Do you use a journal? I have written in a journal off and on since I was 10 years old.  Over the years these journals have varied from a little green book with a lock and key to keep my brother out, to spiral bound notebooks and even journal software so I can write on my computer.

Writing is a powerful tool to express our emotions, organize our thoughts and even work through grief.  Today's email and video link talk about some of the benefits of grief journaling.  Join me next week for a free teleclass to expand your journaling skills...
