Good day, Lifestyle Speakers! Wherever it is in the world you are, I hope today finds you in a huge cloud and blanket of “amazinghood”. Today is the day the Lord has made so please be glad and rejoice in it! You did not wake up to be mediocre today!

A couple of months ago, I decided to go on a terrifying journey which I labeled, “the 66 days of self-discipline voyage”. If you are new to my blog and have no idea what I’m talking about, you can click here to read my earlier blog post which details me deciding to journal and ways and plans in which I planned to implement.

During the summer, I decided that I wasn’t disciplined enough, I decided that there were certain things about myself that I wanted to change, I decided that I wanted to be more disciplined in my life. There were resolutions and goals that I made for myself which just weren’t coming to fruition. I decided that I was so stuck in “willpower” instead of “God Power”. So, I decided to let go of my way and do it God’s way by journaling for sixty six days. Sixty six days might seem like a short time to you but choosing to break bad habits and break the devil’s chains over my life for sixty six days seemed like sixty six years.

I started my journaling by making a sixty six day calendar on the first page of my notebook, a calendar for me to check off as each day of the 66 days went by. I had pages of my devotional, which I knew would motivate me on the days the devil decided to tempt me, taped on to the pages. I journaled and wrote daily about my life for sixty six days and that is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever done. To be able to look into my journal and see my days written down, to see events that I’ve forgotten about written down, to be able to reflect on my feelings and my reactions to certain situations is honestly such a beautiful blessing.

Did it work? Yes!!! Yes, it worked!

Yes, journaling helped me so much and there is absolutely no way I could have achieved the things that I’ve achieved except through the help of God. I am much more disciplined, I have grown so much in my life and I feel so burden-free. If you remember, in my earlier blog post which told you guys that I would be journaling, I challenged you guys to also write down the bad habits you wanted to break and go with God on a 66 day voyage of disciplining yourself and overcoming your bad habits. Did you do it? If you did, whether you are done or still doing it, I would like for you to tell me what you think about this self-discipline journey and if you haven’t started, I challenge you to start.

Even if you do not have any reason to discipline yourself at this time, I say that you just journal about your life for the next 66 days and then go back after the 66th day to just look back on your life and see how much you’ve grown. It’s such a great way to reflect in retrospect. It’s just an absolutely beautiful journey and I hope it blesses you!

Thank you for reading my blog today and if you’ve read my last blog post and then this one, you’ll see that I seem to be following back on my Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday upload schedule. I pray things work out for me to be able to! Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you yourself can go on the 66 day self-discipline voyage! As usual, if you have any questions for me, I would be ecstatic to answer. You can ask me down in the comment section below or just shoot me an email at NaomisRefglections@Gmail.Com. Thank you and I hope you have a great rest of your day!
