Try This



Try this.  

Set aside a time when you can be alone for an hour with your journal. Choose a relaxing place and an unhurried, leisurely time of the day. Make sure there will be no interruptions. It’s just you and your journal.

Now, answer the following questions:

1.“What is important to you in life?” Write for 10 minutes straight. Write whatever is floating around in your mind. Don’t edit your thoughts or writing. Write as if no-one but you will read it. Be completely honest with yourself.

2. “What are your big dreams?” Write for 10 minutes straight. Write whatever is floating around in your mind. Don’t edit your thoughts or writing. Write as if no-one but you will read it. Be completely honest with yourself.

3. “What do you want from an intimate relationship?” Write for 10 minutes straight. Write whatever is floating around in your mind. Don’t edit your thoughts or writing. Write as if no-one but you will read it. Be completely honest with yourself.

4. “Where do you want to go with this relationship?” (Your relationship with your partner or spouse.) Write for 10 minutes straight. Write whatever is floating around in your mind. Don’t edit your thoughts or writing. Write as if no-one but you will read it. Be completely honest with yourself.

Most of us aren’t aware of, and may never have articulated, our deepest hopes and dreams. They are often just below conscious awareness, on the periphery of our mind. This means we can’t take them seriously.

Now is the time to take them seriously.

Reread what you have written in your journal.

What have you learned about yourself?

What changes do you want to make?

What small change are you going to make first, and by what date?

Trust your intuition.

Take that first step.
