“The only thing I have done religiously in my life is keep a journal, I have hundreds of them, filled with feathers, flowers, photographs, and words – without locks, open on my shelves."
Terry Tempest Williams
This is Kate and me on safari in Africa, having fun with our journals!
Fill your journals with stickers, use colorful pens, paint in your journal… nothing is off limits. Let your creativity take over, be playful and have fun.
Cut out images that speak to you. Imagine that a picture of a young child is your younger self and you “talk” to this part in your journal… it can lead to great insight.
"I believe, every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment."
Maybe they are quotes from your favourite people or maybe they are around a theme, like forgiveness or confidence, or issues that are important to you.
Like with the quotes, these could be from writers you admire or they could be poems that speak to you personally and inspire you.
And you can use your journal to write your own poetry!
This can be a message to you or something they love about you.
It could also be a drawing – this is something I love to do with my young grandchildren. They love drawing and writing in my journal.
