Time Alone.

As I reflect on the year 2011, I can sum it up in one word 'gratitude'. At the beginning of the year I made it my goal to keep a gratitude journal as some of you may remember and it has taught me so much. Now as I open a new journal to ready myself for 2012, I will be keeping a dream journal this year. but I have feeling I will be still recording how thankful I am to God for all he has done {and will continue to do} in my life thus far. 

So for today and tomorrow I'll be tucking myself away from hubby and the kids to journal goals, plans, prayers, and dreams. I have been doing this for sometime now so making this time happen is key for me. Here are a few ideas for journalling in the coming year.

You can write a lot about the dreams that you remember you had in the past, be it good or bad. A good idea is to try and relate such dreams to your real life.

Thanking God:
Thank God for whatever he has given you and for keeping you and your family safe. You can even note down a personalized prayer that you have made. Also record what you are learning from the Bible day to day as inspiration.

Future Goals:
Jot down your future goals and also mention the steps as to how you are planning to achieve them. The goals can be academic, personal, or even professional.

Learning from Mistakes:
Include in your scrapbook or blog the mistakes you had made in the past which are affecting you even at present. Mention what you learned from those mistakes.

Overcoming Fears and Building Confidence:
It is fine if you even mention what you fear most in life. Think of the steps that you would take to build your self-confidence and overcome the fears.

Composing a Song: Think about the lyrics, give a tune, and compose a song. You will really feel good about yourself that you have expressed your feeling in the form of a song.

Best and Worst Moments in Life: Everyone has his best and worst moments in life. You can include the best moment that you will always want to relive and the worst moment that you wished never had come in your life.

All about your Favorites: You can write all about your favorites which include cuisine, superhero, musician, hobby, and any other thing that you like the most.

Places You Like the Most: You can mention places that you like to go to very often, and even about locations that you would like to visit in the future.

Quotes: To keep you motivated, you can note down some very inspirational quotes by successful people.

Skills to Develop: You can include the skills and capabilities that you would like to have, such as playing the guitar, managing people, handling bad situations in life, and several others.

These are just a few ideas but you can write about whatever is on your heart.

Love to All.
