There are many thoughts that bombard my mind in any given day – let alone a school day. I find it easy to get caught up on everything. As a result, some days my mind has a difficult time settling and concentrating. Thankfully, I’ve had this blog to focus in and reflect on certain aspects of my life. However, there are many things that I usually do not write about, either because they are menial, trivial or day to day to-do’s. I usually vent on a gchat with my mom instead about all the things that I feel I need to get done.
See, I’ve never kept a daily journal, but I do know how liberating it feels when I do put pen to paper in some troubling/confusing times that I’ve found myself in over the past few years. I have sometimes sat down in the past and wrote.
As I begin to contemplate starting a journal of my own, I am at a lost for where to start. For example, I used to keep a gratitude journal and a quotes journal. I foresee this journal as a transition journal – one in which I do not get caught up on those to-do’s, but also a place where I can compartmentalize those trivial tasks that seem to take on a life of their own in my mind.
So I seek your help.
Do you journal? What do you like to journal about? Do you follow a routine when you journal or do you just free-write?
In other news, I’ve felt under the weather so I took three days off from working out. I feared pushing it with my test ahead and my body is feeling tremendously better. Always listen to your body!
