NOTEWORTHY QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE
“Here’s my definition of journaling. It’s the act of getting whatever is in your head out. And some days, like I just said, it might be a lot. In other days, it might not be that much, but those are both still the experience of journaling.”
“If you’re using a prompt, or a quote, or an affirmation, that can help dig up stuff within your subconscious that you might not realize is there if you’re just trying to think about it.”
“This gets to be whatever you want it to be and it doesn’t have to be complicated.”
“I think (journaling) really is just that time for myself where I can be whoever I am, gain the confidence to be whoever I am, and then take that out in the world.”
“One thing I do want to emphasize is (that) like anything, the more you do it, it will get easier.”
