Journaling Streak Day 17 :: Ask for answers

17

Sometimes before you begin writing you will know you need guidance toward a particular concern you’re facing.

Ask for that guidance.

Begin with your concern and write until you feel a shift or a clue or a clarity that is undoubtedly encouragement for your concern.

Answers are always accessible within us.

If they don’t come the first time, try again (and again) the next day.

Avoid trying to control the answer. Be open to the sincere answer.

Journaling Streak Day 16 :: Messiness

16

Your journal is a place you never need to worry about its mess.

The mess of grammar, the mess of yourself.

Your journal is not a place to keep tidy, nor a place to keep yourself appearing tidy.

Allow the grammatical gamut to to be gutted, allow the fear of your honesty to be conquered, allow the internal pressure of perfection to bugger off…and go make a mess!

We all wish to be seen.

And to feel safe in being seen.

Journaling gives space for both, as we witness ourselves and our deepest truth within these private pages.

Journaling Streak Day 14 :: No pretending

14

There is no pretending in these pages.

There is no succumbing to the societal, familial or internal pressure to perform.

The handwritten, honest words of journaling help you face head on what you’d be tempted to turn away.

It confirms instincts and clarifies feelings threatened when others seem to experience things differently.

Allow your journaling practice to do this for you by refusing to pretend in these pages.

Journaling Streak Day 11 :: Our whole life

11

“To do writing practice means to deal ultimately with your whole life.” -Natalie Goldberg

Do you realize that so much of your life is lived in the fog of to-do’s, distractions, busyness, shoulds, etc?

Journaling is a way of demanding more from life. Of respecting our precious time and all that life asks us to process and live through and out.

Journaling allows you to uncover and use your whole life as a source of purpose.

It allows you to write another way of seeing things, to release the burden of feeling so many things, and to process the pressure of living through things.

Journaling Streak Day 10 :: Conversing with yourself

10

Voice speaks when given space.

Journaling is ultimately about having a conversation with yourself.

You speak by providing the space for what’s inside of you to speak back.

It’s a practice of sourcing your own wisdom that will reveal you, guide you, clarify you and relieve you.
