Creating Your Dream Life: A Journaling Guide for Moms

Allison Kleinman

Let's face it - being a mom is no joke! It's not uncommon for many moms to feel lost post-motherhood (myself included!), having to rediscover passions and interests all while keeping a tiny human alive. 

But I believe it's essential to find your purpose and create your dream life, not only for your own fulfillment but also for your children to see. That's why Bliss'd is here to help you discover your passions, strengths, and values with the power of journaling and self-care - after all, it's our mission is to help moms live more joyful, fulfilling and connected lives ❤️

So, grab a cup of coffee, take a deep breath, and let's dive in to find out how journaling and self-care can help you unlock your dream life.

Reflect on your passions and values

Take some time to think about what brings you joy and fulfillment. Reflect on the activities that you enjoy and the causes that you are passionate about. 

Consider what values are important to you and how you can live them out in your daily life. Write down your thoughts and feelings in a journal to help clarify your thoughts.

Identify your strengths and skills

Take an inventory of your skills and strengths. What are you good at? What do others compliment you on? Of these, what do you enjoy doing? How can you use your talents to make a difference in the world? By identifying your strengths, you can find ways to apply them to your passions and purpose.

Set goals and take action

Once you have identified your passions, values, strengths, and skills, set some goals for yourself. What steps can you take to live out your purpose and create your dream life? Write down your goals and create an action plan to achieve them. Don't be afraid to take small steps towards your goals, as even small progress can lead to big results.

Embrace self-care and self-compassion

As a mom, it can be easy to put your own needs last. However, taking care of yourself is crucial for finding your purpose and creating your dream life. 

Make time for self-care activities such as exercise, meditation, or a relaxing bath. And be compassionate with yourself when things don't go as planned. Journaling can be a helpful tool for practicing self-compassion and self-reflection.

Connect with like-minded individuals

Surrounding yourself with people who share your values and goals can be a great source of motivation and support. Seek out communities or groups of individuals who share your interests and passions. Joining online groups, attending workshops or events, or starting a book club are all great ways to connect with others who share your values.

Using Journaling to Find Your Purpose and Create Your Dream Life: Tips and Strategies for Moms

Journaling can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and self-reflection. Here are some ways to incorporate journaling into your journey towards finding your purpose and creating your dream life:

  • Start by setting aside a regular time and place to journal, such as in the morning before your children wake up or in the evening after they go to bed.
  • Use prompts to help guide your writing, such as "What brings me joy?" or "What are my values?"
  • Write down your goals and action plan, and reflect on your progress towards achieving them.
  • Use journaling as a tool for self-care and self-compassion. Write down affirmations or positive self-talk to remind yourself of your worth and capabilities.

The Takeaway

Moms, let's be real – we have a lot on our plates! But amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to put your own dreams and aspirations on the back burner. That's why it's crucial to take time for yourself and reflect on what truly matters to you.
