When I started off in my teens I did not have friends that I could confide in. I was an introvert and seldom shared my heart with anyone. I have no regrets about the same, as in my solace I found a gift, the gift of journaling. It was the best thing to happen that I never planned and I am so grateful for it.
Now, I was not someone who studied literature and in school didn't even like to read but when I started journaling a whole new avenue of possibilities opened up. Things that I could share with no one, my pains, my joys, my goof ups, my sorrows, the first time I kissed, the first time we fought, the first time he held my hand, the complaints against my parents, my traumas and abuse were just some emotions of a teenage girl that I found easy expressing in my journal. What began as an attempt to find a shoulder to lean on was actually therapeutic. And this boon continued into my adult life. The best part of all of this was that I did not have to wait on anyone, did not need to base my actions on someone else's perceptions, conclusions or judgements and I my own inner conscience developed a great deal. I became my own coach, healer and guide. This inner being, the higher voice that paved the way for me was most definitely influenced by all the resources I did have access to, as I cultivated and added newer mentor's regularly. The huge impact my buddhist practice, the of the writings of Louise Hay, Dr Wayne Dyer, Dr.Daisaku Ikeda, Oprah Winfrey, Abraham & Esther Hicks, Earl Nightingale were some of the many individuals that became the voices in my head and I channeled them when I journaled. The three books that I have authored so far, came into existence as a result of the blessing of my journaling practice. My learnings are weaved into my content and I love to share my experiences with others, as we are all connected in manners not yet revealed. I am because you are.
Journaling soothes me.
It is the light in the dark and the calm in the storm.
It is a stress buster and a higher knowing.
It clears my mind and creates fruitful thoughts
It helps me keep on track of my goals and targets
It is my place of idiation
It is my outpour
It is where I heal
It is my forever friend
A shoulder to cry on
It is not opinionated and it is combined with wisdom
It is where I detach from my problems and step into awarness
It is the place that I clear the crap so that I continue to develop
my mind to attract what I desire.
