Journaling with words

I've seen quite a few blogs and workshops lately focused on words when journaling. I have an entire journal dedicated to words, in fact the name of the journal is the Balance journal.  As usually happens,  it took me through a situation in my life where I was trying to do just that - balance my day job time with my artwork time.  My current journal also reflects what is going on in my life right now and is much influenced by a class I am taking.  The Universe is sending me all kinds of signals that I am acutely aware of.  All these signs are helping with my "homework".

One of my signs is a daily song that I receive every morning.  For many days the same song was coming to me so I decided to journal about it. It took me several days to really "get it" and put the lyrics to use. All the lyrics are written on the right page below. I also talked to three friends who got the "ah-ha" moment when I mentioned the words to this song as an example of what they were going thru.

I reminds me to face my fears and SHINE, rather than hiding behind the fears that keep me from moving forward.  Another sign was finding the Kelly Rae Roberts eBook, Flying Lessons, which asks similar questions as in my class. I am finding synchronicity everywhere these days, as mentioned in an earlier "beautiful" post.

This quote was in Kelly's book and again, I decided to create journal pages to highlight the message for me.
I am also experimenting with white pens, to find the ones I like best. So, hopefully, you can read this and ask yourself what makes you come alive! Let me know your fav white pen and what brings you alive! Happy journaling!

Nice work Bets! I've used that second quote on a page too :) Almost took this class series but already have enough on my plate for now.
