Journaling About Positive People

People have an impact on our lives everyday. This is true for the workplace, for our personal and family life or even in a casual place like the supermarket. These interactive experiences can be positive, negative or they can bring about a feeling of indifference. Of course indifference is not really a feeling and who wants to have negative interactions? This leaves us with the people who have had a positive impact on our lives. Journaling about these people can be a good thing.

We can explore and outline some of the reasons why these people have had such a constructive and affirmative influence on us. When we write down these reasons we can see what really spur us on. In addition, we see clearly the kinds of persons we need to surround ourselves with. We can now seek these people out, connect with them and have them in our social circles. Their positive influence will rub off on us and hopefully the saying that “birds of a feather flock together” will be true to us.

Journaling about people who have influenced us in a positive way should also cause us to be grateful that the universe has seen it fit to have brought these people into our lives. At times we are surrounded by many negatives, so much so that these positive people are like shining rays in a dim place. We should let these people know that they have influenced us in a good way and have made us optimistic. Making our gratitude known to them will make them feel like they have done something meaningful. For us, the telling of our gratefulness will be like a boomerang that comes back to us in the form of many more blessings.

So think about it. Who are we grateful to for their positive influence? What did they do? Let’s tell them about it. And let’s surround ourselves with more of those kinds of people.

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

Journaling for Gratitude

“If you count all your assets, you always show a profit.”
-Robert Quillen-

There are millions of reasons why we should give thanks; we don’t even have to look too hard for motivation. First of all there is today, a brand new day and we are alive! If that’s not exciting news; I don’t know what is. Sure there are bad days when things don’t go so well but for every situation that we are in, there is a worse situation that we can think of. On the bad days it can help if we journal our thoughts about what we have to give thanks for.

Similarly on great days we should write down the things we are grateful for so that we develop a constant attitude of gratitude. Everything gets better with practice especially in a hectic life. In these acts of writing down our thanks we reflect with a deeper understanding on what we have and the fortunate positions that we are in.

In addition to seeing our blessings in black and white, we attract more when we show appreciation for the ones we have. Instead of lack we invite abundance. This habit of not just giving thanks but writing it down can be transforming because of the internal change in how we perceive our own truth. As we focus more on our prosperity, we become much more hopeful and good things start to happen.

Let us write our thanks and see how the universe responds to us.

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