Today's blog is more of a vlog :-)
I wanted to talk to you about my Passion Pulse and why my Passion Pulse and my daily journal are such a foundational part of my life.
They're actually the bedrock that a large portion of my happy life and my sobriety are built upon. They are essential tools in my sobriety arsenal.
These tools are about keeping my life in order.
When I first got into recovery, my life was completely out of order and it was suggested to me that I write a daily inventory.
I'd kept diaries for most of my life--so the idea instantly appealed to me. (Thank goodness!)
After a little while and being the perfectionist that I am, I decided to create my own written inventory system and my Passion Pulse was born. It's a way for me to combine a number of tools:
- My diary
- My gratitude list when I'm feeling down and need to remind myself how wonderful my life is; and
- My to do list.
These simple pages keep my life in order and keep me moving in an orderly direction -- which is something that I'm not generally wired to do.
Watch the video and take a peek over my shoulder and see how I deal with my day.
I want you to know that I do walk my own talk.
My Passion Pulse is not something I'm suggesting you should do because I think it's a good idea for you. This is something that I've been doing for many years. It's something that I've wanted to share with other people for a long time because I believe it can help anyone live and orderly life and help them achieve the dream life that they deserve.
You don't actually have to be an addict or an alcoholic to benefit from these pages. One of my students wrote to me recently and said that she always made her bed and she's never had a drinking problem, but the pages have helped her to reconnect with herself .
I thought that was pretty special.
Yours in love & gratitude,
