    Mari L. McCarthy January 31, 2014

    Do you have a memory of a favourite tree? Most people do. Trees are a great source of material for your journal writing life.

    The Cherokees called trees the standing people, telling us that trees embody the energy of our ancestors. Taking this cue from the ancients write a list of personal strengths that have gotten you this far in your life?
    'There's something incredibly honest about trees in winter: they're experts in letting go,' writes Jeffrey Mcdaniel. As fast as you can write a memory about letting go?

    If you were a tree what kind of tree would you be? Imagine becoming still like a tree. Write about what you would see and observe in the stillness about your life right now? Write about what you may have missed or overlooked. ~Jackee Holder, Author of 49 Ways to Write Yourself Well 


    We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
