Are you sometimes downright angry, afraid or ashamed?
Try this ReNEW YOU Emotional Vitality Tip of the Day.
Write in a journal to give your feelings a voice. There is no need to deny or repress what you truly feel when you write it on paper or type it on a computer.
Once expressed use the JOURNALriffic Method—the 4 Steps of Discovery. You will be able to choose for yourself how to move through your emotions toward solutions in a proactive, rather than reactive manner.
I developed the JOURNALriffic Method from a pattern that has worked for me through many years of some of my life’s most difficult trials. I am well-acquainted with blighted hopes, shattered dreams and unfulfilled desires both individually and with my family’s circumstances, yet I’ve learned to be positive and happy by choice. I’ve also dealt with lingering physical challenges and constant pain as a result of three car accidents. Although I’ve faced times of extreme disappointment and much of my life hasn’t turned out like I planned, I continue to find solutions to challenges, and I still love my life because I stay engaged in the process of creating a happy one.
With JOURNALriffic, you will address thoughts as they come up as a result of your present experiences. The idea is to work through your emotions and challenges and consistently work toward turning your weaknesses into strengths and enjoying your life. You will come to understand who you really are in light of the truth that no matter your past choices or experiences, you are not your history. You will begin to clearly see that you create your life in your present moments. Each day is a new beginning and holds countless opportunities for enjoyment, peace and the satisfying rewards of unselfish love.
Dr. Ronald Newsom gets right to the bottom line of defining your true identity when he says, “You are a good, unique person, endowed by your Creator, with sovereign [self-governing] power to act as a free, independent agent.”1
You have the intrinsic, God-given power to act and not be acted upon. With the help of JOURNALriffic, you will learn to use that power to move quickly through the process of aligning your thoughts, feelings and actions with your innate, individual worth. By doing so, you will ignite the proactive power within you which ignites the power of generations and provides far-reaching benefits. As you stay actively engaged in leaving your life story better than you found it, your doubts, insecurities, limitations and fears will diminish. You can proceed with vigor on the path that enables you to contribute your positive influence to the lives of those around you in your present moments.
It is my hope that you will benefit from this method of journaling so that you can extend your positive influence toward others in such a way that you will feel great satisfaction while taking deliberate action steps to experience more joy as you proactively create lasting happiness.
Use JOURNALriffic- Turn Your Pain Into Purpose With 4 Steps of Discovery to help you turn stress, anxious-thinking, anger and dysfunction, to hope, direction, happiness and peace.
