soothe pandemic pandemonium with your words and your wisdom.
New chapters in our lives and in our world call on us to find new words.
As worries swirl, isolation looms, and losses mount it is easy to feel lost and hopeless. Yet there is something you can do to find direction and meaning: you can make time and space to reflect and reorient through the practice of journaling.
Words have the power to heal us twice: once in the writing...and yet again when we read them back. Words from our own hands can soothe us, shape us, and open us up to more life-giving perspectives and possibilities.
I'd like to help you discover your words and your wisdom as you adjust and adapt to this wild, uncharted territory you're navigating right now. I've created a simple yet powerful set of writing prompts to help you quick-start an effective, creative journaling journey that will both ground you and guide you onward.
"Word Balm Journal Prompts" will gently move you through six themes:
-Beginning: Naming Our Condition
-Peace: Balm For Our Fears
-Connection: Balm For Isolation
-Comfort: Balm For Our Losses
-Adaptation: Creating New Balms
-Hope: Envisioning Healing
