This week’s positive word
on our A-Z Inspirational Journey …
J is for
“It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey!’
This is one of the most popular quotes relating to enjoying your journey towards your goal. However, if you’re in a frustrated place at the moment you may find it hard to look at your journey as enjoyable. One of the best things to do if you’re feeling like you’re on a never ending treadmill is to STOP!
YES … STOP! STOP THINKING! STOP DOING!
JUST STOP … AND BREATHE
Take five minutes to sit in silence. Listen to your breathing and then think about all that you have that you are grateful for. Don’t think about the obstacles, don’t think about the challenges, with this exercise there are no buts’, maybes’ or cannot’, there are things in your life that are making this life journey worthwhile, lessons to be learnt you just need to understand them. There is a reason you have ventured on this path and one way to understand and appreciate that path is to be grateful for where you are now.
Imagine if all that was happening was happening for a reason, imagine the struggles were designed to enable us to move forward stronger than we were before. To believe that we have the power to push ourselves to another level. If you sit for a second and imagine how it would feel to get through these struggles … what would you see? What can you hear? What can you feel?
Sometimes we have to take a different route to help us move forward, but don’t ever lose sight of your goal, don’t ever believe you’re not capable of doing this. If your heart is telling you to follow a passion then it’s your mission to follow and accomplish whatever goals you feel you need to achieve. Your life is made up of different puzzles that sometimes really do feel like hard work to figure out. You MUST continue on this journey, even if it’s one small step at a time.
Believe in yourself, believe you can do this.
This week’s therapeutic creative writing exercise is to work on your journey every day this week:
Start writing down daily what you have achieved and you will soon become grateful that you are moving forward. Don’t look at the setbacks, the obstacles, the challenges, don’t focus on the negative, focus on the things that are carrying you forward, because if you believe you are here for this reason, you will continue to push through those barriers.
Things to remember on your journey:
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it
You will only regret the things you didn’t do, not the things you did
Every step counts no matter how small
Ask yourself … what can I learn from these challenges?
Be grateful daily
Wishing you love, happiness and fulfilment always
