Today I plan to spend some time journaling. I was excited to see that Michelle Obama released a companion journal to her book Becoming. I had to make the purchase since I was in Target yesterday picking up other items.
The first question has honestly stopped me in my tracks. “What is your story and have you learned to embrace it?”. To some that might not be a loaded question. But for me, it causes me to truly be reflective and not compare my journey to everyone else’s. Writing my story will be quite interesting. And embracing will be another triumph within itself. But I am open to the task.
When was the last time you wrote your thoughts out on paper? Take some time today for this therapeutic exercise. You just might surprise yourself.
