Thank you to Big Life Journal!

I just wanted to share something amazing that happened today with my little one. We started our Big Life Journal about 3 weeks ago after we completed our 5 day Self Love Challenge. I had had it for a while but hadn't been sure or confident about introducing it. Today I had to tell my little man that I was changing his school as he seems to really be struggling where he is … as expected, this was met with fear, anger, and aggression. It's hard for my 7yr old to communicate … I talked to him, told him everything he was feeling was ok and that I completely understood. After a little while he told me his brain was split on part was telling him to go for it, and it will be ok and the other was that he should stay where he is. I explained to him that this was his growth and fixed mindsets working, and reminded him of what we had learnt during our short time with Big Life Journal. By pulling out something he had already been thinking about, reminding him of the fact its a superpower, he started to come round. Really quickly he was able to tell me that the Growth mindset was winning, and within the hour from this conversation, he was much more positive about the whole situation. After a visit to the new school, I said to him "I think it will work out, you know" he replied "I KNOW it will work out" From having where he was when I told him this was a massive deal. I have to say I am really proud of him. Thank you Big Life Journal, I am sure the work that we have done over the past few weeks has really helped our situation today. I am one super proud mummy, and I have one amazing little boy. I will take this win today ... the transition will have its struggles but by believing in himself that he can do it and it will be ok, he is partway there .... it's in his journal! THANK YOU!

Unexpected reaction

Gave to my grandson who is 10 going on 22 LoL and really missing his Dad (my son) who is in the military. He’s mom doesn’t let them have a lot of contact so I thought this would be good for him to have things to talk about with his Dad. When I showed him the page about his super powers he smiled so big and started checking some items off the list and I thought my heart would bust! He actually hugged the book to show me how he felt about he’s gift and I knew the little dent on the front from shipping wouldn’t matter... then he looked at the book again and tried to fix the dent! anywayLoL
