I am not a typical "journal" person and I will never have volumes of beautifully handwritten leather bound journals that will be passed down for 100's of years. That's not me.
I am more of a scribbler and it's okay. I get it out of my head, onto paper and then either painted on, torn up, cut into pieces or, in this mornings case, just written out.
Well, that doesn't work and until I had that "duh" moment, I had been holding myself back from something I actually like to do. Creative Journaling not only helps me clear my mind, it is creative all at the same time. It is cheap therapy and is so needed, not just for me. Once I gave myself creative permission to record my thoughts, concerns, dreams, prayers, etc however I felt I wanted to express them, it opened up a whole new way to create.
