Sorry this week's ten minute fix is late. I was getting over a bad case of food poisoning (not that there's a good case of food poisoning). Also, don't forget to tune in Thursday for the very first My Life interview with Cecilia!
Since this experience, I’ve thought a lot about “pre-journal writing”. It’s really just a way to plan your day, set goals, and think optimistically. Not everything happens as planned, but some things do! And that’s pretty neat. Writing about what you want as if you already had it, is a powerful tool in positive thinking. I won’t go so far as to say your positive thinking is compelling the universe to give you what you want (if you’ve heard of The Secret, you know what I’m talking about), but it does help in some strange way.
So, take ten minutes to write about tomorrow. Pretend you’ve just had the perfect day and now you want to write it down so you can remember it forever. Be as unrealistic as you want. Just have fun with it and you may be surprised by the results. The point isn’t to predict the future, so don’t worry if not everything comes true. The point is to envision how you want your life to be and feel optimistic about the coming day.
