It’s week 3 in the Wreck This Journal Book Blogging journey: http://tnc-wreckthisjournal.blogspot.com. This week I started wrecking my journal on June 15 while listening to the Come Alive CD by The Roots. My favorite songs for wrecking my journal were:
- “All I Know”
- “Y’all Know Who”
- “What You Want”
- “Love of My Life”
Do you have a Wreck This Journal playlist?
My favorite journal wrecking activities were:
- p. 58 – Pretending to doodle on the back on an envelope with an orange magic marker (lots of hearts, scribbles, and square boxes).
- p. 98 – The page of good thoughts was filled with reminder that God is love in pink magic marker.
- p. 146 – The space for negative comments and what is your inner critic saying awakened my inner critic Broomhilda. Click here to learn more about her: http://kiamshacom.blogspot.com/search?q=broomhilda. Broomhilda criticized me for writing a book (my new poetic memoir – That Which Awakens me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir – Summer 2009) with too many pages that folks won’t read. She accused me of pretending to be more than I am. She also told me I wasn’t ready to shiine. She released her usual criticism about my muffin Buddha belly and told me my current work with my life coach Yael to tone my belly and improve my core and self-acceptance were worthless.
My inner critic Broomhilda
This week was full of insights. The inner critic exercise was the main source of the insights. I’m glad I am working with my life coach Yael to strengthen my self-acceptance. That’s why I am smiling right now about Broomhilda’s criticisms. They let me know I am on the right path to shining my beauty and sharing my gifts.
I will visit more Wreck This Journal sistalove blogs next week after I get back from Chicago and the Blogging While Brown conference (www.bloggingwhilebrown.com).
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your day and weekend!
Peace and Creativity,
