9 Tricks to Mastering the Best Journaling Process



In life, we are no stranger to hardships and discouragement.

Today, I want to share my top-secret Journal System that helped pull me through the most tragic times of my life.

If that is you today, struggling to find peace and answers, get yourself a notebook or a lank sheet of paper and get started today.  Each day will widen your awareness and you are guaranteed to make a huge break-through.


A Quick Confession

Before we get started, it’s important to talk about notebooks.  I sunk so much money into dozens of varieties of notebooks.  Some I filled but most either remained empty because they were not practical or a handful of pages were filled.

I evolved. My favorite notebooks are composition books. So light weight and convenient, you can take them anywhere.  Just make sure you get the hard-backed kind.  Then you never need a clip board or a hard surface to write on.


9 Tricks to Journaling

#1 – Date

Writing the date will help you look back and see how far you’ve come in a short period of time.

#2 – 10 Things You’re Grateful For

When you think about positive things, it prepares your mind for forward movement.  It’s motivational and will help you stay focused on where you want to go and why.

#3 – Thoughts and Feelings

Go through how you are feeling and what you are thinking.  Emotionally, Mentally, Spiritually, Physically, at Work or School and in your Relationships.

#4 – Describe – What do you want in life?

You won’t wind up where you want unless you know where you are going.

#5 – Results of Previous Goals.

What did you set out to do the day before?  Did you accomplish what you hoped to? Smiley face the goals you reached or put a small V! for victory beside each one.  Crossing things off the list doesn’t bring the same level of fulfillment as celebrating.

#6 – List 5 Goals for Today

Easy, simple and straight-forward. What are 5 things you can do today to move you toward what you want.

#7 – Today

What are today’s experiences?

#8 – Did you experience any Dreams, Meditation Moments or Prayerful insights?

This is a question to apply to spiritual life.  If you aren’t practicing anything or don’t remember your dreams, that’s okay.

#9 – Upcoming Goals

These are a list of things you can do in the future.  I refer to it as my “Parking Lot” – I can always check out a spot when I’d like to or when the season is right.

Bonus Trick – Be sure to journal at least a little, every-single-day.  Keep that transformation headed in the right direction.

5 Inexpensive Travel Locations That Will Rejuvenate Your Soul and a Video

During a particularly difficult time at work, working too many hours, too many days in a row – I felt like I was splintered inside. I was miserable and unhappy.  My well was empty and I couldn’t seem to figure out how to fill it.

Driving down the road, I saw a sign for a psychic.  I’d had some positive experiences with psychic’s in the past and was so desperate for help, I was happy to pull in and pay the $25 fee for a palm reading.

The psychic was young and beautiful.  We sat at a small table in dim lighting.  Incense were lit and wafted calming scents into the air.

I looked at her expectantly.  The psychic shook her head.

“I cannot read you,” She said.  “You are all gray.  I see nothing but a gray cloud around you.”

I left the small room and in the incense, realizing that I needed to discover the answers for myself.  When I wrote, Finding Yourself in a Suitcase, several of those discoveries were revealed.  Traveling was a huge part of rejuvenating my soul.  Here I have shared some of my favorite places.  Some are included in the book but some are shared here – secret gems, shared for the first time.

Sometimes the only way to reconstruct our life is to first allow yourself to fall apart so you can reassemble the pieces.

We don’t allow ourselves to break down.  By holding back, we are twisted into an unrecognizable self we pretend to know.

The Solution: Plan an escape to let go.

Sometimes the journey comes out of nowhere.  When it rings true, your heart will sing and you will know the correct door to walk through.

Get in touch with you.  Focus on one beautiful feeling at a time.  Stretching.  Pen on paper.  Cold water in times of thirst.  Hugs.  Gratitude.  A smile.

You Can Plan a Trip To Change Your Life – and if you are struggling in this area. Let Me Know.

How to Travel for Practically Free

The United States is far and wide.  Each state seems to have something to offer.  Are you one of those people who would enjoy experiencing those peaks and valleys?

Here is how people are doing it without an income:

If you’ve been to a Walmart or busy intersection lately, you’ll notice there are people with signs, asking for donations.  People can make more money in a day standing on the corner than a week being paid minimum wage.  Additionally, they have time freedom.

They stay the night at Walmart with their RV and grab essentials as they are needed. Save the money for gas and it’s on to the next town.

I call it The Walmart Business Plan.

Just because you’re broke no longer means you don’t get to see this beautiful country we live in.

If you make a go of it, let me know how it goes.  And don’t worry, I won’t judge.

An Inspiring Video before we part ways…

If you’ve ever had an itch to rent a car for a few weeks and drive across the United States… you are going to enjoy this video as much as I did.

It makes me want to grab that goal and live it right now.
