Journaling is a safe space to tell your story.
Journaling is your time for:
Organizing your thoughts and observations to understand your feelings.
Self-reflection to look at your feelings, emotions and actions in a neutral way.
Insights to gain clarity, which helps resolve issues.
There is magic in the written word. Writing past and current thoughts in our own hand increases self-awareness. The idea is to write your thoughts in your own words for a closer look at what is really important to you. This helps to develop a deeper desire to learn and grow from your experiences and to become a higher version of yourself. If journaling is new to you and you don’t know where to start, begin with a focus of where you are now, with a brief introduction about who you are.
Consider these reflective questions to answer for any situation you write about:
- What does this situation mean to you right now?
- What does this situation give you the opportunity to reflect on?
- What actions are you going to take as a result of this situation?
“Journal writing, when it becomes a ritual for transformation, is not only life-changing but life-expanding.” Jennifer Williamson
