The Joy of Journaling (and why I don't do it anymore)
Journaling can be an important tool for discovering your deepest truths ... and it can also be a way to make your most problematic patterns become even more deeply entrenched.
Journaling can offer a pathway to that feeling of wholeness, comfort and coming home because it’s the one place where we allow ourselves to be 100% authentic.
For many of us, the pages of our journal are the one place where we allow ourselves to tell the truth of how we really feel, what we wish we could say if life had no rules, and what we imagine we’d do if we had the freedom to do whatever we want.
That’s why it feels so good.
But what happens when you put your pen down, close your journal and return to reality?
Sometimes the difference between the way your life IS and the way you WISH it was, is so stark that it can be a bit disheartening. That’s why some people avoid this kind of truth telling, because it creates a spotlight that they can no longer hide from.
But ... it doesn't take much for this wonderfully accepting place to turn into a dark force that can make your problematic patterns much more intense.
In this episode I tell you the story of how Hello Kitty helped me fall in love with journaling, and why I don’t do it anymore.
