I love starting a fresh new journal, it’s like a fresh start of sorts. I have saved my journals for years and it’s so fun to go back and read them and celebrate how far I’ve come or find gold nuggets that I’ve forgotten about! I started a new journal this month on Friday, October 6th in Portland, Oregon. I always write the day, date, and location when I write.
I write in the morning as part of my morning rituals. Journaling for me is a way to get through surface-level thoughts, and then tap into my deepest inner thoughts. These thoughts are often inaccessible to me once I start my day, but they are easily accessible in the morning when I feel most connected. This is also the time that I free write about my dreams and visions for my life and my service to others. I give thanks for these things and declare them done; I am expectant of good things in my life every day.
Here’s something I wrote on Oct 6, 2023:
“There is a level of myself, of each of us that we have yet to discover. The “me” that we have been is often blocking us from the next level of intimacy and connection that is required for our next level growth. The dream has not changed; it’s simply requiring a new depth. Dig deeper.”
