Journaling is a personal record of occurrences, experiences, and reflections. For many it is difficult to consider starting to journal and face the fear of the blank pages.
There are other options that might seem less scary than using the written words. One can pick up a watercolor brush, charcoal, or paints and use these as tools for expressing our thoughts and feelings. I shared on an earlier blog about journaling from our non-dominant hand. This is a practice that Lucia Capacchine writes about in her book, Power of Your Other Hand and the Art Of Emotional Healing.
“I want to write, but more than that,
I want to bring out all kinds of things
that lie buried in my heart.”
~ Anne Frank
