Feelings or How to Deal

Feelings Journal
Feelings Journal

Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Daisy here and today I thought I’d write a bit about feelings – I mean after all we all have them.  Even me – sure I know I can be all tough on the outside, but really a lot of the time, I am just doing that to hide what’s going on inside.  And while you know I wouldn’t want to change me for the world – after all – who would point when Lily’s getting all super bossy – I thought maybe it was time to work a little on the inside…

Sometimes my dad likes to use weather words to describe my mood – stormy, changing.  She’s joking…I think, but sometimes I guess he”s right.  I can be pretty moody.  Just ask Lily.  So I wondered if there was anything I could do to help me, be well less moody.  So I did a little research and came across this great little exercise that I think will really help.

Ok, so first of all get out your secret notebook, journal, or pad of paper – or if you’re like me, you can use your computer (I like to put a password on my super private files – that no one can break in).
Now that you’re all set with a place to write stuff down, read through the following situations and think about if you’ve been in a similar situation – if you haven’t – use your imagination and think about what it would be like if you had:

  • Your teacher says, “I’ll have to call you parents if you keep doing poorly on tests.”
  • The boy you’re crushing on asks you to go to the school dance
  • Your dad or mom tells your sister how proud they are of her grades
  • Your mom tells you to go to bed, but your favorite tv show still has 20 minutes left on it
  • You wake up on Friday morning and find that school’s been canceled because of a monster snow storm
  • Time for gym class, and everyone, including you has to change in the locker room
  • A new friend says, out of the blue, “You’re so cool”
  • The ref makes a bad call against you at the biggest game of the season

You can set up up your mood journal this way
