Why do I keep a Journal?

If you have stumbled on this post, you might be considering starting a journal. Or you have may have already started your journal and you wanted some insight into what other people’s reasons are for starting their journals. Whatever your reason is, welcome to my blog, I hope you have fun here.

Most people who know me will be aware that I keep many journals. I like to write, I like to create pretty things, and I like to seem a lot more organised than I actually am!

It may seem excessive, but I have a process so hear me out, I have three journals. Each one is for something different. I have a bullet journal, a writing journal and an art journal.

I have been keeping an art journal for many years now, I find so therapeutic to create pages and different layouts. In this journal, no two pages will look the same and that’s what I love about it. I could show this journal to someone and tell them a story about each individual page.

My art journal helps me keep my memories alive. I struggle a lot with forgetting big events that have happened in my life and now I don’t really worry about that anymore. Another thing it’s helped me with is finding my creative side even when I’m not working. Currently, most of my days are spent creating new websites for people, which takes a lot of energy, so staying creative outside of that was a struggle. It’s helped me a lot with disconnecting from work, because even though I love it, I don’t need to be thinking about it 24/7.

I hope to talk more in the future about my journal. It’s one of my prized possessions and sharing it with other people who also journal is quite refreshing.

Thanks all for reading, I’ll hopefully be back soon talking about what I’m taking to Nashville.
