Only you know your story.  Isn’t it about time you wrote it from your heart?

The writing prompts and exercises shared in Write from Your Heart will help you understand your past, present and future exploring various journaling methodologies.

The words of your heart matter – Now is the time to set them free!

Your words and your story matter

JOURNALING – HOW TO GET STARTED

What you need to get started:

A desire to make a positive change for yourself first and foremost. 

  • This book
  • Your amazing self
  • Your Thoughts 
  • Your Heart
  • A sense of curiosity
  • Pen & paper

Keep journaling simple: Pen and paper, journal, loose-leaf paper or notebook is all that’s needed.  You may wish to carry a pocketbook or diary around with you or by your bedside to make notes and journal entries when the writing mood hits, and I promise you, it will. 

The more you write, the more you want to.  In my experience, you may find yourself reaching out for your journal as the best means of personal expression and support. Your journal is there for you when you wish to speak freely.

JOURNALING TIPS

  • Write every day (start with ten minutes and build up to twenty minutes or more)
  • Make it easy (pen and paper or notebook)
  • Write from your heart uncensored
  • Care more about substance and less about style, grammar and punctuation
  • Recognise the importance of journaling and how regular self-expression can improve your life

Copy the following prompts into the front of your journal for easy reference

  • How will this journal piece support me as an author?
  • What benefits did I gain from writing this journal entry?
  • What did I find particularly interesting about this piece?
  • What have I learnt about myself personally or professionally in this piece of writing?
  • Based on my experience and my journal entry, who else may benefit from reading my words?
  • How can I best use my experience in the form of a book to inspire my reader?
  • How is my life experience translatable into a critical message for those reading?
  • What words of wisdom can I share as an author to help others heal, evolve and transform? 
  • What ideas and themes do I notice for future books, blogs and topics to share with my audience?
  • What can I choose to do now do to make the rest of my day, evening, week, month or year ahead even better after considering what I have recorded?

Whatever life challenges you have overcome, the ‘poop’ you may be trying to wade through right now or your fears for the future, please know and remember, you carry the solution to any problem inside yourself. 

Benefits of using Write from Your Heart processes :

‘’Everything is easy with your uncomplicated guidance, thanks.’’ Lara 

‘’Thank you so much, Wendy, for your wealth of knowledge provided.’’ Loretta

‘’Your programme gave me the new perspective I needed to write and publish my first book.  Thank you, Wendy.’’ Jillian

I encourage you to use the exercises shared throughout Write from Your Heart to bring balance to your thinking and activate the words of your heart.  In doing so, when you write uncensored, you learn about yourself and the world at large.  Take time to understand your behaviours, stressors, emotions, thoughts, feelings and motivators. 

Writing about the crud of life as well as the juicy and fun parts allows you to become more solution-focused than problem-centred. The more you write the easier it becomes. Books are made of writing.

We are all authors. Isn’t it about time your wrote the story of your life?

You find many in roads and out roads through journaling which bring new beginnings and undiscovered horizons for writing opportunities.  You may even find the thought of the uncertainty becomes exciting for you and welcome each new day knowing whatever happens you can handle it.

All changes, both the planned and shocking ones, require inner mastery as does writing and completing a book.   I have written Write from Your Heart while amid a global crisis. My hope is, with awareness, you too can adapt and gain flexibility when life is unknown and take one day at a time savouring the positives in life.

Some of my clients using the journaling process alongside coaching and therapeutic support state they sleep better and have an improvement in energy and find the joy of life returns. 

If you know, before starting your writing journey, you will benefit from my coaching and mentoring to include emotional support do reach out to discuss my range of support options. www.wendyfry.com
