Prompt #14 by Holly

Reflect upon those thoughts from your very own “itty-bitty-shitty committee” inside your head. Write them down in big loopy lettering, angry lettering, or however it feels best for you. Then turn your journal one quarter turn and write those thoughts over them. Do it again and again until you have replaced those thoughts with an affirming thought for yourself. Write that affirmation boldly on the page or over the hidden journaling.
