The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

The Accomplishments of Optimism


Have you ever met a successful pessimist? Become an optimist, and see your world change before your eyes!” Chris Widener

I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

Optimism: “hopefulness and confidence about the future or the successful outcome of something” New Oxford American Dictionary

You can't accomplish anything unless you try. So if you want to get something done, try, and then be optimistic about it. Imagine building the tallest building in the world; it seems pretty much impossible (at least it does to me). Now realize that all of the tallest buildings in the world were built by people who decided, that is what they wanted to do. Now imagine them saying to themselves as they broke ground, “I'll never be able to build the tallest building in the world.” What sounds more unrealistic, building the tallest building in the world, or the person who has, thinking that they couldn't? Lets get out there, dream big, have confidence through optimism, and remember to spend a lot of time asking God for help. Remember the promise in Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Daily Journaling Questions:
      1. How did I help someone in kindness today?
      2. What did I learn today?
      3. What am I thankful for?
      4. Who did I love today?
      5. What am I dreaming for?
      6. What about today do I want to remember forever?
      7. What are my goals for tomorrow?
Thank you for reading, you mean a lot to me.
