Today I bought myself a journal. I figured that with all my thoughts and worries it was about time I followed into Carrie Bradshaws footsteps, writing down everything I feel and think. I went to Staples with Kristina and found a pretty pink classic smooth-finish journal by Martha Stewart. On the first couple of pages in the journal there are some tips for beginners. It tells you different things you could write about, when to write, how the journal can help you and how to get started. It was hard to decide whether I should choose the pink, turquoise or classic black journal, but I figured since it’s my personal journal it had to be pink. I see my journal as a gateway into my head so I think it can be quite scary to put all my thoughts into words that can be read out loud. On the other hand I think it will be a positive experience to get it all out and hopefully get some closure. I’ll be my journal’s best friend and worst enemy, writing down both negative thoughts and experiences, and positive ones. Sharing my deepest fears with my journal will absolutely be the scariest part, but the journal can’t judge me or tell me what’s wrong or right. They say you should face your fears, and right now I’m facing mine by being honest about everything that’s in my head, all my insecurities, not leaving anything out, and putting it all down in words. “Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” ― C. JoyBell C.
