Why Journaling?

My coach @Patricia Rogers has encouraged me to share more about what I do, and I chose this service you.

I will share the highlights, so I won’t bore you, and you can ask me any questions you may have.

I had asked God numerous times, what was my purpose? What did he want me to do? But I didn’t get an answer, or I didn’t get the answer I wanted. I am sure He gave me the answer, but I didn’t hear it because I was looking elsewhere.

My friends would tell me to follow my passion. I would say my passion/love is reading romance stories! How could I make money from that? No one had an answer.

After Christmas 2020, I became very ill. I may have had COVID, but I do not know because I didn’t go to the hospital.

During those weeks, I had several conversations with my Heavenly Father. I began by thanking Him for my life and the many blessings he had bestowed on me. My most important blessings are the family He gave me. There are many other things he blessed me with, but not without some struggle. Over the next few days, I will share some of those struggles regarding starting my business with you.

I know you want to know what happened while I was sick and how I got into journaling and sharing that information with you and others. During my conversations with God, I kept hearing this soft voice saying “journal” repeatedly.

I asked my Father if he wanted me to journal and why. I could not think of how I could make money from journaling. However, I decided to give it a try.

A friend, whose name I can’t say without their permission, reached out to me because they were going through some rough stuff, which put them in a deep depression. I suggested we get together to talk and journal. I can’t say what took place, but I am happy to say this person is back to being a productive member of society.

That is how I got started, but it didn’t end there. Other opportunities came my way because of journaling. Don’t get me wrong; it has been a rough road. There have been times when I have had to fight my doubts and have some serious conversations with my Father. It was so slow going. No one seemed interested, but I struggled to stay with it even when I felt like giving up and discouraged because I didn’t have something more glamorous and exciting. But something would not let me quit because of the benefits of putting words on paper. There is power in sharing your thoughts, even if only with yourself.

Over the next few days, I will share some opportunities that came my way because of journaling and the hardships.

Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
