For the one who believes in it, a blessing can signal the start of a journey of transformation.*
The unrelenting day will soon begin with all its rush and push.
Perhaps bless yourself before entering the thrall … with some words, some quietness, some centring.
Allowing these to sink deep into you, shaping you towards shaping your day.
If you find some words that touch you deeply, you may also try writing them on a slip of paper and popping them into the storage of a jar, to be pulled out and blessed by on another day … which is what journaling can be about.
