If you want to see the change

Write it down

This is a blogging website. This is a writing platform. That’s what people do here is write. We write about everything from our feelings and thoughts to our lessons learned. Writing is a release for many, I know that’s the case for me.

What I have realized this year is that writing something down is extremely powerful. I have this little blue notebook that I have had for a while, I’m not sure how long exactly. It has moved almost 6 times with me and was chewed on by one of my dogs. I recently looked through this entire notebook start on the first page just to see some of the random thoughts I have jotted down in it.

I use it for everything, I carry it in my purse, it has dreams/goals, something I saw on a billboard driving that caught my attention. Important numbers to call, doctors appts literally everything!

What I noticed was that the very first page has aspirations written down. Almost like affirmations. I will this…I will that…

What is truly crazy is that these aspirations were so detailed and catered to my current situation that they actually all came true. So I continued to look throughout the pages and found that a lot of the other things I wrote down came true also and I know that this sounds so freaking simple but I’m not lying. Write it down multiple times, vision your life with that piece already. imagine yourself in the future in that situation or with that thing. Put yourself there and imagine it over and over and over again.

All my life I have kept a journal/diary of some sorts and I think that has a lot to do with my lack of communication skills (I’m actively working on). But it is the thing that works for me. Let's not forget that you have to put in the work to get to where you want to be. So you can also write down the steps that will help you reach that level.

So at the end of the day when I really truly want something, I write it down, think about it, feel it. Meditate on it, whatever you want. There is some sayings out there that say if you want to be the boss act like you already are or something along those lines, same message applies here. Try it!
