Ever since I was young, I’ve kept a journal. There were years where I religiously spilled my guts into a journal, my first romances, my deepest worries, my concerns.
Then, for many years I did not write. Many years. Like most of my 20s and part of my 30s.
Today I write daily. It’s become a habit that I’m keen to keep up. One that I make a priority each morning, before I dive into my day.
About 20 years ago I came across Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way and started again, using her guidance, to write regularly. I bought a bunch of her books The Sound of Paper, The Artist’s Way at Work… and I ate them up.
I was in my late 20s and early 30s and so much was changing about my life I needed an outlet.
I was in my own business and there was a lot of confusion about what I was doing and where I was going. And it really helped.
In this episode I explain how I recently rediscovered the power of a daily journaling habit and how I got past the concern of not having anything to write or say.
