2020 bounced in and shook the world into a new way of existing. You undoubtedly have unique experiences, and many of us are starting to split out of our cocoons and head back into the world. Making your way back to "normal" may come with some anxiety- the trepidation of dealing with folks.
During our being shut-in, self-care became one of the hottest keyword searches on google. Now specifically, journaling is no longer left to the ramblings and musings of a teenage girl but also for those currently adulting.
All this "bumping of the gums," AKA talk of journaling, may have you curious about putting that good inky pen to crisp paper; if it is time for you to speak your truth, allow it to live elsewhere outside your body. Like a non-judgemental bound notebook.
If you think about that dreaded blank page and where to start, you are not alone. Maybe you have tried, and several things keep happening to you.
"It is 10:00 pm, and I forgot to write in my journal. Ugh, I hate getting out of bed to get it."
"I'm so busy finding the time to journal seems daunting."
"Ooh, how do you spell that again?" "Does a comma go here, or should I use a semi-colon?"
I won't sit here and lie to you and say that journaling will rest on your heart and you will be inclined to do it automatically. It is like going to the gym; you may find it hard to go, but once you start seeing the results, it becomes a non-negotiable practice. If you want to explore this avenue of self-care, it can be fulfilling and rewarding.
In this workbook, we discuss whether journaling is for you. There is a checklist, and if you check none of the boxes, then coins well spent, you curb the idea of journaling and move on. If you want to proceed, this workbook will set you up for a great start.
Your story matters. Journaling has been the most free-flowing ride that has taken me through some storms, but when I arrive at the destination, more times than not, I smile. I will see you inside.
GO AHEAD AND LET YOUR EXPLORATION BEGIN.
