New Journal Idea

Okay so I have to admit that I stole this from Kim Flynn Queen of the Mama biz.  She started journaling and said this is such a powerful way to journal.  You  start off by naming 5 things you are thankful for that day.
1. my kids
2. my husband
3. my house
4. my mom
5. new challenges
Then you continue and write 3 affirmations.  An affirmation is
1. To declare positively or firmly; maintain to be true.
2. To support or uphold the validity of; confirm.
So your affirmation needs to be positive and something you truly want.
1.  My house is wonderfully clean at all times.
2.  My body is in the best possible shape, and I only feed it healthy things.
3.  My children are always well mannered and incredibly smart.

Then your write a vision journal.  Pick 1 of your affirmations and in the most detail you can describe, put it down on paper, or print.

My house is the definition of cleanliness.  It always smells delightful, and every item in my house has a place and it is always in its place.  The beds are always neatly made.  Every article of clothing and toy and book is always neatly in its place.  Everything is vacuumed and dusted, swept and mopped.  The windows and mirrors are always clean.   Every cupboard, drawer and closet is neatly organized and all things are easily found.  The dishes are always done and the sinks are always shined.  The refrigerator is always clean and organized.  The wash is always caught up.  And the desk and all the papers are always filed away where they belong.  The things that are not being used are all boxed up and labeled so they will be easily found when we need them.  The house is free from clutter and trash.  This all happens easily and daily.  My children make sure that all of their toys are cleaned up and put away and their rooms say clean.  We all help to keep our house clean.

Now supposedly this way of journaling is supposed to help us to achieve our goals and keep a more positive mindset.  I will keep you posted.  Has anyone tried this before... have you had success?
