EVERYDAY I WRITE THE BOOK...
Without a doubt, journaling has definitely been the top inspiration for everything I do. I would also encourage you to carry your journal at all times and have it available to you during the day. Some people are very structured regarding when and where they journal. I would invite you just to make sure you choose a time when you will be uninterrupted. I have noticed in my work that when clients write down and note their thoughts and feelings and record their emotions, their growth is more sustainable and enduring.
Remember, when you journal, bring your whole self to the process.
