My Journaling Journey

Posted by Anthony Billoni on Tue, Aug 08, 2017 @ 08:00 AM

Maybe turning 50 was a flashing yellow light.  Maybe I was afraid the light was about to turn red – on reaching significant goals I had set for myself.

What came to be my daily journaling habit was years in the making.  Recently I came across an online journal from close to 10 years ago. Just one entry.

A Journaling Come Back

Posted by Angel Fridholm on Tue, Aug 01, 2017 @ 02:45 AM

In my life, one thing I have been able to count on is journaling.  Now I will not sit here and say I only have one journal, am dedicated each day, or that I make the time, though I can.  All of this would be untrue.  What I will tell you is, I have numerous journals of all types, scraps of paper, even a few online ones too, I use several writing utensils depending on my mood, one consistency is lighting my apple cinnamon candle.  It’s a must have for me!

So, when I journal it varies.  To top it off I may journal in a different journal each time.  What helps is that I date it no matter what type it is. It all depends on mood or whether I have a set journal, say for health, exercising, ranting, or other.

How Journaling Made Me More Productive

Posted by Carol Brennan on Tue, Jul 25, 2017 @ 12:01 PM

In 2015 I started working with a mindset coach.  At this time I had very little direction in my life and was just existing day-to-day.  I didn’t have any goals or plans.  I’m a small business owner and my day consisted of just getting up, procrastinating and then fighting whatever was the latest emergency that needed my attention.

One of the first things my coach had me do was journal.  I started with a brain dump – where you just write down everything that’s on your mind.  It used to be that my mind was so cluttered that I’d forget appointments.  Once I got my thoughts down on paper, I was able to organise them better.  I could put dates in my diary and set goals that I wanted to achieve.

Does Writing Help with Depression?

Posted by Vlad Osipkov on Sat, Jul 22, 2017 @ 12:54 PM

A few years back I used to work a lot on my writing. It wasn’t anything professional, it wasn’t even in English, I just really enjoyed writing different role-playing settings.  Very fitting for a geek like me, but I digress.

A few years later, when I joined the army, I forgot all about my writings.  I still enjoyed making up scenarios and the like, it’s just that I was busy 24/7 with boot camp and some “specialized training”.

Someone to Watch Over Me

Posted by Lucy Grace Yaldezian on Tue, Jul 11, 2017 @ 07:34 AM

When my nephew, Alex, was five, I wanted to give him comfort and guidance in the aftermath of his parents’ divorce.  I live several states away and visits were infrequent.  I wanted not only to express my love for him in a tangible way, but also to offer him resources he could call upon in a variety of situations he might experience day to day, such as difficulties with expressing his feelings or thoughts, challenges with friendships and any sense of isolation.  I couldn’t be there in person, so I introduced him to 26 Guardian Protectors, specific Angels and Heavenly Beings who were only a thought away.  This was how Someone to Watch Over Me began almost a decade ago.

Perhaps you are the parent of such a young, sensitive child facing a life-changing challenge.  Or perhaps there is a wounded child living within the depths of your own personal history, recognizable from school-age photos, a world of hurt and confusion behind a tentative smile.  The bottom line is that all children benefit by knowing the spiritual resources available to them.  In my experience in the healing arts for the past 25 years, a spiritually resourced child is stronger, calmer, more compassionate, more successful and more resilient.

Why I Started Journaling

Posted by Ollie Aplin on Tue, Jun 13, 2017 @ 10:20 AM

How many times have you gone to write something, and just not known where to start? There are so many places to start, it’s hard to just pick one word or thought.  And as you stare longer and longer at the blank page, the more crippled you feel – and the words in your mind seem to disappear.
