Hello friends! I hope today’s post finds you doing well, and if your mind is telling you that you aren’t doing to well, and your body is echoing that sentiment, then hopefully I can cheer you up a bit.
I have been in Waco, Texas, for several months now. Only a 12-month adventure that is nearing the half-way point. The people are nice. The traffic nearly non-existent. The gas prices much lower than California. But my days have been long. The learning curve has been steep. My patience has been tested on many occasions. I have had to swallow my pride not once or twice, but several times. What does all this mean? This is LIFE.
I write in my journal every day. I haven’t missed a day since I started this new venture back on the 24th of February 2017 (getting close to 2-years). This small task has kept me going when I have felt like I wasn’t getting anywhere. I write about different things every day. Sometimes those journal entries turn into blog posts, a few of them helped fill-in the pages of my first book: “Exceptional Every Day”, and many of those entries simply stayed right there on the paper, and were simply a reminder that I was alive, able and willing to fulfill my purpose of helping as many people as possible.
Writing, like meditating, helps me visualize what I hope to accomplish. It helps me adjust my attitude and ultimately my perspective. It helps me get better.
Today I wanted to share several titles for journal entries that I have had over the past few months with the hopes that maybe just a few simple words or sentences might light a little fire into your life. I once heard that if one word can explain something, then why use two. Perhaps just a few of my words may catapult you towards creating an entire story for yourself. It’s time for you to write your story. Make it what you want it to be, not what someone else tells you it needs to be…
“Don’t let your feelings lie to you.”
“We do not remember days, we remember moments.”
“Make your life mean something.”
“We often cause our own anxiety.”
“What is your optimal you?”
Let’s keep our stories going so that the adventure never stops!
