You need to get a journal. Like yesterday.
I'm not saying everyone needs to go out and become poets or start publishing books. But you should realize that you have a lot of wise nuggets inside yourself and sometimes we just let them come and go through us and then we forget. And then you know, sometimes we start acting beneath our higher selves and we need to write that stuff down too to try to make sense of ourselves. I like to think there's two people inside me. They are always going back and forth. I am always my own teacher and my own rebellious student. Sometimes I reread things I've written months ago and it seems like lifetimes ago. Like I can't even imagine how I was feeling such a way. But I like to be able to read it and remember. I like to be able to see how far I've come every once in a while. Don't forget about that journey. While you're documenting all your successes in career areas or school or wherever you are, while you're playing the comparison game to everybody else, don't forget about the inner journey you're on. This is the most important thing. That is why I recommend you buy a journal. Plus who doesn't like a brand new spankin journal? Is it just me? I've literally written in journals my whole life. That probably doesn't come as a shock to most of you. But it did actually lead into poetry while I was going through my first break up. I think I might save that story for a YouTube video though. We got options.
Anyway, if writing doesn't come so naturally to you, here are some things you might want to begin with;
And lastly if you want a more structured routine, you can end your day in bed and check off the goals you accomplished or write an evaluation of how you felt throughout the day, what could have made your mood better, what you would like to improve tomorrow, etc. Think of writing as an important asset like yoga or meditation. Clearing the mind and cleaning the energy. Let me know if you try this out and send me pics on Instagram of your journal! I love receiving messages on my contact page as well so don't hesitate to drop a note. If I get enough questions I might start answering personals in my newsletter. That could be fun. Ok ta ta for now ! xx
