A LIFE COMPASSI spend part of my work life in coffee shops because I like the bustling atmosphere. But hang out long enough with your computer and you get asked what it is you do for a living. I get some funny looks when I share that I teach people how to journal for a living. It usually goes like this: Patron: “Like, a diary?”

Me: “Kind of.”

Patron: “Why do people need to learn how to journal? Isn’t it pretty straight forward?”

Me: “Not always. Do you journal?”

Patron: “No, I want to but there always seems to be something that gets in the way…”

Me: “This is why I teach it. So that there’s nothing left in the way!"

Keeping a journal certainly isn’t a new idea, or even a trendy one, but journals are powerful. They are a snapshot of your life and they help you explore it at the same time. Journal writing is so much more than record keeping or a diary entry. It's also a way for you to hear and to really listen to your own heart and mind.

This is why I love writing for places like elephantjournal.com so that I can spread this message to all journal keepers. You can read my recent post about enriching your life through your journal below.

The Prompted Life: 15 Ways to Jumpstart Your Journal and Enrich Your Life.

I mean... sure, journal writing should be easy but still your journal sits and collects dust. Helping you use this tool is something I love about my business. But the other part that I love is watching the success that my students have - like my client and journal student Dave.

Dave is a father to two boys and he recently opened his own fitness studio, a long time dream of his. Until the reality of running a new business with two kids under age 4 hit hard. He knew journaling could help him get organized, vent, feel more clear, etc. But he just wasn’t doing it. Finally he committed to just 5 minutes one day. I received this text from him almost immediately:

“OK, I really like journaling. I’m getting my balance back. It seems to take stress away. It gets those weird thoughts that spin in your head and serve no purpose other than to stress you out, out in the open where you can realize what to do with them. It’s a compass to more creativity and flow…”

It’s a compass. I love this feedback. Dave’s been hooked ever since.

So right now I'm enrolling a new class of students. I haven't done one of these open enrollments since April. But the deadline for enrolling is TOMORROW (Sunday, October 26th) at 9PM PDT U.S. time.

So if you want to join, it's really down to the wire. Now is the time to act.

Happy Journaling! -Andrea

P.S. From the looks of my schedule, the next time I'm going to do another full class is in the New Year…
