Our thoughts are powerful. Negative thoughts can create storms in our heads that are transferred onto our aura and tend to weigh heavy on the heart. Positive ones, though, have the ability to develop into great manifestations.
When our thoughts are clear and understandable, we feel calm and at peace. On the opposite side of the spectrum, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when our thoughts overpower us.
For as long as I could remember, journaling has been my escape. While I was younger, I wrote mostly when I felt sad and needed to get things off my chest. As I’ve grown older, however, my reasons for writing has greatly expanded; I journal to capture my interesting ideas, to find clarity on an issue, and/or to strategize my goals. All in all, I’ve found it better to let my thoughts run wild on paper than in my head–they simply need more space than my brain can supply.
For this week’s self-care challenge, I welcome you all to grab a notebook and pen and answer the following questions that are posed in order to promote self-discovery. Let the answers flow freely from your heart. Take note of how you feel before and after the journaling session.
