hay

I challenge you to pick your favorite affirmation and repeat it daily for the next 30 days. Email me or comment below on what that affirmation is. It doesn't even have to be one that I've shared with you. Just an affirmation that you know will lead to the change you desire in your life. I truly believe that we all deserve to be euphorically happy and live our passions, while making our dreams reality. What are you waiting on?

Positive thoughts will make magnificent changes in your life. If you know someone who could benefit from these affirmations, share away!  Have a wonderful weekend!

 

Daily Affirmation: Own your story, trust your process

I own my story and trust my process, fully! Read it, believe it, receive it! 

I often say "own your story and trust your struggle!" What does all that mean? Every situation, every circumstance, everything that makes you- you...own it!

Transient

Accept it! Embrace it! It's your story, it's not going anywhere. Forgive yourself and forgive others!  I’m not going to lie and say that’s an easy task. However, you will forever be stuck, until you OWN it, even if it seems that you are moving forward.

 Once you own that story, share it with others, share it often. Not everyone will appreciate your story, and guess what?!? That's fine! You will know who you feel comfortable and trust enough to share with. Healing will begin and change will ignite.

Then pick up that imaginary pen and keep writing and living. This time eliminate the pain, the fear, guilt, and anything that was holding you back. Learn from your own stories and mend the error in your thought process to avoid operator error in your upcoming chapters.

Own your story, trust your struggles. No pity parties. This isn't about all the wrongs, but how you can bring all the right! It's your social obligation to let your light shine.

Positive thoughts will make magnificent changes in your life. If you know someone who could benefit from these affirmations, share away!

Daily Affirmation: No more lies!

I let go of all the lies I tell myself. Read it, believe it, receive it!

Hunay!!!! Let me repeat that one more time, just for myself.  I let go
of all the lies I tell myself.

Transient

I stopped lying to myself "officially" in 2004. I'm a realist, so the
lies I would tell myself were rationalizations. 

I did XYZ because XYZ happened or because XYZ did XYZ.  Common of those that
play victim and have difficulty accepting responsibility for their own
actions. 

 

Adults do what they want to do.

Often times we limit our thought process to believing that we have no
choice. That's a lie. You may not want to do something so you
verbalize that you can't.  You may want to do it, but not bad enough. Some
things you want, may require additional steps, which you aren't ready to
take.

"I can't quit my job."

Yes you can. You would need to develop a plan:

                What type of work would you like to do instead?

                Determine an exit strategy 

Replace the word “can’t” with:

                I choose not to

                I won’t

                I don’t want to

                I’ve decided not to

We lie to ourselves about people in our lives.

“I know he loves me although he has other women.”
 “Aunt Loraine isn’t a drunk, she’s just animated.”

Healing emotional wounds requires you to get rid of denial that beautifies ugly truths of family history, relationships, and personal experience.

Daily Affirmation: Joy Overflows in my life

Joy overflows in my life. Read it, believe it, receive it! Yesterday we were radiating positive energy and today we have so much joy it overflows. How good does that feel to you? Close your eyes and imagine what makes you the happiest. Things that makes your soul smile and cry at the same time.  You have that times infinity.

You can now share this joy and happiness with others.

You only have to believe that you are worthy of such experiences. I believe you are. Now just receive it!

Daily Affirmation: I radiate positive energy

I radiate positive energy. Read it, believe it, receive it! People often say, "I'm happy, I'm just not smiling." *I used to be one of those people* Years ago my friend asked her son, "are you happy?" He replied, "yes." She then instructed, "well smile, if you're happy." He smiled, I smiled,and she smiled. Children usually generate great positive energy. A young child can smile at us and all of life's worries are gone for those few seconds. A smile has nourishing properties. I make an effort to smile at everyone I see each day. Something as simple as a smile, can make a world of difference for someone with no hope. These interactions need to be genuine.

In order to radiate positive energy, you must come from a good place. You have to take care of yourself!!!

Love and accept yourself for where you are today.
Smile!
Be appreciative.
Pour into others, but leave enough for yourself.
Laugh often.
Today is the best day of your life. (Every day)
Laugh often. (No typo)
Don't give your power away!
Smile!

Positive thoughts will make magnificent changes in your life. If you know someone who could benefit from these affirmations, share away! Are you happy? Email me or let's discuss in the comments. Have a  wonderful week!

Daily Affirmation: Worthiness

I am worth the change to become a better person. Read it, believe it, receive it! The average person doesn't like change and will do everything to remain comfortable. Even if that comfort zone is a living hell. Fear and self doubt attack insecurities within your mind, which will scare you right back into complacency.  Ever start a diet and three days in you realize that you are eating worse than before you even started? Me either. :)  Change is hard work. You are amazing and you do not need anyone to validate that. Just as you don't need permission to change.  You are worth the change...if you want it. Positive thoughts will make magnificent changes in your life. If you know someone who could benefit from these affirmations, share away!
