I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, but alas, life has been so full and so good–it has been difficult to set aside some time to write! Having a moment purely to myself and my thoughts is rare. However, I make sure that I take time for me every day, even if it is only 5 minutes. Personal care and health are so so SO important.
Today I wanted to share with you all something introduced to me by a yoga friend and a lovely woman by the name of Joyce Rennolds, motivator and inspirational speaker. She has a class every Tuesday 7-8:30 pm at the PalmerHouse Property Building (2911 Piedmont Road, Atlanta, GA 30305). Go, and I promise you your life will never be the same.
Joyce introduced me to concept of “Scripting”. Scripting is the process of writing out your life, the way you want it to be, as if it were already true. I see it almost as the opposite of journaling. Journaling is writing about HAS happened. Scripting is writing your life story, as it WILL happen.
For example, if I want one of my struggling students (hey I’m a K12 teacher..I have to do a teacher example!;) to finally understand a math concept and begin investing more time at school–I would write in my scripting book, “My lovely student, Jennifer, understands how to add fractions and comes to school with new ownership of her education”.
Or if I want a new car, I would script, “I buy my dream car.” **Notice this is NOT the same as writing “I will buy my dream car.” ** When you script, you write in the present tense. You write as if things are already the way you want.
Why script? Because it directs energy towards the life of your dreams. By directing energy to the life you want, that life is going to come to you. Everything is energy. Our thoughts, our actions–it is all energy. Sending energy toward all those good and happy things we want (more friends, new friends, a healthy relationship, healing a relationship, international travel, perfect health, a new job, paying off debt, etc) while ALSO expressing gratitude for all that we have, is how we can actually get the life we want.
Scripting has changed my life, and it can change your life too! Everything I have scripted for has come true. Really it has.
Check out Joyce’s class on Tuesdays–you won’t regret it!!! Plus she will give you tips and tricks and A LOT more detail than I have done in this post. Go. Learn how to script. Get the life you always wanted. 🙂
