Use your journal to grow and bloom
I’m so excited to be here in your inbox this morning. Thank you for subscribing to Good Things Come to Those Who Journal.
Here in Connecticut we saw 60 degrees yesterday. I took the opportunity to start my flower seeds and now I’m dreaming of spring! It’s my favorite time of year, a time of new beginnings as the earth wakes up after winter - daffodils popping up from the ground, yellow forsythia blossoms festooning branches, bunnies visiting my yard. And let’s not forget the magic of more minutes of daylight every day!
I also think of journaling when I think of new beginnings. What better tool to help us grow and bloom?
Journaling helps me better understand what I think and how I feel, find clarity, gain perspective, work through solutions to challenges, process what I’m learning, track my progress toward goals, improve my communication skills, increase my gratitude, and so much more. I’m convinced that journaling can help me in every area of my life.
You’ve heard me say it before, but it bears repeating: There is no wrong way to journal. And there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to journaling either, so we each get to play and explore and discover ways to journal that work for us.
The way you journal doesn’t have to look like the way I journal. That’s what I most appreciate about it. It’s versatile and customizable, and there are ways for each of us to feel successful as we do it.
I’ve been journaling for a long time now. As much as I appreciate journaling for all it does for me, nothing gets me more excited about it than helping others catch the magic and create a practice of their own.
I’m here to help and support you as you start journaling and start journaling better.
Please reach out at any time with questions or comments!
