In my desire to belong, I often felt I was wearing a mask and playing a role in someone else’s story. Journaling was my way into the deepest part of me, and my way out into the world.

Delving beneath masks and the roles we play is what journaling is all about. Getting to what we believe underneath what we think we believe. Dredging up and understanding emotions that are difficult to explain. Discovering unconscious assumptions that dictate our lives. And simply playing with ideas and concepts in creative ways on the way to figuring out who we are when we dive in, soul deep. In Finding More Me, through a combination of work and play, thinking and feeling, head and heart, journaling will take you on a worthwhile journey.

Are you ready to open some doors?
