Great post Jodie. This is very topical for me at the moment as I am having a major life overhaul due to illness and reassessing my priorities. I have just started a Gratitude journal where every day I have to write 3 things I was grateful for that day. It’s actually very easy once you get started. Also, I have done a reverse bucket list – a list of fabulous things that I have done. This is great to look at when you are feeling a bit down or stagnant. Goals are and dreams are incredibly important for the soul – even silly ones like ‘to marry Johnny Depp’ are fun to have on the list – even just for a giggle.
This looks really interesting and I am keen to participate in this program down the track. I have been plodding along with bits and pieces for ages and have not treated writing as a ‘career’. Saying you’re a writer somehow seems to invoke a fair bit of eye-rolling and a belief that you sit and watch daytime TV every day. I am in the middle of an organisational frenzy so finding this blog couldn’t have come at a better time! Looking forward to seeing more of these ideas.
