Discover Yourself Through Journaling
My word of the year is change. I made this my word of the year because I fear and hate change. But I need to learn how to embrace it instead of running away from it.
Change helps us to grow and to learn. This is what I need in my life. But, before I can change I need to discover myself. I know through journaling I will be able to find out who I am and what exactly I want.
Journaling is not something that’s going to work overnight. So, don’t expect amazing results right away. But, the more you do it, the more you’ll be able to discover yourself through journaling.
