Journaling and the Art of Self-Awareness

Last Updated on Wednesday, March 06, 2013

"Loss makes artists of us all as we weave new patterns in the fabric of our lives."~ Greta W. Crosby, Author of Tree and Jubilee, a book of meditation

Writing about any situation will help you gain perspective on it. Many people find they can identify and express their feelings through journaling. This expression not only contributes to our self-awareness, it also contributes to healing through the letting out of emotions, self-acceptance, and the identification of any negative self-talk patterns that we should and can intentionally replace with positive thoughts.

 

We get to revisit and revise our thoughts as they ebb and flow. We get to acknowledge our sorrows; speak to, honor and love those we have lost; and find meaning so we can move forward with hope and strength. Writing need not be confined to prose. Prayers, poems, favorite quotations, and drawings often take wing on the pages of our journals.

 

We invite you to share your writing in the Writing Heals Forum on www.preeclampsia.org.
