You don’t need to be a “writer” to use this Positive Affirmations Journal. It’s a fun way to dig up all those negative thoughts and replace them with a positive mindset!
It’s not hard to find ready-made affirmations you can use. Lots of websites and books provide lists of statements, and here at Make A Vision Board we’re no exception. To see everything offered on this site check out our Affirmations Category.
Sometimes you get lucky and find an affirmation that suits you perfectly. Too bad it isn’t always that easy!
The problem is that many times the words seem exactly right, but they don’t resonate with you for one reason or another. One goal of this site is to provide you with helpful resources, but an exhaustive search of websites, books, and journals left me more than a little disappointed.
All of the sources I found provide good, basic lists of affirmations. That’s a good starting place, but to be most effective, an affirmation has to be about more than what you say or how it’s worded.
Whether you’re creating a dream board or composing vision board affirmations, it’s important to spend some time really getting in touch with yourself.
Affirmations are about your thoughts, but they’re also very much about your feelings.
Many times we have a good idea about what we want, yet we don’t have an emotional attachment to our desires because we haven’t asked the big question, WHY?
Since I couldn’t find a resource that provides that kind of help, I decided to create one myself. It’s a journal – but wait!
Don’t dismiss it because you think you aren’t much of a writer. That does not matter, and here’s why.
First of all, it’s like a personal diary, and no one will be grading you on spelling, punctuation, and grammar. If you don’t want to share your personal thoughts, no one ever needs to see what you write but you.
What it DOES do is…
- inspire you to really dig into all those thoughts roaming around in your head
- lead you to discover more about yourself and what you really want
- help you get a much clearer mental picture of what you’re trying to accomplish with your vision board and your positive affirmations.
It’s also designed to make your discovery process enjoyable. As you journey through your mind you’ll be encouraged and inspired to give serious thought to some topics and have crazy fun with others.
