I Start Journaling

July 13, 2019

I've been curious these past couple of months about journaling. Many people so pro about journaling even recommend their audience to do so because it makes them feel so productive to run the day, feel more focus, and content. So I decided, why don't I try? 

But..I just want to find a perfect notebook for doing this, a thick & simple one (lol, sorry, I'm picky). Then one fine day, when I have this kind of dinner date appointment with my girlfriends, I visited Gramedia first to look whether the notebook I want is in there. Then, there it was...I found it! This notebook, the same brand and look, that I've been using since 3 years ago is finally restock in Gramedia. I've been looking for this kind of notebook but the last time I went there, nothing. You can buy this notebook via online here.

Then I start journaling. It's been a week now. Everyday, 6.30 in the AM, I write 2 pages for whatever I feel and thinking on that moment. And seriously, everytime I write, there's always something new came up inside my mind.

"Whether you're keeping a journal or writing as a meditation, it's the same thing. What's important is you're having a relationship with your mind." 
- Natalie Goldberg

There's actually a lot of things I'd like to do and I've been abandoned it for my whole life. I even made a spreadsheet on how to execute it, but I do nothing. I even don't know where to begin. I was using Google Calendar to make the agenda but again, I just ignore it & do nothing. Then after doing journaling for a week, I just realised that my mind is a mess. I couldn't focus on one thing. Journaling helps me so far to be more focus. It's like a meditation through writing and I really need this kind of meditation.

Okay, I know it's just a week. So I challenge myself to continue do this consistency. I will let you guys know the result in the next 30 days. Stay tuned!
