Vision Board Journaling
Winter has settled in here in upstate New York. On an energetic level, winter marks a natural inclination for mammals to slow down and conserve resources. Many creatures enter into a stasis or hibernation period. There is so much that we can learn by following these seasonal changes. We too should slow down, take a moments pause and reflect upon the past year and the coming year ahead.
This is an excellent time to either begin a journaling practice or prepare for a fresh start in a new one. Reflect upon the memories that brought joy and inspiration to you. Continue on with things that you learned, either about yourself or about the world you live in and explore what kind of impact that had on you. Then, take time to think about the moments that were less than satisfactory. What didn't work out? Without internalizing blame, think about ways you can move forward from those experiences. Whether that's attempting new strategies, making life changes or setting personal boundaries, what we consider our defeats or hardships actually cause us to make important changes in our lives.
Going into a new year consider what strengths and skills you're taking with you. What is the fuel you will turn to for empowerment? What are your healthy coping mechanisms for when things get stressful or frustrating? Use journaling as a tool of self exploration and organizing your thoughts. Use your writing as a powerful tool to set your intentions as well as understand the person you are evolving into.
