A quiet journaling series. For the month of January. xo
There are years that ask questions and years that answer.
~ Zora Neale Hurston ~
Questions and answers are generally satisfying when they work in tandem; even if the answer is unfavorable, at least there’s some closure. Sometimes, however, questions stand independently, and that can be uncomfortable.
Jot down some questions you have today. Your questions can be anything at all. From what should I make for dinner to how can I volunteer in my community to what’s the meaning of life. Try not to censor your questions. Just let them arise. Jot them in your journal or on a scrap of paper or on a paper napkin, if that’s what is handy. Just write them down. Out of head, onto paper. See your questions. Consider them.
You might immediately start brainstorming ideas for some of the questions. Great, write those ideas down. Some of the questions might remain quiet on your page, without immediate answers. That’s great too (really). Read through your questions slowly, maybe holding hands over your heart. Let the (at least for now) unanswerable questions rest on your page. Let them be. Remind yourself that it’s okay not to have answers for every question. Allow asking questions (and not expecting immediate answers) to be part of your journey.
I hope you enjoy this quiet bit on this Friday (or whenever you find it).
sending a little love your way, m
