Recently a friend sent me a link to a great post on oprah.com: 2-Minute Journal Prompts That Inspire Real Change
One of the prompts, from the authors of the book Your Life is a Book, really spoke to me, “If my life were a journey, it would be about this _________________”
I thought that this was an interesting writing exercise to reflect on since I am going through my hero’s journey. I am so focused on the journey, that I never really think of the big picture and what it is about.
I picked up a book this weekend while browsing in a book store, and opened to a line that said something about how we all spend so much time worrying about life and trying to better or selves (which is admirable), but it pointed out that many of who do so spend more time on that, then actually living our lives.
It made me want to take a step back and look at this life I am working towards, and consider that the life I already have is part of it. What is the story my journey is telling?
That is what I hope to work through with this new blog. To share with you my story, my journey, and how I process my growth, setbacks, and thoughts through journaling.
“So let’s talk about the question – what is your quest? It’s not hard to imagine that if we added up all the hours spent trying to figure out life, for some of us they would outweigh the hours spent actually living life. Really. Living. Life.” – Designing Your Life: How to build a well-lived, joyful life
This blog is the answer to that question.
