Start your New Year on the page!
It isn't everyday that something this wonderful comes along. Before Christmas, I just completed an on line course from the wonderful Stephanie Lee. Turns out she is not only a talented artist, but fabulous journal writing coach. The course was about learning to journal, so I thought. I didn't know exactly what was involved, but thought I might learn how to make a pretty journal I see on so many mixed media artist sights right now. Since I had never written in a journal, not since 5th grade, I thought it might be inspirational, and I would learn some new techniques. Boy, did I learn some new stuff!
Stephanie didn't teach us how to make pretty pictures and write some lovely words around them. Turns out, that's not what the course was about! Of course you can do that if you want to. It was a soul searching class about getting inside your heart and head, working through all that "dark" stuff you might have repressed for so many years, and finding a way to release it...finding a way to express it on "the page", as Stephanie refers to journaling. She offers the most open, encouraging and safe forum for you, giving you a road map to tackle issues you never thought possible. She offers prompts to start your writing off, and amazing audio interviews with talented women, to allow the insight to continue. By clearing out the darkness, there is light. Yes, this is an endorsement! I would be happy to sing Stephanie's praises to anyone.
If you want to start the New Year off with an open, refreshing outlook on your challenges, creativity, relationships and peace of mind, take a look at this course. It's the best $50 I ever spent. Daily journaling has become a part of my life now, and I can't imagine not doing it. Give yourself a gift, and start taking those deep, fulfilling breaths you used to, I had forgotten what that was like! I put the link on here for you to read about, let me know what you think.
Happy New Year everyone!!
