Journaling is one of my favorite forms of meditation. During my adolescence, I found solace in a blank piece of paper. I found my words well before I found my voice, and I’m pretty sure I made it into my thirties without a therapy bill simply because I put pen to paper. I learned who I was and how to tease apart the complexities of my emotions from cursive lines of ink. It created clarity, and understanding, and self acceptance. So now, inspired by a coaching colleague, and as we enter into the season of gratitude, I am reminded of my own thankfulness. As you read this list, I encourage you to go beyond “good health” and “a roof over my head,” into the deeper corners of your heart. What are you thankful for?
