Sometimes we need to express our thoughts. We have so much to say and no one to tell it to. Sometimes a friend is not what you are looking for. Sometimes our mom and dad are not the ears we want to express our feelings to. Sometimes your thoughts need to written instead of spoken. Here is why a writing in a journal is important:

Talk about yourself:

Who doesn’t like to toot their own horn (Talk about yourself) once in a while? A side from being cocky or full of yourself, you should be able to praise some aspects of “you” every day. We often forget that this is an important part of mental health. In your journal should reflect on how life is going, the people around you, the past and things you love most. It is an open book for you to talk about experiences and “you”. You should always be able to find something positive about your self in your journal.

Success/Scheduling

A journal is a great place to write down your goals and accomplishments. It can also be used as a schedule. For starters, you can write the things you want to complete in a day, week, month and eventually a year. A long with planning, a journal should also be used for goal setting. Making a list of things you want to accomplish is important, and should be used as a reminder for everyone.

Responsibility

Hold yourself accountable for what you write in your journal. Your journal should be a place were you tell the truth. Writing down what you truly believe will allow you to make a bigger and more realistic picture of what you want. With that, it will help you figure out how and what you need to do to get there as well.

Writing a journal today is more than, talking about a girlfriend or a boyfriend. It is not about gossip or telling yourself how much you hate your best friend, teacher or coworker. Writing a journal is about relaxing your mind. Taking you away from your normal life and writing. Writing about what makes you feel good. How things are going. What you can do to make your life more pleasurable. Journal writing is about finding you. Finding different interest. Finding what that makes you smile. Of course it can be used for sad and angry times of your life, but remember: All negative things in life should be used to motivate you in a positive light.

NEMO

I love Disney movies. Something about animations and the colors. Voice changes. It works. Some people think it’s strange. But for me. I love it. One of my all time favorites is Nemo. Now I can watch this movie over and over. And learn something new each time. It is so rich in wealth (If you look) with information. It is action packed! You may stop and think. What is he talking about? Action packed? Marlin (Nemos father) displayed action the entire movie. Objects. Things. People. Can be taken away from you at anytime. We often forget and do not remember or truly think about how much we really care or need this thing (what ever it is you care about) until it is gone. When you take action on something. Your mind is made up. You have no reason to stop. Nor any reason to give up. You take action and get what you put into your valid effort. If you’ve saw Nemo. You know the ending result of Marlins actions.

ACTION

The fact or process of doing something. Typically to achieve an aim. Demanding tougher action against a thought or idea. The way in which something such as a chemical has an effect or influence on something. Work. Act. Operation. Battle. Take action and keep going. When things are difficult. When possible ways seem impossible. Move. At least try. Get what you want. When something is in your front view. Be inspired to reach it. If it means that much. Take action and grab it.

Those who are AWESOME take ACTION. Instead of sitting around and crying. Instead of making excuses. We take action to see the possibilities at hand. The first step is trying. Trying to overcome whatever that is in front of you. The second step is consistency. And understanding your actions may take a hit. But keep going. ACTION
