The biggest reality check for us, men or women, is when we make a conscious effort to journal our thoughts and experiences of the day.
The truth can always be manipulated and excused in the mind, as the mind is driven by a hundred forms of fear, anxiety, and resentments. However, when journaling, the truth cannot be altered as it has been written down. Typically speaking, You stop the mind from traveling far from reality with its made up “stories.”
When journaling, you want to see where in your day you were you selfish, dishonest, fearful and/or resentful, as all of these physiological thieves rob the mind of it’s ability to think clear and prevent any personal growth/wellness.
Furthermore, make a list of things you are grateful for, then relax and release. For those individuals who have a spiritual connection with the universe, this is a great time to ask that energy to help remove all that is blocking you from growing.
Journaling is meant to be fun, so write without any filters and don’t worry about spilling the truth.
