“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Miracles happen when you write things down, not just on your heart but in a daily diary.
That’s not just my opinion. The Royal College of Psychiatrists found that journaling – aka expressive writing – is therapeutic. It not only helps you make sense of your life, it can reduce stress, improve mood, give purpose to your days, and even cause you to heal faster.
There’s another reason that taking even five minutes a day to write down your reflections and intentions is a good investment in a quality life.
Did you see the movie “As Good as it Gets” with Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt?
Toward the end of the movie, they go out to dinner. As the meal winds down, she looks at him and says, “Pay me a compliment, Melvin.”
He says, “That’s a pretty dress.”
She says, “No, pay me a real compliment.”
He seems to understand their relationship hangs on his ability to say something more meaningful. He digs deep and comes up with “You make me want to be a better man.”
My hope is that the quotes and questions in the SOMEDAY is Not a Day in the Week journal make you want to be a better person.
My hope is its thought-provoking insights and prompts help you be more alert to – and appreciative of – what’s right in your world and that it is a written witness to your life.
Queen Elizabeth said, “Good memories are our second chance at happiness.”
I hope this journal is your second, third, fourth and many more chances at happiness.
At any given time, you can review what you’ve written and receive and revel in all you have to be grateful for.
The thing is, many of us DON’T reflect on our days. We’re too busy. We race through life, rushing to get things done, feeling constantly behind. At the end of life, we’ll look back and want it back.
Journally is an antidote to a crazy busy life. It’s a tanagible way to slow down long enough to imprint the important moments, the highlights, so they’re there waiting for us when we want to read them.
We self-published the SOMEDAY journal at the request of clients and readers. But since it didn’t come out at the same time as my St. Martin’s Press book, it hasn’t received the visibility it deserves.
We want to correct that. So, here’s our offer.
For the month of August, buy one SOMEDAY journal from us, get a second one free.
You can gift it to a friend or family member and share your insights as part of a weekly walk-talk or a weekend ritual.
Anne Dillard said, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
We believe in this journal. We believe it can help you spend your days more mindfully and meaningfully.
We’re doing our part to get it out in the world so it can make a positive difference for as many people as possible.
So, email my Business Manager Cheri Grimm at Cheri@IntrigueAgency.com or call my CA office at 805 528-4351. Place your order, pay with a credit card, and we’ll send you TWO Someday journals for $20 plus $6 shipping. Now, THAT’s a good deal😊
