Wow, I have really been going through the journals this Summer! As I shared in a previous post (“4 Helpful Tips for Looking for a New Doctor”), I have been dealing with some health issues, and when I don’t feel well physically, the combination of being an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) and feeling sick makes me more prone to feeling overwhelmed. So during those times, I pull even further inside, and I don’t connect much with friends… Thus, I write a lot more in my journal during those times!
Can you relate to this? What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?
How was the month of July for you? Did you write anything down in a journal or calendar?
Yesterday I reviewed my journal and calendar for the month of July, and here are a few highlights ~
~ My mantra was “Calm Down & Happy Up.”
~ Lots of very happy days: feeling happier and happier in my new nun chapter!
~ Thunderstorms and fireworks.
~ Feeling really in alignment with purpose.
~ Realization: My main job is to be happy.
~ I really LOVE blogging… I keep hearing that quote, “Do what you love, and the money will follow.” (Marsha Sinetar) And, my Mom said, “Consider yourself a writer. Period.”
~ Realization: I am really fringe!
~ Super grateful for donations to my work!
~ Enjoying birdsong and bugsong.
~ Put a Sun on it, sunshine girl.
~ Full of happy!
~ Praying for inner peace. One day at a time. Do what I can each day.
So… Now I am looking ahead to this brand new month of August, and here are my keywords: Humility, Patience, and Peace. As I continue blogging and making visits with dying hospice patients, I pray to be humble, patient, and peaceful.
And, once I approve the proofing copy of my new book (arriving in the mail today!), I will enjoy promoting the book (Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life) and leading healing circles, while feeling humble, patient, and peaceful. I will really enjoy the work, while feeling Happy, Happy, Happy!!!
What are your goals for August? What are your keywords and intentions?
I hope you enjoyed this post.
Happy August to you! 🙂
