The Start of my Daily Journal
For some reason, it’s getting a little easier for me to wake up in the morning. I was hitting a point where I didn’t want to get up. I just wanted to lay in bed as long as possible. I think now that I’ve found something that makes me want to wake up in the morning and keeps my head spinning at night with ideas has helped in some ways. It’s a blessing and a curse because now I can’t sleep having all these ideas through my head night that keep me up and lowkey wake me up in the middle of the night. Now I'm still trying to get myself to not be on my phone and do something productive again after I get done getting for work, but I mean it’s a start.
Last night, I decided I would start journaling on a regular basis. I figure it’s a start to being productive, add self care and bring some structure into my life. Especially in the mornings. I’ve always jotted down my thoughts and emotions, but it was never something consistent. Always sporadic and when something hit me like a train. Journaling used to be somewhat of an outlet for me when I wanted to get things off my chest but couldn’t express them to others. On the other hand, the bad thing about was that I wasn’t being true to myself sometimes. There would be times I generate a almost fictional story just to help me get by. Times there were things in my life that I didn’t agree with and tbh I was ashamed of so I tried to sugar coat it to make it easier to read, you know, in case someone decided to open my journal and read it. I soon realized this wasn’t healthy.
Just because I was journaling and writing something down doesn’t mean it’s true. I understand there’s stuff about The Laws of Attraction that states that if you believe it enough it will happen. But you can’t change the past. That’s something I had to what I had to wrap my head around. There are limitations.
I’m hoping by journaling everyday something good will come out of it. Maybe I won’t be so scatter brained, maybe it’ll help me manifest the life I want to live, but most importantly maybe it’ll not only provide value to me but others around me.
I’ve noticed creating a Gratitude Journal and writing 10 things to be grateful for has helped me live a happier life. Even though it’s only been about a couple weeks. I do see a change. So maybe jotting my mind down will help alleviate some of my restlessness, creative blocks, wandering imagination and brain and bring some sort of piece and structure into my life.
So this is the start of my daily journal and whatever comes to my mind to help ease the chaos.
