It is not merely a mirror of your feelings and thoughts, but a place to explore your truth to create an intimate look at life and your purpose in it.
This practice goes beyond the teenage years of penning the latest gossip, pining about your new crush, complaining about your parents, or dramatizing your social life. Although this was quite helpful in those informative years, however transformational journaling takes you a few steps further. An intentional journal process for personal growth allows you to create deep and lasting change in your life. When you understand of how your actions, behaviors, habits and thoughts contribute to our life experience, you become empowered to make choices that allow you to live beyond what you think is possible.
