16 Feb Journaling
Journaling has been very beneficial to me.
It has enabled me to create space.
Space to think.
Space to be with my myself.
Space to exist.
Space to learn.
Space to create,
Space to find courage and energy.
Space to grow.

Journaling is a self-exploration tool, giving a voice to different parts of ourselves.
Whether you journal daily or occasionally, to download your thoughts or investigate particular themes, using prompts or writing down what is coming to your mind, in the morning or in the evening, whether your journal is messy, a repository of words or a mix of drawings, paintings, collages and dried flowers…
