    Self Matters: Stop Asking Permission To Be You

    Billie Wade

    What have you always wanted to do, but other people gave you a lot of reasons why the dream was impossible? They may have told you it was silly, too expensive, you were too old, it would take too long, etc. You may have decided they were right, and you were better off where you were. Your present situation was uncomfortable, or worse. But, you reasoned, you knew what to expect. Stepping into a new venture can be unnerving. It also can be exhilarating. Friends and family members often think they’re giving us good advice and saving us from the disappointment and shame of certain failure. And, yes, others are afraid we will grow beyond them and they can no longer relate to us. And, for others, it’s plain old envy. So, you put your dreams on a shelf with plans to take them down and dust them off “someday.” Then life happens, and you think it’s too late.

    Health Matters: Why Journaling Should Be Part of Your Morning Routine

    Stacy Fisher

    I love the stillness of the early morning. It’s quiet. It’s unhurried. And it gives me space to ease into my day.

    Each morning, I pour myself a strong cup of coffee and spend about an hour in my journal. First, I do a brain dump to release any nonsense that’s swirling in my head. Then, I jot down at least three things I’m grateful for to help shift my attention toward what’s going well in my life. And finally, I move on to writing about what I want to accomplish over the course of the day.

    Money Matters: What if You Can Only Save a Little?

    Michelle Cornish

    Saving money can be a frustrating process. I’ve been there. You manage to get a good lump sum saved, then your car craps out and you end up draining your savings and still having to put part of the repairs on your credit card. 

    It can feel really disheartening when this happens. It’s tempting to throw in the towel and give up on saving money altogether. But imagine if you hadn’t saved that lump sum. You’d owe even more money to the credit card company.

    Can a Simple Blank-Page Notebook Lead to Better Journaling

    Lori Wade

    If there's one thing every journal writer, college student, and professional novelist has in common, it's a fear of the blank page.

    The image of a cursor flashing on screen or the sight of an empty, blank sheet of paper has made many a writer stumble and choke. After all, the question of what, how, and where to begin a diary entry has been difficult since the very beginning of time.

    Carrie Rowan

    In 2020, we all find ourselves dealing with larger amounts of stress during these unprecedented times. Anger is at an all-time high and anxiety levels have skyrocketed as uncertainty takes us down a path of negativity that we never intended on traveling.

    It is so easy to get bogged down by the numbers that flash at us on our TV screens and internet sites constantly reminding us that we have little control over what is happening around us right now. So how do you stay clear minded and keep your mindset positive so you can be an inspiration to those who are looking for even the smallest glimmer of hope?

    7 Rewarding Ways How Bullet Journals Can Level Up Your Life

    Peter Clarke

    Bullet journaling is the next big thing. It is one effectively rewarding way to keep track of every single activity and goal you would pursue in life, with each passing day. The very idea behind bullet journaling is more of a go-to planner, which you can refer and abide by while going about your daily chores. To simplify, students are often seen to leverage the potential of academic tools such as spell checker, plagiarism checker and essay rewriter. Do you know why?
