You are the only Author
Once you realize you’re the only author of your story, it gives you a sense of power, a purpose and improvement of your mental well being. Only you decide what happens in your story. And though you may not be living it at the present moment it’s never to late to start again.
Not tomorrow..you’re the Author today
You don’t have to wait until everything is perfect to begin the practice of journaling. It’s the best way to rewrite your story. You don’t have to have a degree, be the perfect weight, have a new love, a new place to live, etc. You start today, and then I highly recommend daily editing.
I truly believe the art of writing can change your life. Whether you buy a leather bound beautiful journal, make one stapled together with paper, or just use google docs, get your feelings down on paper. They don’t have to make sense, you don’t have to be a great writer or poet, just write them down. It’s a great way to really see what’s going on in your life and where you need to make some changes.
Author of gratitude
One of the best things you can do for your own personal/mental health is to write down things you’re grateful for. Some days you may find that difficult, you’ve had a really shit day, things have sucked, people have been mean, etc. But really dig deep here, there’s always something to be grateful for. Maybe something as small as being grateful you have a warm home, or maybe you’re just grateful that you survived the day, etc. When you write down things you’re grateful for, it makes your heart a little warmer. You start to see the world in a new light. Not everything is doom and gloom. You really do have something to live for, there is a higher purpose.
I truly hope you start today. Write your story, rewrite it often, and continue editing.
