Celebration List – June 2020 / Journaling Prompts To Help Create Monthly Celebration List

Following a suggested from an email I received from Rosetta Thurman, Life Coach for the remainder of 2020, I want to start writing a monthly gratitude journal so I can see just how far God have brought me from month to month throughout the year.

Like life coach Rosetta Thurman, I took some self care time for me in June 2020 and going to July 2020. When there’s a lot going on externally that I can’t change, it always helps me to have plenty of self care time as well and focus on things I can control.

As always, I too encourage you like Rosetta Thurman, Life Coach suggested you too claim ALL of your wins – no matter what stage you’re at in your own intentional personal life growth and development and business. And don’t forget to actually reward yourself for a job well down!

I REWARD myself for a job well down in regards the goals I completed for my life and business and brought myself in June 2020 a brand new much needed “Bessel Powerforce Helix” vacuum cleaner which is the #1 consumers choice in vacuums.
