Today, I invite you to list at least 5 possible ways to support your journaling habit and then imagine your day as journaling impacts how it flows.
My Journaling List
My list includes:
- Journal most mornings—first in my dream journal, recording dreams and sometimes interacting with them, then in my journal-journal. If I feel so inspired I will also work on other writing after journaling.
- Spend time with my muse. Asking my coach to facilitate me in my “Meet Your Muse” exercise twice a month or more.
- Spend time in nature every day.
- Schedule journaling time with a friend at least twice a month.
- Use the October Journaling Adventure to work through The Joy of Writing Journal for a second round!
I imagined my day starting with journaling in bed upon waking—which is often the case. I see myself allowing for the journal to inspire additional writing, perhaps a few final chapters for my next book (almost done)!
I also envisioned time spent meditating from within the field of infinite possibilities.
In my imagining, “work is breezy and opportunities to share my passion for journaling and creativity easily come to me.”
I envision my books supporting my calling: “I show up alive and awake—inspiring others to write / create / connect / express / flow / innovate / believe / trust / enjoy.
“I write, teach and connect authentically from my true self, and inspired by those writers who have sparked my creativity: SARK, Anne Lammot, Natalie Goldberg, Julia Cameron, my coach Tama Kieves.”
What do you imagine journaling does for you in your writing, your other creative projects, your home life, your relationships/family and more?
Please also share:
- What this group adventure in journaling has meant to you
- Anything that changed for you
- What happened during this month of writing/journaling in community?
- What’s next? How will you keep up the momentum? What do you commit to?
I’ve also been thinking specifically about what I can offer you to help you keep your journaling and writing momentum going. As a result, I’ve opened the doors to my Get Your Writing Done Program, which is a phenomenal way to support your creative habits.
In this out-of-the-box virtual workshop we employ the TENER Method for Creative Flow to enter into a state conducive to inspired writing; then we write! No staring at a screen in “zoom room” state. Instead we move, write, connect, then move and write some more—just like you’d do in person. FUN! Plus, the accountability and community are a great boost to writing consistently. It could be just what you need to complete your writing project(s). Find out more here.
Thank you for joining me on this journaling adventure.
