you will find them. If there are places to celebrate joy, you will find
them. If there is a path or direction waiting for you, you will find it. Journal

day you will leave having discovered something about yourself and with tools
you can use to continue your journal journey on your own. No writing experience
is necessary, just a curiosity and an open mind and an open heart.
