“Journaling is like whispering to one’s self and listening at the same time.”
I started to journaling from a very young age, but I was not consistent until last year. I’m now maintaining a diary only to keep track of all the books I read, reviews, TBR and also about the series I watched. I tried maintaining a personal diary where I wanted to write about my thoughts and goals but somehow I couldn’t. So I decided to do art journal this year. In art journals you try to express what’s going on in your mind through images, colours, words etc.
One of the biggest advantage is no one other than me could understand the meaning of all the colours, images. Some art journals will have lots of picture representation while others will have a lots of writings. I prefer art journal with lots of images and less words. I would love to work on my thoughts, behavior and also learn more about me.
I was inspired to do this because of Daveen and she is a pro in art journaling. I’m also trying to combine art journaling with book journaling. It was so exciting and peaceful to work on my thoughts and use colours accordingly while at the same time keeping track of what I read.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I can be calm and thoughtful just because i was journaling but now i can really do assure you, this is so true. Do try journaling, let it be any type of journaling.
And let me know if you want me write about different types of journaling!!
