You are in a foreign country, you don’t
speak the native tongue, you have to try
and function in society. You dont know anyone.
You have never been homesick a day in your
life– until now. Yet you still need to show up
at a job and be at the top of your game.
This is how I felt when I lived in Germany,
before I met all the wonderful people over there.
For a few months it was overwhelming and
in many ways the new experience hurt.
The same was true for being thrown into
a college 3-a-day session summer camp
as a “green” high school recruit.
In both cases, I did something most other
dudes had no interest in most likely.
I journaled my anxieties. My fears. My excitements.
I journaled who I met and what their names were.
I journaled how I missed home and when the
next time I’d see my old friends and family.
I journaled my injuries and lacerations–
yes, lots of stapled up nose entries. Hah.
I journaled just about any high and low in each life adventure.
Journaling is good for you on many levels.
Namely, it gets your emotions out of your body.
It eases the pain and frustration when you see it
all paper. Reason is it’s no longer bottled up inside.
I recommend this to my coaching clients and
I will recommend it to you.
Having financial problems — just journal it baby.
Having trouble dealing with your kids or spouse — just journal it baby.
Every seeming bad thing — just journal it.
Every good thing, do the same.
And what you will find is you will feel more relief.
You will have less stress and the universe
will line up to give you support in that troubled area.
This is how I see it based on this tool that I
have used ever since I was a weed lad
wet behind the ears back in the summer of 1990.
It is pretty intimidating to an 18 year old to think about 5 straight
weeks of 3-a-days and getting your ace handed to you.
So how do you handle it?
One day at a time — is what my intuitive mind suggested.
And journaling focused my mind for one day at a time mentality really well.
You can get through anything you are faced with right now.
With this one day at a time mindset.
If you would like to get additional coaching on
handling challenges. Yes, this scratches the surface

Be well baby!
