There is just sooo much stuff out there at the moment about journaling! It really is having a renaissance and why not-it’s a brilliant thing to do for all sorts of really interesting reasons!
I should know-I have used it for more years than I care to remember to fix all kinds of stuff in my life, and it worked so well that I knew I had to share it with as many people as I possibly could.
So a few years ago I started teaching my own unique brand of personal development training and knew that daily writing and journaling had to play a really significant part in the programme.
Why? Well because I knew it would give the people I was working with a chance to get clarity, turn off the internal chatter and spend valuable time making plans for an abundant and fulfilled future.
I have worked with almost 1,000 people now and many of those people were really well and truly stuck in a cycle of self sabotage with no way out. Many of my students are already rehabilitating from some massive life challenges. Some have just left prison, others are trying to cope with mental health challenges, survive domestic abuse or recover from addictions. Others are young parents struggling with the stress of family life.
And others are people just like me. Midlife women who are empty nesters, who feel a bit below par, have lost their confidence and are not sure what to do next. Many are facing career changes or challenges and just need time to stop, pause and plan.
And everyone who works with me gets to start writing the next chapter of their life IMMEDIATELY! After all, why wait? There are so many ways that you can start to make changes straight away that it seems pointless to wait!
A journal and a pen are such simple objects and yet they hold the key to so many opportunities such as getting clarity, creating new plans, unravelling challenges and visualising success.
