S.M.I.L.E. Journal Blog

Journaling with a S.M.I.L.E.

Do you have a Journal?

January 6, 2021

Journaling is known to have many benefits, and I have experienced those benefits since the late 80s. I always trusted the paper and pen. I can express any emotion on paper, then allow my mind to bridge my thoughts to my heart to understand that I am uniquely created. So, I know that journaling can help with personal growth, improved communication skills, and increased self-awareness. 

Developing a journaling practice can help deal with negative thoughts and stress management – determine whether you are dealing with “distress” or “eustress.” You will be surprised by how self-reflection will help you discover “who you are.” 

What a Year!

December 30, 2020

As we are wrapping up the Year 2020, what lessons you have learned this year make you say, “Uhm.” If you did not journal during 2020, I would advise you to take a moment to write the top 5 to 7 lessons that are having you approaching life a little different as you grow into 2021, before the pandemic.

What’s impressive about living through 2020 we thought we had a little more control over time. Although I knew time was constant before the COVID-19 pandemic, it just solidifies it even more. We are only given 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, and 86,400 seconds daily. I once had a friend asked me did God give me 27 hours in a day. You may be laughing; however, I probably can ask you the same question.

As I reflect over 2020, I recognize that I need to Check My STATUS a little more often on budgeting my time. I only get 86,400 seconds daily – and God does not carry over seconds into the new day.

Therefore, I grow into the new year with a refreshed understanding of the value of my time.

Check My S.T.A.T.U.S. in life daily:

Practicing Self-Love by being mindful of what I think, feel, and want; permitting myself to be me; and live harmoniously by purposely aligning my spiritual, physical, financial, family, business, mental, and social goals to my beliefs.

I will walk Tenaciously every day to know that I cannot give up on myself and what God has purposed for me to accomplish.

I will commit to monitoring my emotions to behave positively to empower myself and others to practice responding with an Attitude of love and not hate or anger.

I am confident that my Talents will help people grow to their greatest potential, personal and professional.

I am grateful for what 2020 has exposed me to, which gives me the wisdom to know that I have access to limitless skies – the possibilities in 2021 are Unlimited.

As I wrap up on my STATUS check, I love the Strength that continues to build inside of me, growing my knowledge and skills to achieve whatever my mind visualizes.

I welcome 2021 with the expectancy of Love & Hope.
