My Journaling Roots: Books on Journaling

IMG_7232

 

Today, I’m reaching back in time and sharing my strongest journaling influences. In my early twenties, I worked full-time in the fitness field as a Personal Trainer, and Fitness Instructor. Eventually I  held the position of Personal Training Director, helping to mentor and train up and coming staff and other fitness influencers in that field. I know what it is to be an influencer, and to be influenced, to inspire and be inspired.

This morning I finally sat to work on a poem I wrote for inclusion in a local anthology. As I looked at the piece, I began to change, add, remove, re-read and reconsider my words.

PicMonkey Collageccccssssbbb

Yesterday I stated that the best way to celebrate your birthday every day is by giving yourself away. I want to clarify. I’m not talking about selling yourself out, or being taken advantage of in any way- don’t misunderstand.

I am talking about being a willing giver.

We all have something to give, don’t we? Whether time, talent, cash, caring or creativity. None of us is ever truly empty-handed.
