Journaling Through Life

Mar 16, 2024

I have a been journaling since the 7th grade, on and off throughout my life. It’s interesting to go back and look at what I thought was important, and the challenges that I went through that have brought me to where I am today.

CHANGE. The one thing that is constant in life. We all know it.

The questions, I have been asking:
: Can I accept change for what it is?
: Can I have faith in whatever is changing—is for my highest well-being?
: Can I trust in the Universe and allow faith to be my guide?

The simple answer is yes because everything that has happened in my life has brought me to where I am now. Whether is was claiming bankruptcy in my 20’s, from buying a house on a credit card, yes I did that. ;-/ Watch it go into foreclosure and then taking a graphic design job for $4.50 per billable hour. Which led me to my Soul Sister, Trina and a graphic design business of my own beginning in June of 1995.

I planted a seed in my 20’s that I would have my own business by the time I was 30 years of age. The Universe kept giving me hints to do just that, and I ignored them until a huge event happened and forced me to do just that.

Journaling has been my companion through dating, friends coming and going, marriage, being a parent, my C-Adventure, divorce, and still now.

What has changed in my journaling is that I now have a daily practice of Morning Intentions and Evening Gratitude. This has been a game changer for me. Instead of writing what isn’t working and being frustrated in my life, I am sending out energy every morning of what I wish for—without expectation. And, at the same time giving thanks for ALL that is currently my life. And, I mean ALL.

The last few years, as I have been doing this, I can feel and see my life shifting. It seems easier to embrace change because the shift seems softer not as edgy. Maybe it’s because I am finally accepting that life IS change. And, the only thing I have control over is how I respond to those changes in life. Am I going to listen when the nudge is soft? And trust? Or, will I hold on to being comfortable, and let the Universe send me a HUGE sign once again. 

I am choosing to have faith in my power to face the unknown. To surrender to my heart, acknowledge the signs, symbols and synchronicities along the way. Follow and listen to them as they appear because they will bring my dreams into reality. (In a soft way, not harsh.) Again, having faith that I can face the obstacles along the way. I am learning to respond to my reality, and flow towards the abundance in the fullness of a loving life.

I wish the same for you reading these words. You may or may not know, I have created a journal for Morning Intentions and Gratitude.

And, on Saturday, March 30, 2024 you can join me in classroom at Red Butte Garden for Journal integration and Qigong outside in the courtyard. We will discuss in detail how you can create your own routine. This event will include a journal and movement to help you ground into intentions and gratitude.

All the details are here.
