Hello wonderful you,
When I started journaling, I didn’t realize it then but, journaling opened a way into myself. It gave me the way to go within, to find out about me, what I believe in, what I wanted, who I am.
The more I sit with my journal the more I’m in love with not just my journal, but the joyful time I’m spending with myself journaling.
Over time I’ve built a relationship with my journal, and while at times, I may not pick it up every day, I know that I cannot live without it. It’s my go to place, my sanctuary. There is nothing that I cannot spill onto the page, it doesn’t matter if it’s just three pages of pure jibberish or, deep, childish or amazing, it feels so good to let it out. This is my magical world and I don’t have to pretend to be anyone but who I am. It’s where I can open to my deepest secrets, my deepest pains, the deepest everything within me, bring them to light so I can see beyond the obvious and gain clarity and understanding. It’s where I can record new ideas, find out what I’m thinking, give thanks, write a gratitude letter to my body, embrace change, vent frustrations, connect with my inner knowing…I mean there is so much that journaling offers.
There are many styles of journaling (but that’s for another blog) for me, I found that I love free style writing the most. It’s the greatest way to free myself from thoughts that are cluttering up my mind, gain clarity, understanding, expand my mind and play in my imagination.
Discovering our own self is the magical ingredient in our life.
I really believe that the greatest purpose we have in this life is to get to know who we are and what our inner gifts are and journaling is the tool that opens the way.
My invitation for you today – pick up a notebook and a pen and begin.
When you start to know your inner most self, life becomes magical.
Well, that’s it for today. I hope this blog post serves you and inspires you. I’m happy to read your comments.
Wishing you a happy, bright and blessed week ahead.
