I love a guided journal. There are plenty out there, so it can be hard for new releases to stand out. Abrams + Chronicle have long been one of my favourite publishers and their journal collection is outstanding. They’re colourful, inspiring and empowering. Check out their latest release: Truth & Daring: A Journal for the Thoughtful & Bold.
Written by Sarah O’Leary Burningham (author of Girl to Girl, Boyology, and How to Raise Your Parents) and illustrated by Sarah Walsh (whose work includes colouring books for all ages, children’s board books, activity books, clothes, home accessories and greeting cards), this journal is a fantastic tool to help you get to know yourself a bit better and step outside of your comfort zone.
Each spread features a truth prompt on the left, encouraging you to reflect on a particular area of your life, and a related dare on the right, inviting you to take action and try something new. Topics include body positivity, writing your own mantra, giving yourself time to think, allowing yourself to try and fail, building your confidence and going on an adventure.
The journal also features eight tear-out pages with positive quotes from inspiring women, such as Emily Dickinson and Marie Curie.
Pretty awesome, right? I love completing guided journals and looking back on them later. They’re a great snapshot of your life and allow you to reflect on how far you’ve come. Have you ever completed one?
