"Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life."

-- Mary Manin Morrissey

Journaling is a great way to release and let go. To get things off your chest. Our minds are our own worst enemies. The same thoughts go round and round in the same old ways and keep us stuck.

If something bothers you, write about it. Get it out so you can see it from a different perspective. Let it out. Let it go.

Owning and healing your pressure cooker is an important step in claiming your power, building your esteem and making your stand.

  • Such an important reminder. Thank you for sharing. I agree that journaling is an excellent healing tool. Not only does it help to just release some of the pain going on inside our "pressure cooker", but like you pointed out, it is helpful to view it from a different perspective. I also appreciate the reminder of journaling in general, as it is one of the first things to slip of your plate when the going gets tough again.

    Thank you.

  • So glad you found it useful! The best thing about any type of journal is no judgement so you are free to be you!!!
