Day 32 — How I Write My Own Reality
This is a LIVE case study where I am documenting my journey to becoming a highly paid marketing consultant by blogging everyday for 50 consecutive days. It’s called “50 Days to Freedom: My Journey to 5 Figures in 50 Days“. At the end of the post, you will find links to all the previous posts.
I am a HUGE fan of journaling.
It is so powerful, so therapeutic for me.
I do it EVERY morning, before I touch my phone.
No email, Facebook, or Candy Crush until my journaling is complete.
I start out with writing down 2 things that I am grateful for, followed by 20–25 intentions/affirmations, then I write out my goals 5x, and then I do a brain dump. I just unload on paper what is going on in this crazy head of mine.
The intentions I write, a lot of them are I am statements. I act as if they are already done, already compete.
Some examples of the daily intentions I write are…
I helped 8 Dads quit their jobs last week
I love donating 10% of my income to charities I believe in
I drive a white Tesla
I am happy & healthy
I journal from my backyard every morning — love writing out side
The kids & I vacation 4x per year
That last one, I am putting into practice today.
All this work I do, writing blog posts on Saturday night at 10:30, is for them.
I do it for the freedom.
I do it to be present in their everyday lives.
I never wanted to work for someone where I earn 2 weeks of vacation a year. I wanted to be able to attend their school functions, sports practices, pick them up from school, putting them on the bus, etc.
And taking them on a vacation, multiple times a year, is a non-negotiable for me.
My parents took Annie (my younger sister) and I on a family vacation every year. Memories I will never forget, and I want to do the same for Ava & Ashton.
Today, we go to the beach.
The first time for them.
Here is a our sweet babygirl, Ava, in the car, rockin’ Daddy’s new hat….
This is vacation number 2 for them this year.
Not sure what we’ll do for vacations #3 or #4, but know we will be traveling somewhere to create memories, that’ll last a lifetime, whether they remember them or not.
