Inspirational Post: Journal Writing

Hello Everyone!



Today I have a long overdue inspirational post, Journal Writing. Lately I've really been in a bit of slump and sometimes that can lead me to feel uninspired or even unmotivated. Don't get me wrong I take care of whatever needs to be done in my life, but sometimes I just feel really emotionally drained.

I was talking with my good friend Ashley recently and we got on the topic of Journaling. I mentioned how I felt that I used to find Journaling very therapeutic. I first started Journaling when I was 9 or 10 years old. Back then I wrote more poetry and created drawings, but as I got older I used to write down my thoughts. I feel like this...even though in the traditional sense a journal is for writing down your thoughts,  I feel a journal is whatever you want it to be.

You may remember the picture of this journal that I posted on INSTAGRAM back in November. Since we're in a new year, I figured now is a good time to start back writing.


Here is my journal that I'll be using





I got this journal from Victoria's Secret year last and I haven't used yet. I'm thinking about using it as a dream/goals book. As we get older sometimes it's easy to forget our dreams or lose sight of some goals if we become unmotivated etc. I just thought this would be a good idea to write down those things as well.






Do you find journal writing useful? Also, this week is Inspirational Week on my blog! So stay tuned!

Journaling is good to keep long of your day, inspiration and ideas. I keep ideas and poems.

Journaling is a great way to start off the new year! Both of your journals are pretty! Great post!

Pilar said...

I agree! I was thinking about getting back into writing poems as well for my journal! I use to write poems when I was younger.

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Ashley said...

Great post Pilar! I can't wait to start my journal for this year. I love the idea of a dreams and goals journal too because your right that sometimes we can lose sight of the things we want. Even if our dreams and goals change, it would be nice to go back and read that journal so we can remember wha lt our dreams were at a certain point in our life!

Thanks! I hope you enjoy journal writing! I haven't started mine yet, but I'm trying to start writing this week! Good point, I usually go back and read what I write. I think writing down dreams and goals and rereading them would be helpful!

I must be the odd one out because I can never get into writing a diary or journal. I've tried in the past when I was in high school because all my friends were into it but it was just not for me. :-/

Margo @ PrettyPanda said...

The journals are so so cute!! I should get back into journal writing. I used to do it so often! Thanks for this inspiring post Pilar :)

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

Lol! You're not the odd one out! Not everyone is into journal writing, I know that for a few years I strayed away from it! Everyone has different preferences and that's okay too!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

Thanks and you're welcome! Glad that you found this post inspiring!

I've done the journaling that is talked about in The Artist's Way before. It was called Morning Pages. It's basically just writing 3 pages of your thoughts or whatever's in your head first thing in the morning. The results were pretty interesting! I should start doing that again.

Pilar said...

That's sound interesting! I've written in a journal in the morning before, but not in the way you described! I think I'll give that a try sometime!

Kim Alston said...

When I did journal, it helped me out a lot. It's a great way to gather your thoughts and create a path to what you want Pilar.
