All actions require creative energy. We seldom acknowledge this. -Julia Cameron
Journal-planning can be meditative, a way through — sparkly daring yourself to live more of what you love. A gentle and indirect means of noticing your heart desires + fostering a life intention.
You are the expert: curator of meaning and beauty; creator of circumstances; writer of plot twists.
And while you may be in the midst of circumstances that feel foreign or not of your own making — today is Day One, Braveheart.
Mary Oliver poetry / A Hidden Wholeness by Parker J. Palmer

One of the dictionary definitions of the verb “to claim” is: to take as the rightful owner; to assert in the face of possible contradiction. -Adrienne Rich
Journal-planning is a means of claiming your life and fulfilling the role of “rightful owner” — quarterly planning is way to ease into ownership amidst the static of contradictions.
