I call bullshit on individuals who claim they cannot “journal”. As my best friend Julia Cameron writes: “If you can’t think of anything to write, then write “I can’t think of anything to write”.
Mark-making is also well under- utilized as a self-inquiring tool for personal growth.
It’s this black and white philosophy that 89% of our planet hold, that one of “I am not creative type”, “not for me” and the “how would I even go about this” thats led me to create my free guide to creative liberation. “Marks & Doodles” which btw, you can find it as a permanent instalment on my website here:
Journalling and Mark-Marking are really you, healing in motion.
Available to you in this permission, on your pages, a brain dump! And when you cannot put words to it, you can surely put marks to it! It’s a powerful thing to see your life on paper, to let it unfold in all it’s wonder and imperfection. Right, Sark?
I love my Estelle Thomson Art Permission Slip inscribed inside!
Let this journal be the roots
Let it help me grow.
Let it remind me that I loved.
Let it rip my heart wide open.
Between these pages, anything I want can be released
Why am i scared?
Why do i hide?
It’s now or never.
Show up. Be Loud.
I am ready to feel awake and alive, but from inside.
I understand that self-love requires self-work.
Let this journal witness to my words, stories, doodles, sketches, and paintings.
Bringing forth, whats within me:
I tell my story.
And this will change my life and the world.
