Lately, it’s been so easy to one day be on a high wavelength with myself and the next day not recognize my own thoughts. Couple that with being bombarded with messages from other people—what they think, what they perceive, what they want—and I forget to pay attention to the one voice that matters most…my own!
I believe that every now and then, we all go through periods of feeling as though we’ve lost touch with ourselves. And let’s face it, very few of us (especially me) make time for intentional self-discovery and overall wellness. Everyday we fulfill multiple roles for different relationships in our lives; consequently, forgetting about our most important relationship…the one we have with ourselves. Time and time again, there are moments when we prioritize meeting a deadline or helping loved ones versus acknowledging the noise of our conscience requesting us to take a step back and replenish. I have realized, after experiencing the disconnect that follows being negligent and ignoring my inner self, that we cannot effectively show up for others without first prioritizing our personal wellbeing—mentally, physically and spiritually.
Self- Discovery + wellness, the easy way
Ladies and gents, I’ve got good news! We don’t have to strike out on a random self-care voyage or some vague attempt to “find ourselves.” I mean you could, but honestly…who has time for that? Not to mention, we shouldn’t wait for a crisis to explore the wellness of our psyche—or the lack thereof—a little deeper. Journaling has always been a personal form of therapy that I hold very close to my heart. It can do unimaginable things for our health by offering a creative, cathartic release allowing us to disconnect from daily stresses. Whenever I’m in a place of uncertainty or feeling overwhelmed, I look to God and my journal for a release of clarity.
Recently, because I’ve been attentive to everything except my overall wellness, I’ve decided to direct my attention to rediscovering who I am and who I am trying to be by focusing on my mental, physical and spiritual wellness for the next 31 days. I invite you to take this journey with me by following the journal prompts below.
