Let’s Write Life is an expressive, bold, and fun journaling company where you will explore inspirational journals, unique writing tools, and journaling events that will empower you to restore hope to heal, build confidence, and be motivated to pick up your pen and fully discover the limitless purpose your life.
On today’s show Latonia tells us about a time where she felt trapped in her story. Depression hit hard and she could not escape the 24/7 negative thoughts that told her she wasn’t good enough. After taking some time to write about all the pain she was feeling she decided to try something new. She thought, “What if I could make some small changes? What if I could start writing down the things that cause me pain and back away from them? What if I could make lists of things that make me feel good and make sure to do these things more?”
It’s not a quick or easy process. In fact it is a life-long process. But in time she realized that she gravitated more towards the people, places, and hobbies that made her feel good. And with these small changes her mood started to change.
If you are a writer or have been putting off starting your journal you won’t want to miss Latonia’s story.
