Days rush by in a flash. Things "to do" get rolled over to tomorrow or the 12th of never! You simply can't imagine getting round to starting a journal or really know why you should! You have friends, family, a job, pets, jobs to get done get the house, social time to fit in somewhere, the gym. Not to mention partners, time scrolling social media, that book you definitely want to read and the face mask you brought 5 months ago! Time is precious.
You want to start but you just don't know where or how or what works. What is a journal anyway? Can't I just makes notes in a blank book? (note to self when deciding on that one:- yes if you pick up that blank pad daily and do something every day in it that becomes productive. If not don't worry I have got your back - this journal is short & sweet daily with prompts to make life easier for you but also to get you more disciplined in seeing things through!) Brace yourself.
Hands up to everyone starting a million and one things.......and finishing about 5 of them! This was me. I needed a plan. A plan with a time-frame. Oh - as a bonus the daily short rituals make you feel better. Winning.
Everyone else is getting your time and attention and you will most definitely get to you ONE DAY. Tomorrow never comes they say, quite often neither does one day unless one day is today, then you are here! Team you!
I've just turned 40. I totally don't feel 40. Anyway, it gave me this overwhelming feeling running up to my birthday that I don't want to be turning 60 and STILL not have done want I really want. I have been "meaning to get around to" way too many things and saying "didn't this year fly by?", having changed NOTHING yet again.
I realised I was giving way too many shits about what people would think of me. What they would be saying about me if I fail? I realised I cared more about what "they" thought than I did about me living a life that I might just love.
So I started spending a bit of time each day on ME. The mind is a tricky thing. Working on it every day takes patience. It takes doing things that seem to make no difference whatsoever day after day after day. Meditation. Gratitude. These practices are the ones people give up on after a week generally. "It hasn't worked or I can't do it" are muttered. The thing is, you can do it. You just have to be prepared to do it with no seeming results on day 1 or day 20. Change will come. There is no set time period and that is why people give up. When you work on your body and can finally see difference you have an AHA moment. With the mind you won't necessary SEE anything. Give it time and you will start to feel different.
I started to remember what it was I had dreamt of doing in life. I stopped comparing myself to everyone else and people pleasing (I'm a massive people pleasure by default).
I realised I had gotten a little bit lost and was running a really negative story about myself through my head every single day. Comparing my life to some outdated fairytale. I was a shopaholic. I overspent my entire adult life leading to debt, trying to buy anything and everything but being totally out of control. Realising all this "stuff" wasn't making things any better I started to be mindful even in shopping. Turns out you can buy way less and having loads of clothes with tags on is not as cool as you think!
Once I accepted I COULD change that story if I stopped worrying. I started doing. Doing leads to change, it's as simple as that. You can do more than you think you can, once you change your thoughts. That's the hard bit!
I thought Journals were for hippy types or yoga people who can stand on their head. Turns out I was wrong. They are for anyone wanting to give themselves a chance to change.
I am MORE than excited that other people are using the Journal to do the same for themselves. So THANK YOU. I hope it helps you spend time each day on YOU.
WARNING! Completing a journal daily will not give an instant change. It will take time. Some longer than others. If you don't fill it in after the initial thrill of getting it, then nothing will change! That I can promise you.
Feel free to contact me. I also love talking! I love hearing the Journal has given you your mojo back and how life is changing for you. So don't be a stranger!
As this is still a very new side venture for me based on my desire to chase my dreams, I wanted to pass some love on. Mostly to those who need a bit of help to go chase their dreams!
£1.00 from every journal sold will be donated to charity each month. Instagram and Facebook will be updated at the end of each month to confirm the charity.
I'm massively saddened by homelessness and the complete feeling of being unworthy that I have found most homeless people feel. I see more and more people on the streets, young and old. I really am racking my brains for innovative ideas to help, until then, I will always be adding them into the donation pot each year.

I received my beautifully packaged journal, and was delighted with how fab it looked... before I even opened it! Inside was like reading something I'd written, a really honest, witty and constructive account of the authors motivation for creating the journal. In many ways it was really emotional to read, but also a complete relief that someone else feels the same way but also responds in the same way to those feelings. It's not a book which is preaching how, it's just reminding the reader that they have it in their gift to improve. And mostly it's really only acceptance of you and focussing on you. Definitely would recommend.
