Journaling To Change Our Thoughts

We all know that our thoughts lead to our actions and both guide our lives. Hence, it’s best to start out with positive thoughts. Yet, this is not always the case. Many times our thoughts are negative; our actions reflect this pessimism; and our lives become something we do not want it to be.

The good news is our thought processes can be changed. When we journal the negative thoughts that we have we can really take a good look at what we are telling ourselves. By seeing it, we can take stock and then we can begin to change negative thoughts into positive ones.

When positive thoughts are written down, we can see them and we can live them. Every negative thought that we have can be overridden by a positive one that we will write. It is like practicing optimism. If we are not hopeful, it is worth rehearsing. Our very survival depends on hope.

It could also be that we are lacking confidence in a certain area. We could simply write down the way we want our thoughts to be, a sentence or two that will prod us on to facing our fears. It’s possible we could also find out the reason for our lack of confidence when we journal our thoughts. If we find the source of the problem, it’s easier to fix. So go ahead change your thoughts.

Remember there is nothing like words in black and white to help you see where you are and where you are going.
