Smile I've got a project for you guys! - July 28th 2012, 12:42 AM

I want you guys to try something with me.

Buy a new journal and make it your "Positive thoughts" Journal. Negativity will have no place in this book. Just positive thoughts. And I also want you to jot down something new you've begun to like about yourself. And do this every day.

I'm trying this as well. I just purchased a new journal and I have successfully begun my positive thoughts writing. I obtain my positive thoughts from Brett, http://www.staypositive.me/ and quotes from my favorite band. So you can use anyone's words of wisdom.

^_^ Anyways, I hope you guys will do this with me.

Stay strong all. <3



So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."


What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?

Thanks for sharing this. I do something similar to this already. I have what I call my 'happy box' in which I place items which hold significance to me. I have a few photos, a signed book from people at school and some other things, and when I'm upset I look in the box, read over some of the messages my friends and other wrote on the last day of school, and I find it helps me. So this is a great idea. It helps you focus on the positive, which is just what we need sometimes!

I hope this helps you, and of course, that it helps others.

Thanks for sharing this Kayla. I already what Hollie does; keep a happy box (first aid box) full of letters, and things that help me etc. I'll be sure to give this a go to!

Thanks for sharing this! It's such a good idea and I've heard about it in the past and just not done it, but I think I might give it a go sometime soon. Going into town tomorrow so hopefully can buy myself a notebook. Thank you, I hope you are okay.

This is such a great idea Kayla! I have problems staying positive..and I really need to be so I can get better, so I think I will try this!
Thank you so much for sharing, you are too wonderful!

I looooooooooooooooovvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the idea! I have done this with my blog but recently abandoned it . I would love to start again in writing . Where do you buy journals anyway? Everywhere I look, whenever I want to buy a diary, it is one of those ones with the dates and the times in it.


“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place,
But believe that there is much more good in it than bad.
All you have to do is look hard enough,
And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

Thanks, Paula.
I hope everything goes well!

And Oneirophobia, Just a dollar store. That's where I got mine. I was lucky to find mine, it has a butterfly on each page (you know, the butterfly project?) So that was cool. And it also has a positive quote on the front of it. I got mine at a Dollar General Store. :P

I have something similar.
An accomplishment log. I write down when I accomplish things and then looking at all of the things I have accomplished helps me.
I think I will take this idea and write a positives log too. I've tried to write positives about myself but it is challenging.
Thanks.

I love this idea! Thanks so much for sharing it. Guess who's gonna go buy a journal tomorrow? This girl! I might also try Hollie's happy box.
