I recently blogged about journaling, and other ways to shift your mood. But the reality is that it can be helpful in many other ways too!
It has never come easily or naturally to me, but I have made more of an effort to journal over the last couple of years. Notes like this make me so happy that I did!
In 2016 I followed Mike Dooley's 30 Day Project for the month of January. I worked through daily prompts, and journaled about what I wanted for my life.
When I wrote this January 2016, North Shore Acupuncture & Wellness didn't exist. I didn't know how to run a business, didn't have a website or an office space, and overall had no clue what I was getting myself into. I continued working my two jobs, and started taking steps to make this a reality.
While this prediction was surprisingly accurate, it didn't take into account all of the help and support that I received behind the scenes. Talented friends created stunning photographs; these photos beautified my new website made by my extraordinarily patient sister (who took my endless nit-picking edits like a champ); family and colleagues provided advice and support about running a business; and to this day, night after night, my husband still listens to me complain/vent, celebrate, question, and process the daily ups and downs of running a business.
Thank you all for making this dream a reality!
Now I invite YOU to celebrate with me! I'm not only celebrating the three year anniversary of opening my dream business, and but also celebrating the move into my dream office space (and wouldn't you know it, I journaled about that, too!).
You will now be able to find me at 65 Newburyport Turnpike, Newbury MA 01951.
