Revising the Vision:

Aside from using your journal to create, commit and review your goals, you can also use writing process to revise resolutions that are no longer viable or important. Life changes daily and sometimes what we wanted in January is not what we want in June. With the support of your writing practice you may actually find yourself achieving more and more quickly! Whatever happens, the journal is always available and never judges. You can write about your concerns, test your feelings about giving up and letting go of a resolution. As you become more comfortable with writing practice you will naturally find new ways to dialogue with your fears as well as your desires. In fact, science has proven that writing about events that are troubling to you will actually boost your immune system and provide positive input on how to proceed. Whatever question you have for yourself can be answered in your journal. Nothing is too small or too big to fit into your notebook.

Prompts for revising resolutions and goals:

  •  I no longer want to . . .
  • I am willing to let go of . . .
  • What’s important to me now is . . .
  • I thought I wanted (name goal) but really I . . .
  • What will happen if I don’t do (name of goal)
  • Instead of doing (goal), I will . . .

Once you discover anew what you really want, you can begin again to set new goals and define the next best steps  to achieve them.  There are no mistakes in life, there is only learning….and the quickest way to unhappiness and dis-ease is to continue on a pathway that you know isn’t right for you.

Give yourself permission to create a new vision for the future.
