I took a big leap yesterday... I was supposed to post a new blog, but instead, I decided that taking the time to set up all the background stuff to launch my new free course, Jumpstart to Journaling was where I needed to focus.
I must confess it took me a while to make the connection between this course and the upcoming, Bust Out of Your Fear Box! And then it happened. I realized that so many students who have taken my Writing From the Heart and Using Writing Prompts courses have told me that they are afraid to even open a journal at the beginning. I get that, believe me. When I started journaling in earnest, I thought I was going to uncover something horrible. And I did. More than a few things, but because I was writing from my heart, my heart knew when it was time to help me remember the things I had kept buried my whole life.
It's my firm belief that the only way to get to the other side of your fears is to move through them by doing exactly what we're afraid of.
I created Jumpstart to Journaling for those of you who:
- are afraid to journal
- want to journal but don't know where to begin,
- and for those of you who are tired of writing the same surface drivel, journal entry after journal entry.
In the 7 days it takes for you to complete the lessons, you'll bust through your fear of journaling and will be inspired to keep going.
WHAT IS JUMPSTART TO JOURNALING?
Jumpstart to Journaling is a 7-lesson exploration of journaling that teaches you different journal writing styles and encourages you to discover which ones work best for you. There are 8 different techniques covered in detail, with journaling assignments for each. I'm very proud to say that 3 of the journal writing methods are ones that I've developed myself. Oh, and there are a bunch more styles you can learn about by downloading. There are downloads galore in this course!
JUMPSTART TO JOURNALING IS THE WAY FORWARD TO A HABIT OF SELF-LOVE AND SELF-CARE
My ultimate goal in Jumpstart to Journaling is to move you from being journal-phobic to a journaling-junkie!
