My husband of 39 years died abruptly last year and my life broke from my intended path. The intensity of my grief often overwhelms me and writing about helps to get some perspective on what is happening with me.
I often feel like I wandered into a maze where I try many paths and have to turn around when I find they lead nowhere. Here is where my character is tested and I have to keep trying even when it’s exhausting. Sometimes I succeed and I am so proud. I’m doing things i’ve Never done before like building furniture, unclogging drains, making changes to the house. For the first time I am making big decisions without having anyone to discuss them with. This seems to be the area that is the hardest for me and I often am stuck as I over analyze the different choices. I struggle with mild anxiety and this is why I chose to work with Fabulous. I wanted to bring some order and routine to my life and build new habits. I’ve had to add all of my husband’s chores to my own and unless I have reminders I have a hard time remembering things.
Journaling is an aspect of self-care that Fabulous has brought to me and with hope 5 years from now i’ll Look back over my journal and see how I started my own true path.
- What do you write when you just don’t have anything to say? Do you write anyway?
- Where do you find journaling prompts?
- I get overwhelmed with all the things I need to fix about myself. How do I narrow it down on what to write about.
- What do you reflect on in your journal?
- What techniques or how or when do you do it? What do you journal about?
- How many different journals do you keep?
- What have you learned about yourself through journalling?
- are bullet journals worth it or do they cause too much of a hassle?
- What time of the day is best to write in your journal?
- Am I keeping a diary too long? Would it be better to spend the entire day at a certain time in the evening?
