Journaling is a doorway inward.
Focused journaling/writing is one of my primary practices in my healing journey. Of course the occasional unfettered dump into my diary is necessary, but when I began to combine my love of writing with the focused intention of personal exploration and processing, I found a powerful tool.
I hope this prompt helps you lean in and explore your thoughts, emotions, responses, and your connection to your body.
Be sure to check in with yourself as you write and step away if you need a break. Wishing you strength as you heal, and happy writing.
