Not sure if you caught me on Facebook LIVE where I talked about reaching my “A-HA” moment a couple of weeks ago, but since the response was so great from my audience (because we all need more brainspace and magical a-ha moments), I figured I’d share here.
Ya’ll know I'm a big believer in journaling / writing - whatever you wanna call it - for a couple of reasons:
It slows your brain down (it only can think as fast as your hand can write) so your thoughts are more deliberate.
It gets a lot OUT. When you can get things out of your head and onto paper, you make room for new thoughts and moments of genius.
Watch my LIVE where I talk about my own struggles with writing and how I was able to reach an A-HA when I most needed it.
The next morning, I received an email that read:
“I watched your FB Live video yesterday about journaling, and I did it last night, and it helped so much!! Thank you my dear! You are always such an inspiration and I love that your advice on the vids is totally practical. I never would have thought of journaling in the past, but last night I couldn’t sleep, and I realized it was because some things were bothering me, and I got them down on paper and felt a million times lighter. So thank you!!"
In case you haven’t noticed already, I don’t say things just to say things.
I share the things that WORK.
So many people want certain results but aren’t willing to put in the work for them. Are you one of those people? If you are, that’s fine, just be honest with yourself.
Just know that the underlying problems will remain and likely continue unless you choose to dive into self-exploration and self-examination and a willingness to fearlessly look inward.
I’m not a therapist. I’m not a magician. I can’t take all your challenges away. As a coach, I just help you figure out how to tackle them yourself.
Remember doll, nothing changes until YOU change it.
