1. Opening: Mindful Moment
"What a comfort is this journal. I tell myself to myself and throw the burden on my book and feel relieved." –Anne Lister
Enlightenment is found in your daily life. Writing in a journal can serve as your meditation. It can be as simple as collecting your favorite quotes and writing them over as a reminder to yourself. When you are mindful, you stay in the present and less in the anxious state.
Think of a moment where you felt fully engaged, when you felt strong, clear in your mind, connected to your intuition, think of where you were, how did it feel, what were you doing? What were you feeling? That’s your state of excellence. Bring that feeling to something that you want to embark on! Describe what it feels like to be on the other end of having accomplished a task. How would it feel to tap into your state of excellence and imagine completing a task or goal that is currently on your list?
3. Reflection or Challenge

“Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can” –Douglas Pagels
