The Glow Up SZN: Why Journaling is Therapeutic




My healing survival kit consists of journaling, therapy, and praying!

Besides being a blogger and content creator, I also utilize journaling to help me vent, grow, and self-reflect.

I've been consistently journaling since November 2020, when my life was flipped upside down. Journaling, praying, and therapy helped me shed the weight of my mind, body, and spirit. I took my journal everywhere I traveled to because I needed to dump my hurt, pain, happiness, uncertainty, darkness, and craziness on paper.

Journaling helped with my clarity, spirituality, and connection to myself and God.

Now I have all my students who take my interpersonal skills class journal about their lived experiences, and they enjoy it.

I'm on journal number 3, and I can't wait to pin more dopeness. I thoroughly enjoy witnessing my growth and glow up even though healing sucks and is long-suffering.

Do you journal? If so, what therapeutic change have you witnessed within yourself? Drop a comment in the comment section!

Sample Journal Prompts:

1. When you look in the mirror, what is the first thing you see? A problem? A friendly face? Something to criticize?

2. Do I radically accept who I am?

3. What is one thing you have learned about yourself this year? The Good? The Bad? The Ugly? The Resiliency you didn't think you possessed?

4. What is one brutal truth. Do you need to face but refuse to admit?

Brown Girl Mental Health Reminder


Hey Brown Girl Tribe! Just a reminder that it’s okay to take a mental health day, week or vacation. You don’t get a badge of honor for being overworked, overwhelmed, or burnout.

Use that PTO
Take those naps
Hydrate
Take a shower
Change your sheets
Go get a check-up (physical, emotional, spiritual)
Check-in with an EAP Counselor or therapist
Don’t try to be Superwomen or Superman.
That job will move on with or without you!

FLY Girl Goddess: Free Thought, Writing Flow

As I lay in bed, twisting my hair while thinking about why this dude pulled away, why am I focusing my attention on him, anyway? I realize that I have to surrender to the divine feminine energy goddess flow continually. As I fully and constantly evolve to that flow, I must remember to be in my softness, natural state of healing, clearing, and tapping within. I have realized that I’m a whole goddess with a dope flow and energy, and I will never be forgotten by anyone who came into my path. When I take ownership of the divine feminine energy goddess flow, I realize how I open myself up to radical acceptance, forgiveness, inner beauty, boundaries, and more. When you are a divine feminine energy goddess, you are a trailblazer and legacy maker. Everyone shouldn’t have accessibility to you because some are attracted to the unfamiliar light. It doesn’t come in a package that is direct, delicate, and signed on delivery. Divine feminine energy flow has the courage, vulnerability, and healing persistence to help keep you flowing. You aren’t for everybody; every (wo)man can’t handle your versatility, assertiveness, and timeless beauty. They want to take you down, but you didn’t come here to fuck around and be played with. Divine feminine energy goddess flow, you are here on a whole life mission, God gave you the vision, so continue to press onward and forward. Don’t ever allow anyone to disrupt your divine feminine energy goddess flow.


You are unforgettable and a force to be reckoned with. It’s time for you to receive all the love, energy, positivity, goodness, kindness that you have been putting out. Are you ready to receive it back?


Are you tapped into your fly girl goddess flow?
