People are curious.
As am I.
The journal I began a short while ago is intriguing. For others and for myself.
I begin with a question (usually starting with “why”) that raises conflict. Quite often the question is personal and the conflict is within myself. Others are related to friends, vocation, and life in general.
I ask why, then jot down an answer. I do the same five times. At that point I am probably getting to the actual answer, or at least to a root of the problem.
This may be something you would like to try. The exercise is not easy, and usually by the time I hit the third “why”, I’m having to confront the real me! And that is not always easy, because I know I will probably have to rethink how I live my life as I go deeper – and have to repent of attitudes and actions that have become ingrained in my life.
Is it worth it? I think so – and so I continue!
