I write in a private notebook constantly.
It’s cathartic, therapeutic, and creative.
Often my journaling will take the form of addressing myself directly, and this includes reminders to help strengthen and guide me in challenging times.
Here is one of those entries, which I believe can apply to all of us…
Remember to be clear and honest with your intentions, expectations, and actions.
Remember to zoom out and look at the whole picture with clarity of focus and honesty.
Remember that you can trust your intuition about what matters and what should not be dramatized, fretted over, or inflated with inaccurate importance.
Remember that integrity is doing the right thing even if no one is watching.
Remember how you do not want to feel, and that means not choosing the options / actions that result in these unwanted feelings.
Remember that you know your triggers and can use that awareness to control yourself.
Remember that you always have a choice.
Remember that you have the power to be a person that you look up to.
Remember to practice the qualities that you admire and appreciate in others.
Remember to keep it simple by choosing kindness and good orderly direction.
Remember that you are enough, right-now-as-you-are.
Remember that you are worthy of love.
