Journal to the Rescue
What do you do when you're having one of those days? Your tendinitis is acting up and the cortisone shot just makes it worse, you go 15 rounds with your teenage son over video games and it's been raining for two days. Your heart aches and you feel powerless to change things that are beyond your control. You feel like burying your face in your pillow and having a good cry. But then...you remember the "Collage Play with Crowabout" that you'd decided against this week....you couldn't quite drum up an idea for the images given. But in an effort to find solace you turn to your journal with collage elements, paint, markers and glue stick in hand...and if for only an hour or so, you forget the tears that are just behind your eyes. If only for an hour or so.
Sometimes journaling is the best medicine.
