Journaling is a powerful way to express thoughts and feelings. Putting things on paper is a way to visualise your future.
But what I’ve found most about journaling is its healing abilities.
No matter what you’re going through in your life, writing it down is a way of speaking. And getting the words out is a cathartic, healing and uplifting experience all at the same time.
If you’re ready to start journaling and just don’t know how to start, try these few tips to get you started.
1. Just Start Writing
The beauty about journaling is that it can be messy. It’s your true thoughts coming to life and now your dumping them down on paper. So write to your heart’s content.
2. Don’t Try To Be Perfect
Journaling is a process. Nothing about this has to be perfect. Healing is not a perfect thing. It’s a process of emotional growth and change. And nothing about that is perfect.
3. Be your TRUTH: Your truth is yours. Own it. Accept it. Live it. Breathe it. It’s yours. No matter what your story is, you have the power to change. You have the strength to be the amazing person you were meant to be.
Never punish yourself for your truth. We all have a story. And everyone’s story is different and unique.
Today, it’s all about taking action. Grab a journal. Start writing. And see your life change.
