In February, Cindy, Debbie and I decided to create a healing journal where we would explore (and heal) some heartbreaks. This ended up being so healing for me since I was in the midst of being repatriated to Canada from Shanghai because of the COVID-19.

I used a Field Notes brand notebook to document this. It is the perfect small size for these heartbreaks. Being put in such an emotional situation meant I felt a lot of things that definitely became fodder for this journal.

It was so healing to get all of this out and unto these pages. A journal that we can now close!

I feel like this journal is an accurate day to day depiction of little aggressions coming at me and from me in this time of feeling overwhelmed. I am so glad I had this space.

I am grateful that it is full and I hope that we will get news soon of our return home to Shanghai.
