Creative Journaling

Posted on January 21, 2013 by Martenson Family of Funeral Homes

There are times when you are grieving and you may not feel comfortable with sharing in a group or talking one on one may not be enough for you. One way is to journal your personal thoughts after the death of a loved one.

The entries don’t have to be long or detailed, they can be what ever emotions you are feeling on that particular day or you may choose to “scribble” a few words or doodle on the pages. Remember there is no right or wrong way only your way!

A good start can be some of the following to aid you in the start of your endeavor.

Today I feel like….

The day my spouse, friend or child died I felt like….

You may want to reflect on a favorite quote or Bible verse, many find comfort in the 23rd Psalm.

Whatever you choose to write about let your emotions flow, whether they be positive, negative, or indifferent. There may be days you don’t feel like making an entry and that is okay too there will be days like this. In a time frame of your choosing take a look at the entries you have made to see your progression through your grief.
