Finding Your Passion. Make Time for You.

Taking time for self-care journaling is an ideal way to begin awakening your passions. The first step in the passion project series will be to spend time thinking only about what makes your soul happy.

However, it’s important to keep an open mind. Just because you may find a common theme in your self-care journaling surrounding yoga, for example, don’t think that yoga must be your only road and surely swimming, for example, is not.

The more activities I try and the more I get out of my comfort zone, the more I amaze myself.

For example, I would always tell you I don’t like the outdoors. Unless I’m laying by the beach in a hammock with a drink in my hand, do not get me near nature. I’m simply not an “outdoorsy” person.

Then suddenly at the age of 40, I describe myself as an avid hiker. I’m flicking ticks of myself almost daily and breaking through spiderwebs without a thought when the last 4 decades it would have had me running back inside my air-conditioned home.

Purpose of Self-Care Journaling for Passion Project

The purpose of self-care journaling through these questions below is simply to open your mind and begin to focus on YOU. Most likely if you focus on yourself at all anymore it’s more about your problems. Not you as a person.

So grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine and print out the questions below from the Single Mom Toolbox and spend some time focusing only on you.

Squeeze in 30 minutes at lunch or before the kids get up one morning. 

If you hate writing, you can just think through these questions. But printing them out is best because you can review your answers and see if your perspective has changed over time.
