No MJ is not Michael Jackson, or Michael Jordan, or even Mary Jane.
MJ stands for Miracle Journal. And MJ can indeed change your life – because it certainly did mine!
The concept is simple, but the magic is in the doing.
Pull out a notebook, either a physical one, or an online note-taking app, like Evernote.
Start listing down all the miracles that have happened in your life. Just one line each.
Irrespective of how tough our lives may have been, we have each had those magical moments. Like the time a friend saved you when you were in trouble. The time when you went on your first date with your partner. The time when ate your most favourite food. Or when the delivery guy came just in time as you were leaving on vacation. The vacation itself. The visa for the journey, that came through despite you not meeting all the criteria. Or the job you got when you needed one so badly. Or the promotion. When a stranger helped you with directions in an unfamiliar city. That one teacher in kindergarten who was extra kind to you. Getting a taxi just when you need it.
Yes, these are tiny almost unnoticeable events in our lives. But taken together, they are a gargantuan force that has shaped who we are today. On any day when things aren’t going that well for us, all we need to do, is to open up MJ, and relive what life has given us, and how gracious it has been.
Trust me, we will feel lucky instantly, and the rest of the day will be fantastic. Try it – MJ will not disappoint!
