I’m challenging myself, for 30 days, to journal every day.
Care to join me?
I, like many of you, have attempted to journal in the past. It always starts out great. I have the journal and the motivation. Then a few days pass, and I quit writing. I vow to myself that I’ll do it tomorrow. The next day rolls around and I say the same thing. A constant loop of the phrase, “Tomorrow, I promise!”.
Nothing ever gets written! Months have passed when I finally realize I haven’t wrote anything. Mentally kicking my own butt for putting it off and not getting any of our memories on paper.
Lately, I’ve been tossing around the idea to start journaling again. Just been waiting for the right moment to start. (Procrastination at its finest!) Then a few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a post by Vivien Reis.
She started journaling again, after years of not journaling. She proceeded to tell us that by journaling again she was able to work through something that had been bothering and holding her back for almost 4 years! Yes, that’s right 4 YEARS!! Simply by writing through it. Let’s just say I was inspired!
She then challenged herself, for the next 30 days, to make journaling a daily habit. And now, that’s what I’m going to do! If she can, then why can’t I?
So here it is, my 30 day challenge for myself…
Starting: August 30th, 2017, and writing until, September 29th, 2017
I will journal every single day, whether it be one sentence to a few pages, I will write something.
I’m choosing to make journaling a daily habit by the end of September and hope to accomplish the following:
- Clear my mind and de-stress
- Record precious memories and thoughts
- To have a place that is entirely my own and free of other peoples opinions
- Lastly, a way to enhance my writing
In 30 days, I will check back in with my progress!
Now, my question to you… What are you waiting for?
Will you join me?
