I’ve always loved the idea of journaling (perhaps this is the attraction of blogging?). However, I never could maintain the habit and I relate that to feeling that I would only use it for venting purposes and it really brought me more negative than positive energy. Enter the Contentment Journal.
We are big Dave Ramsey-plan-fans and I have since been obsessed with his daughter’s, Rachel Cruze, books and podcasts (seriously check them out). Overall, she just is a great person to relate to if you are in the season of life of children and needing work-to-life balance.
Rachel recently came out with a Contentment Journal that I have been enjoying thoroughly. It is a 90-day journal that provides prompts regarding family/relationships, money, work, and other self-reflections. It overall helps you focus on the life you have and less on what others around you (she also has a book on this- “Love Your Life, Not Theirs”).
The prompts has made journaling so much more enjoyable and it has been a great conversation starter for my husband and I to dive into. I have looked forward to bed time every night for the prompt-of-the-day. If you are looking into journaling and overall self-improvement (who doesn’t want that?!) then I definitely recommend Rachel Cruze’s Contentment Journal. Enjoy!
