Sometimes we feel so lost, so worthless, don’t we?
Well, this happens to me a lot.
I’ve been finding different ways to be more focused and productive but no matter how hard I try, my soul never gets satisfied. I like to observe people and with my plenty of observations, one thing I can definitely say that
People who complain a lot always have something to complain about and that’s the kind of person I was becoming.
They say talk to someone when you feel lost or don’t feel good or when things go wrong and a lot of other things that they say.
I tried communicating with people, my friends, family but I had a blind spot on why things were happening the way they were happening.
Just to know, I am maintaining diaries since I was in grade-8 in certain ways and I feel so real and alive whenever I write something in them.
I still remember those days of my college when I got a beautiful journal as a gift which later became a gratitude journal for me, very first actually.
It was something new but seemed weird initially to write about those things in particular for which I am grateful in my life because Come on! whether I write or not still I was and positive with the thought that I will be for the rest of my life. But knowing this still wanted to give it a try. By considering it as a therapy I started writing daily.
So when I started writing, honestly! I felt bored for some days but I had never quit and maintained it for an exact one month. No doubt, I felt good but being a little sluggish creature I skipped for a month or two maybe.
Yeah! I had a habit of writing journals but a gratitude journal was something else: new and different.
So after skipping for a few months I began to feel the same old way wherein actual I was missing my journal because I started liking it in some way and liking myself more.
It was a feeling of joy that made me feel so free so unconstrained just by putting down my words in it.
I started again and this time I realized that keeping this journal helping me in assorted ways. Truly!
It’s a habit now and it helps me to stay focus on what I have, not what I don’t have because, in reality, there will always be something that I won’t have.
No matter how much accomplished I am but the truth is that there’s always be someone who is accomplished more.
There will always be something that I want but by focusing my thoughts on what I have and not what I don’t have, I tend to train my mind to think more positively and to never filled up with negative thoughts.
And that’s what I am trying to do now, wholeheartedly and journaling helps me in this process.
Happy with the fact that at least I am consistent in something.
PS: Be happy about what you have and you’ll end up with more things to be happy about.
