Day one is in the books and Be Awesome Africa is underway !
Our goal for week one:
What we want to do with week one is shower the largest social media network in the world with post, re-post, statues and private messages about our campaign! It is still very early in regards to where we are in funds and publicity, but we believe that Facebook Storm will be a large part of our success. This week up until next Wednesday, the facebook team will post like crazy, and message as many of our friends about Be Awesome Africa.
What can you do? We ask that you do the same. You may not want to get to crazy (it can get annoying for most people) but a private message is better than a direct link on someone’s wall (Unless you are comfortable doing do). Copy the link: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/be-awesome-africa/x/3442576?c=home and send it to all of your friends and family!
Contributions: Thank everyone who has funded our project on Day 1. Our project is 6% completed and we are so pumped about that! With lots of time left we are confident in reaching our final goal $27,993 !!!
Until next time!
BeAwesome: #330 Why Writing A Journal Is Important
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.
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.
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.
