“My mind is like a great big closet needing to be cleaned out on a regular basis… removing what doesn’t fit… rearranging what is left gives me a clearer picture of what I need to keep, what needs to be thrown away, and what I need to acquire.” – Reaching for Personal Freedom
Each day, we experience and think about things — some healthy, some not so much. When we allow unhealthy thoughts to swirl around our minds with the healthy ones, it’s just not fun. That’s what it used to be like for me, before I started writing everyday in my journal. The process gives me the opportunity to remove my unhealthy thoughts, in a safe, private forum. I receive clarity in my life as my writing transforms those fears and discomforts into growth, recovery and gratitude. We don’t need to feel bad anymore. If you haven’t started journaling daily, I highly suggest starting right now. Pick up your journal, or buy one, and watch the bad feelings disappear. When I step up for myself, and insist on taking the actions that make me feel good, ILML!
