Why Journaling Must Be Your Go-To Self-Care Habit As a Successful Female
I bet you already have a self-care routine.
You probably wake up early in the morning, get your fitness on, set intentions, get your coffee, and get your day going!
You’re busy. You’re successful, and you got shit to do.
You really don’t need to add to your routine because you have a full schedule and seriously, if you could buy more time, you would.
On the flip side, you’re busy, and you have things to do, but you’re feeling unfulfilled and unsatisfied with your career and life right now.
On the outside, everything looks Insta perfect, but you’re literally dying inside. You believed having all that success and having more money was the answer. Yet here you are, feeling like it’s not enough. Like this can’t be your life.
I get it.
I was there four years ago. Struggling to understand how the promotions and the money weren’t enough. How every single level I hit wasn’t enough to make me happy, it wasn’t enough to keep me at peace with myself.
This is why I went on the self-discovery journey. The journey made me look in the mirror, and my life transformed.
