The Best Thing To Buy In 2016? A Journal.

Do you want to know the best thing you can buy to help make 2016 your FINEST YEAR EVER?

A journal.

There’s something very inspiring and motivating about getting a new journal. I’ve got several with puh-lenty of blank pages yet to fill, but I like to treat myself to a New One for the New Year.

Funny story about buying the journal…
Barnes & Noble seriously has an entire wall of journals. Big ones, little ones, leather-bound ones, artistically-decorated ones, quote-bearing ones…

“How FUN!” I thought, as I dove into what seemed like a vast sea of journals. “How will I ever choose just one?”

What I discovered is that, evidently, I have become very particular about the kind of journal I prefer. I like a notebook-sized, hard cover (gotta have the hard cover) journal AND it has to have that satiny ribbon to hold my place when I close the book.

After an exhaustive search, I found only one journal.
ONE JOURNAL~ (out of, ohhh… I don’t know…5 million?) that fit my specs.
It’s priiiiitty fancy.  

I love how the daily instructions
are printed on the cover.

 

 

 

 

Journal

 

 

I had visions of rainbow colors and unicorns on the cover, with maybe a profound quote or an inspiring word like “Gratitude” etched in gold.

Nope. Just this word…

Journal

Funny. And appropriate. Tells me what it is AND what to do with it.

There are many, many ways to use a journal, but to be effective with any of them, you need to have a CLEARLY DEFINED GOAL. (***See below)

I’ll post some resource links about “How-To Journal” below, but this post is about BUYING A JOURNAL. So I want you to go to Barnes & Noble right now and buy yourself a journal.

It’s The Best Thing To Buy in 2016!

I’d love to hear about YOUR favorite ways to journal. Please let me know in the comments below.

***If you don’t have a CLEARLY-DEFINED GOAL, I’d love to help. I’m offering FREE CLARITY SESSIONS until Jan 15th, so go grab one before they’re all gone.

Some posts about Journaling:
My favorite form of journaling, the one that changed my life and inspired me to become a coach, is the MSU Method. (
What’s Your Story?)

Another fav~ great if you’re short on time. (The 10-10 Exercise)

This post shows an example of MSU’ing. (Eat, Pray, Love…Journal)

Another great example of MSUing (How I Sold My House in a Week)

This post shows what can happen QUICKLY when you MSU (I Really SOLD MY HOUSE!)

Let Go Of The Cursed Hows, So The Blessed Hows Can Come

According to Mike Dooley of Tut.com, we don’t need to know HOW we’re going to get what we want. He says we need to let go of the “Cursed Hows,” so we don’t limit the infinite possibilities of ways the thing we want can show up. (Here’s a short video of Mike explaining that.) Continue reading

MY Course In Miracles ~#3

Miracle #3 ~ The Angels Arrive

On October 2, my house was finally empty, clean and ready for the new owners to move in.

But on October 1, it didn’t seem like it was possible and I went into full-blown panic mode. The clock was ticking (LOUDLY) as I frantically packed, donated and discarded a house full of stuff. Continue reading
