It’s been 16 days since I decided to write in a journal every single day. Well, I’m personally not a “new player” in the journaling world, I’ve been writing diaries since elementary school. But most of the time, I didn’t do it daily.
16 days ago, I decided to write everyday with as simple form as possible. I also try to do it because I need it, not because I have to do it. Therefore it doesn’t feel like a burden nor an obligation, I do it because I love doing it.
During the past 16 days, this is what daily journaling taught me:
Journaling helps me to make the most of every moment.
Ever since I wrote in my journal, I started to experience everything more fully. By writing, I learned to appreciate every little thing.
I believe there’s no promised tomorrow, therefore I want to cherish my life while it lasts.
I love seeing how much I’ve grown every day.
Journaling makes me realize that A LOT of things can happen within a month, a week, or even a few days. I wrote about my worries, my anxieties, my emotions, and now I am proud of myself for accomplishing what I thought was impossible, or even as simple as facing my fear.
I love the fact that I can document my development, now I have proofs that I’m not stuck in life.
Even when it’s semester break, there’s nothing identical on every single day.
I thought that my day was quite boring, I do a lot of things by routine. Well, ever since I wrote in my journal, I realized that there must be something different. Be it what happened, how I felt, what I thought, every day felt different since I decided to write.
Summing up, daily journaling taught me to be mindful and grateful for everything.
By writing on my journal, I learned to embrace every moment to the fullest,
By writing on my journal,
I learned on how to live and not just exist.
