When individuals start their My Happy Heart Journal the common concerns are all the negative thoughts and complaints that pour out. This can be distressing since the journal encourages writing about positive experiences. This outpouring is a vital key. Let me explain. By putting these negative thoughts on paper you now have the choice of whether you will let those thoughts back in. People are naturally efficient and even if those thoughts re emerge on the next day journal pages there are less negative thoughts.
For me, after writing negative thoughts for a few days I grew tired of it and quickly transitioned to writing about what is important to me. Write the bad stuff 'out' so you can move on to the happy stuff. [Stefan]
