I love to write resumes. It's not the act of composing bullets, launching the message of each with a strong and specific verb following it with appropriate key words and phrases ... it's what the resume achieves on my client's behalf that I really love. Helping people land better jobs, dream jobs, better paying jobs, or ones that align with their motivations, ethics, and interests - that's what drives my enjoyment.
But, I do love to write. Cover letters, professional biographies, and this blog bring me more writing joy than the resume itself, but still, it's a particular genre of writing and as I said, I do love to write.
On Wednesday, March 4th, for those who live in Waterloo Region, I will be leading a journaling event. You can check out the details on the Waterloo Public Library Schedule of Events page. (Make sure you scroll to March.)
Beginning at 6:30 and concluding at 8:30, I will walk you through a journaling ritual. It's based on my experience of Mary Ann Moore's writing circles. Mary Ann is a delightful poet who lives in beautiful Nanaimo, B.C., one of my favourite places on this planet! And she is my journaling mentor.
Journaling is my go-to writing form for diving deep within and getting in touch with me. To quote Mary Ann:
Do you wonder in the midst of your busy life, whether you are fulfilling your purpose and if so, just what is that purpose?
If you're curious to explore how journaling can lead you to self-discovery, uncover hidden truths, and promote self-healing, growth, and in my experience, an incredible lightness of spirit, please join me! Here's a link to the registration form for this particular event.
Although no writing skill is needed, a fondness for putting pen to paper is recommended.
