Why Journal?by Sue Meyn on 09/20/10
At the core of my passion for journaling is the belief that everyone--each individual person--has within them a kind of creative 'magic'. It's magic because only YOU can create from that place. It is the doorway to our Higher Selves and our connection to God--as each of us defines that force. It's also a door into joy and peace and gratitude for where we are here and now.
I can't tell you how many times I've gotten caught up in this or that irritation, be it from family or work or the crazy politics of today, where I found relief when I sat at my journal. From my artist's pad I feel reflective joy and peace, and acceptance of who I am, warts and all.
I believe that my journal has saved my life---or at least enhanced my quality of life. I am so much more sane and pleasant after a "session" in my journal.
If this is something you've been wanting to do...and just haven't gotten there, I hope you'll use this little blog as a springboard into your own journaling. Just grab a piece of paper and jot down what's going on and how you feel. It will begin to flow if you just let go and realize this doesn't have to be perfect. YOU are perfect, and that is enough.
