I had an epiphany.
There is power in writing it down. Now you may be thinking that’s not an epiphany, you literally just talked about that like three posts ago. But the amazing thing about concepts and the brain is that it’s always making new connections to what we already know. I guess that ultimately deepens our understanding of what we think we know.
So my epiphany (to what I already knew) is that writing down thoughts to process emotions and situations, journaling if you will, is just the tip of the iceberg when we are talking about processing our lives.
Writing down dreams and goals and ambitions and plans. Holy shit that’s powerful.
I think that might be how people take their dreams and make them a reality.
I feel like I have heard many a successful people talking about manifestation journals and having planners with their daily goals followed by their weekly goals followed by their monthly goals and so on and so forth.
I’ve heard them say this but it never struck me as anything to start practicing on my own, but I think they are onto something and here’s why I’m saying that: I wrote down, in a calendar, each day of yoga in this yoga journey and then I’ve been checking it off once I’ve completed the day’s practice.
To top that off, I wrote on the first line of the calendar, (like where it says monthly goal) I wrote in an actual goal.
I claimed it.
Even thought I had it in my head that I was going to do it. However, my head is spacey and my thoughts are fleeting.
Having it written down in front of me…
…staring at me…
…reminding me of the dedication I made for the plans I have….
Man, that’s something different entirely.
I have no idea what is going to happen in the next 25 days but it feels good to write down what I want to happen in the next 25 days.
I guess I’m sharing these rando and potentially jibberish-y thoughts to encourage you.
If there is something consuming your brain, something that you want to do, you can think about it all you want but I think that it will stay there.
As a thought or a daydream.
But when you write it down, that’s the beginning of bringing it to life. And I can’t hep but think that most of our day dreams are because we are hoping to manifest those dreams into our reality.
I think it’s worth a try.
