The SheWorth Journal by Kimberly Mueller is unquestionably one of the best I’ve come across for helping women discover their “intrinsic self-worth”, as the description promises, and doing it in a way that doesn’t require hours of wading through heavy psychology explaining why and how we may have lost our self-worth in the first place. From the first few pages in, we are treated to meaningful and beautifully illustrated word graphics sprinkled here and there throughout the “education” section to remind us that we don’t need to keep proving ourselves, to trust our own instincts and to choose ourselves first. This Education section is short but jam-packed with evidence-based information written in a simple, conversational tone with a vocabulary easily understood by anyone.
Quickly learn about “neuroplasticity”....a big word, yes... but just a term to explain how pliant our brains are as they change according to what we see, hear, and experience daily. Ever notice how quickly young teens adopt the behaviors, language, likes and dislikes of their peers? That’s their “mirror neurons” at work, Mueller tells us, and it’s not just limited to teens. The thing is, at some point, even adults need to ask themselves if this copy-cat behavior is serving or depleting them? And while we know we should trust our inner voices, we need to monitor that “internal audience” barometer at all times. These are just a few of the concepts psychologist Kimberly Mueller quickly shares with us before letting us loose to fill the remaining pages with our own thoughts on each day.
The daily, but undated journal sections will be familiar to many of us who like to journal. But following this section, Mueller invites us to fill up the blank pages with our own creative musings. Before writing this review, I decided to get some feedback on the SheWorth Journal from my daughter. She felt the section allotted to creative musings set this journal apart from others she’s used. As a songwriter, this was her favorite section. And we both loved the last section where we could enter “random musings” at any time. Let’s face it: our minds are in constant motion with thoughts tumbling over each other. So often, a great idea or thought is forgotten because it wasn’t written down. As Mueller states, “the act of putting pen to paper can help you clarify your thoughts and emotions.” So true! Try it. You’ll like it!
