Why Journal

There are many ideologies about manifesting your destiny, the life you are meant to live.

  1.  Begin each day with affirmations and/or inspiring quotes. Affirmations help direct you away from the negative thoughts and guide your consciousness toward positive self-actualization.   You are affirming to yourself that you are capable and worthy of meeting your goals.  You are building confidence in yourself.  Keeping your affirmations and an inspiring quotes from others in mind helps you avoid self-sabotaging behaviors.  Use affirmations and inspiring quotes for a positive mindset.  Your body and the universe around you can feel your thoughts, and they both react to them.  Negative thought stimulates negative responses.  Likewise, positive thought produces produces positive responses.
  2.  Record your plan as well as your daily gratitude.  Actually writing down your, in detail, your dreams, aspirations, and goals helps you focus on them and bring them into fruition.  Writing them down makes them “real” and increases the odds that you will achieve them.  As you consider the future, it is also import that you express gratitude for the present.  Be thankful for where you are and what you currently possess.  Being grateful in the present gives you a positive outlook and helps calm stresses.  Expressing gratitude builds positive energy.
  3. Calm and focus your thoughts through coloring activities. Coloring can be therapeutic.  Coloring relieves stress by acting as a relaxation tool.  Use this tool to steer your mind away from intrusive negative self-talk.  Coloring can also help to focus your thoughts.  It strengthens concentration.  Both the right and left brain hemispheres are used while coloring.  Creativity (right brain) is used as you make color and shading choices, use fine motor skills, and your imagination.  Problem solving (left brain) comes into play as you analyze your choices, organize materials and colors, and problem-solve as needed.  With a clear and calm mind, achieved by coloring, you can focus on the important things that will enable you to reach your destiny.  And coloring is fun!

What Do I Do Well

A sweet children’s book

I was asked to review this book, What Do I Do Well? and I’m so happy I got a chance to read it!  This book is just absolutely wonderful.

It begins with a young girl’s excitement and worries about starting a new year at school.  She talks about missing her best friend from the previous year and hoping she will be in the same class.  The first assignment is to draw a picture of what the student does well.  She thinks about all the things she does well and comes to a very sweet and wonderful conclusion.

I enjoyed reading this book because it has a lovely story and beautiful illustrations.  As a mom, it was very heartwarming to read a story that ends with a child realizing the greatest thing she can do is give love and to care for someone else.  This is a fantastic story to read to or with an older sibling.

What Babies Do

2000px-5_stars.svg Amazon review:

“This munchkin’s book is the perfect tool to help younger munchkin’s learn that a baby brother or sister is not a bad thing, or a thing to fear. I really wish that my own nephews would have had this when their younger siblings were born, because it would have made things so much easier on a level they would understand and enjoy. I also love the illustration, as it really helps pull you into the story along with your munchkins. I would really recommend this to all those with tinys who have another tiny on the way!”

Books about birth

Parents have struggled with how to approach the question of childbirth for a very long time.  Here are two books that may help you tackle the question, “Where Do Babies Come From”.   Both books take a science based approach to the question, simply explaining that babies come from eggs.  Real-life photographs add to the interest and authenticity of the book.
