    Financial Freedom Journaling Challenge Review

    Billie Wade

    Ask anyone what financial freedom means and you will receive as many different answers as there are people. But, while the definition is unique to everyone, there are some commonalities in perceptions and in ways to approach that lofty ideal. Financial Freedom Journaling Challenge lives up to its name. Do not let the word “challenge” scare you off. You got this.

    Facing financial problems can be a daunting and time-intensive task of sorting and creating new, healthy behaviors to replace behaviors that do not serve your financial goals. You see, financial freedom is not just about money but about your relationship with money.

    Self-Empowerment Journaling Challenge: Becoming Your Own Greatest Supporter and Advocate

    Kay Butzin

    September 17: Build yourself up instead of tearing yourself down

    I’ve been feeling at a loss concerning my writing. It takes other-imposed goals to get me to do something purposeful, which was the reason for my purchase of this course—for motivation. Focus on my limitations and on what I don’t know rather than do keeps the pen silent. My ideas seem too old to appeal to today’s youth-oriented market.

    To do instead:

    Bash Sarmiento

    It's no secret that money can be a major source of stress in a person's life. But did you know that it can also have a significant impact on your mental health? According to a recent study, an estimated 32% of Americans say that their financial situation is their top stressor, causing them anxiety or depression. But in fact, the relationship between stress and financial security is also a vicious cycle: financial insecurity can lead to mental health issues, which in turn can make it difficult to manage money.

    Martin Thielen

    This article originally ran October 28, 2022 on the Spirituality & Health site 

    Feel relaxed and connected after spending time writing down your thoughts and feelings? You have unknowingly tapped into the spiritual benefits of journaling.

    In the back closet of my house stands a large filing cabinet. Inside the cabinet are nearly five decades of journals, going all the way back to my senior year in high school. Those journal entries, along with our family photos, are my most valued possessions.

    Spiritual Matters: Journaling in the Biggest Big Book

    Marie Higgins

    I’ve learned that the manual for Alcoholics Anonymous is known as the “Big Book,” and I understand one of the reasons why: it has helped millions arrive at and live in recovery. That’s pretty impressive! 

    Equally so, there’s another definition I’ve heard for the term “Big Book,” and this Big Book also helps extraordinary numbers of people; specifically, this Big Book refers to nature and the tremendous impact on providing us with wonder, information, and healing. 

    Whether you have or haven’t heard of this before, this label probably is not very surprising. Afterall, it is very difficult to come up with something as majestic and awe-producing as what happens in nature, like these examples: the seasons; the changes in a woman’s or an animal’s body, or even a male seahorse, to enable a birth of another; plants, like fruit-producing ones, begin from a seed, growing into a venous structure that transports water and nutrients, grows stems and leaves and flowers, and sometimes needs another plant or animal to produce and reproduce, and sometimes doesn’t; and so on and so on.

    How to Self-Motivate

    Melanie Faith

    There are days when writing has momentum and flow, and it feels like riding a speedy bike with nary a hill in sight. Many other days, of course, are the opposite, and that bike has a wobbly (or entirely flat) tire. Let’s delve into some surefire ways to get self-motivation zooming again.


    Write first, scroll later.

    Save a social-media scroll for after you’ve clocked in words on your project. Perusing social media first is like allowing radio static from several stations to rush in and brain-scramble at once. Writing takes a lot of focus and clarity to tune into thoughts, but if we’re filled to the brim with what everyone else is saying or doing, it’s profoundly challenging to have the space and concentration needed for our own work.
