If you’re serious about healing your broken heart, keep a widow’s journal. When you hear something valuable or inspiring write it down, don’t trust your memory. The best way to organize yourself is to write things down, because “widow fog” is real.
Journal writing is one of the greatest indications that you’re a serious student of life, creating your future and destiny. Knowledge will fuel action, but as always the key is to take that first step. Start listening to motivational speakers and write what you learn in your journal. Read inspiring books and get out of the house with positive people.
It’s a new day, a new beginning for your new life as a single person. Write it all down and you will be amazed at how much progress you have made in a year.
If you find that life is not to your liking then do something about it. Ask yourself, “Am I making the progress I want?” You be the judge!
We sometimes make it harder on ourselves then we need to. Everything you need for your future has already been written down by others and guess what – it’s all available for free at your local library, Google and YouTube. Write out what you want and believe that what you want is possible for you.
Be alert to the world around you, making new friends and experiences. Take time to write it all down in your widow’s journal. I understand that this isn’t your planned life and that you want your loved one back. But, what was your planned future is no more and after you’re grieving comes healing. Life has taken another path, but what kind of path is totally up to you.
