Live Journaling Session 4 – I Will Not Think That My Day Is A Failure
For today’s live journaling session, I will journal to the following journaling affirmation for 15 minutes in my online journal here on AshleyYeo.com.
I Will Not Think That My Day Is A Failure
If you haven’t been following this series of 15-minute online journaling sessions, start reading from here to understand why I have selected 15 minutes for this series of journaling sessions.
Some days, things don’t go so well for me. Rather than proclaim such days as bad days, I have decided to recreate such “bad” days as good days for myself.
If something is not going well in my day, I will find a bit of time to give myself a perk me up. It could be any of the following perk me up activities:
- small piece of chocolate for my sweet tooth;
- drinking a hot soothing beverage;
- a mind-calming walk;
- messaging my friends to say hi;
- watching a bit of brainless tv;
- listening to my favorite songs; and
- tidying up my house and keeping things organized as I am an organization freak.
I will feel a sense of elation after a perk me up activity, and I will let that sense of high calm me as I dive back into my “bad” day.
If the day doesn’t realign itself for goodness and continues to be a “bad” day, I will go with the flow and see where it takes me.
I will troubleshoot and try to make a “bad” day better, but troubleshooting can only take me so far.
I prefer just to enjoy my small perk me up activities when I have time for a breather.
If I don’t have time for a breather, I will still try to squeeze in a tiny one by just closing my eyes for a minute and inhaling in and out slowly to release the tension from my body and mind. Closing my eyes helps soothe my nerves and think more clearly.
When I can’t think clearly, I will find myself falling into a spiral for the day. I need to gain composure to face a “bad” day.
After battling “bad” days this way for a while, my body tunes itself to fight “bad” days and will handle such days with greater confidence.
I will not find my bad days a failure. And I will not let the fear of bad things happening in a day dictate my feelings for that day.
I can still feel happy on a crappy day if I enjoy my perk me up activities.
I can feel joy if I close my eyes and calm myself down for 1 minute.
Self-Reflection On Today’s Live Journaling Session
I enjoyed today’s journaling session as I had a lot of fun writing down my perk me up activities and sharing them with you.
I had fun journaling today in my online blog. Just 15 minutes of journaling for my joyful state of mind, not too bad!
