Antiquaria Journal Club | Week Eighteen

“At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have
lighted the flame within us.”
Albert Schweitzer

Hey there Journal Gang! We’ve been reveling in the warming days and extra sunlight over this past week - have you? Spending more time outside has been so nice, and much needed. As we enter a new week, we’re appreciating the outlet of our journals more than ever. Journaling is an excellent way to process thoughts and emotions. In times of many changes and uncertainty, such as these, self-reflection and expression are vital to coping and adapting to new situations. 2020 is turning out to be an interesting year so far, indeed.

A core part of being a human is the depth, complexity and value of our relationships with one another. The human spirit needs to connect, and as social beings, we require that to thrive! In times of hardship and uncertainty, our friends, families and connection with society as a whole can build us up, give us strength and help us navigate through uncharted territory. That’s why this week, we want to spend some time reflecting on what we love most about the people we love most.

Who are your friends and family? What traits do they have that you admire, respect and adore? Why? What does family mean to you? Even though we may not be able to gather physically in these times, we can still nurture those connections through appreciation and hey, maybe even some good old fashioned snail mail! What better way to brighten someone’s day and let them know you’re thinking of them from afar, than with a sweet sentiment popping up in their mailbox? Compassion and emotional support contribute to a sense of well-being and provide strength on even the most difficult of days.

So write all about it, send some snail mail, shoot a quick text, call those you love - and tell them why they are awesome! We’re wishing you all the health and happiness.

All the very best and Happy Journaling,
The Antiquaria Team
