“To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard.”
—Allen Ginsberg

One of my favorite Journal Pals is here on the blog today sharing her own blend of journal love. My friend, Kel Rohlfe, is a kindred creative, and word girl. I am grateful to know her and blessed that God allowed us to cross paths through blogging and our passions for writing, truth, and creative journaling. Kel has her own unique way with words, which makes for engaging and enjoyable conversation.

Here’s her share today for Write 31 Days/ Journal Enthusiast… More

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.

I have just returned from a weekend Writers’ Conference here in New England. My mind is still racing and I am heading into a busy week…I am hoping to catch a bit more time to process the wealth of information, beauty and diverse voices  I experienced during this  event. Meantime, as always finding the way back into my own rhythm includes a bit of poetry. Poetry is my pathway to clarity,  focus, vision, and possibility. I  hope to be sharing more about that soon…I promise big news is on the horizon, and I can’t wait to share it with you! One small step for this writer…and for you, my faithful  readers and friends!

Meanwhile,  I pray this simple affirming words breathe freshness into your day. For those of you who follow my Instagram account, this is my response to the Spontaneous Journal Prompt I shared on August 16th. I wrote it this morning, but it is the ruminating question  on my mind as I consider my  current writing life.
