Journaling exercises for International Women’s Day

It’s been a wonderful day celebrating womanhood with other Swindon women here in our corner of north east Wiltshire.

The workshop was warm, companionable and productive, with everyone participating in journaling exercises using the following kick-off phrases:

The best thing about being a woman is…

I can’t imagine living without…

The most important thing to me is…

The simplest step I can take next is…

And we also tried communing with our creative selves using the prompt Dear Creative Self. Two or three of our number discovered that our creativity is a bit narked that we aren’t making better use of it!

Before the Day draws to a close, try writing a letter to womanhood, addressing it Dear Sister. What message can you glean from her?

And last but not least thanks to all those lovely ladies who came along to the workshop today. You make my work a joy.
