List of Virtues
You are a special and unique person. Write down what makes you unique. Ask people close to you about what makes you special. This is important. Whenever you feel down, overwhelmed, or like you just can’t do anything right, flip to this list and look over all the wonderful things about you.
This could be a “happiness file” for personal accomplishments, inspirations, compliments, goals and dreams, journal notations, etc. This could list places you want to go, books or music you love, books you want to read, books you want to write. Maybe you want to keep special quotes or articles or pictures that make you laugh. It’s up to you! FlyLady keeps a list of “wants” (stuff you really would like for a gift but you won’t buy for yourself). She told her husband that he had permission to look at that one!
Family and Friends
List ideas for gifts for these special people, their sizes, favorite colors, and what they collect. FlyLady has a section for each family member: in-laws, friends, and SHEs. She also lists correspondence letters or thank you notes that she needs to write. And the most important part: Love letters to her best friend, her dear husband. FlyLady writes them when she feels the need to tell him how much she loves him. Then she puts them on his pillow or in his daytimer.
You may also want to add sections for…
Other shopping lists – presents to buy, books, garden supplies, special items for the home, etc.
Special Projects lists – don’t forget to include your monthly goals!
Professional, member, volunteer, etc. work – things you may be involved in
This is the last day of our Building a Control Journal series.
