Communication: Journal Prompt 2 – Resolutions

Journal Prompt 2
Create a list of resolutions you would like to keep over the next 365 days. Write as many as you can. Now circle the 3 that mean the most to you and for each one, make a promise to your journal:

I promise to (blank). I want to do this because achieving this would mean (blank). My reward will be (blank).

I promise to (blank). I want to do this because achieving this would mean (blank). My reward will be (blank).

I promise to (blank). I want to do this because achieving this would mean (blank). My reward will be (blank).

I am fully aware that at times I will break my resolutions but instead of throwing in the towel and quitting, I will quickly get back on track without feeling any sense of guilt or failure.

Signed ———-

I promise to go to bed and turn off all screens before midnight.  I want to do this because achieving this would mean I am taking control of my sleeping habits and the amount of information (good or bad) that I let enter my mind.  My reward will be a rested mind and body, which is what I need to continue this life in the right direction.

I promise to cook at home more than I currently do, which is not often at all.  Baking does not count.  It is very convenient to stop by a restaurant and pick up an order when they make the meal right and I don’t.  But how can I get any better at it if I don’t practice it?  I want to do this because achieving this would mean I am controlling my eating habits and I am saving money for more satisfying things, like traveling.

I promise to save and plan for at least one solo international trip per year.  I want to do this because achieving this would mean I am not allowing myself to ever get stuck within my own four walls and jaded about the world.  My reward will be everything that you gain when you travel solo, which will be another post for another day.

I am fully aware that at times I will break my resolutions but instead of throwing in the towel and quitting, I will quickly get back on track without feeling any sense of guilt or failure.

Signed,

The Journaler
