Journal Notes

Feeling Overwhelmed and Discouraged

I can’t change what I did or didn’t get done yesterday. I can’t change yesterday, but I can start today fresh and new. I can try again.

Get up. Start fresh. Leave the past in the past. Move on better than before.

Inspired Thinking

  • I can start fresh today.
  • I can begin to live the life I desire today.
  • I am free to love life today, to do my best, and to have fun.
  • I am free to be grateful and joyful.
  • I leave the worry, the overwhelm, and the frustration behind.
  • I choose to start fresh and move forward now.

Have courage.

“Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.” – Mary Anne Radmacher

Your Encouragement Journal

Create an encouragement journal for yourself. Journals are a great place for creating positive affirmations, writing down quotes or scriptures you love, and recording happy times. Then on the not so good days, you can read your journal to receive encouragement and motivation. Journals can also be a safe place to express yourself and accept your feelings. Loving and accepting yourself is a powerful way to bring joy back into your life when you’re feeling down.
