Recording the journey...

I learned how to journal as a child.  I grew up in a church that taught us to chronicle our lives by writing our story down.  I got away from it after I found out my parents were reading it.  I got back into it in my 20's but they contained a lot of negativity, so I stopped again.  I've been journaling again in the last couple of years.  I feel like writing helps me work out my bullshit in my head before I spew it out for the world to hear (you're like, wait this is you holding back?!  I know, right?). 

My latest journal is pretty awesome so I wanted to share it.  It is leather bound with a thick cotton paper.  (I actually have two journals right now as I am still in the middle of the Rituals for Transformation, which is 108 days long).  I really do feel like writing helps on my journey towards enlightenment.  

Anyway, I hope you enjoy -- it makes a great gift too!

  1. hmm, the church I was raised in also heavily focused on journaling. I wonder if it's the same...

    I have a private blog. I spew all sorts of negative nonsense at it. It helps clear my head. I've been doing it for a few years now and only wish I'd started sooner. I hate actual handwriting...so I could never regularly devote time to a proper journal. But I can type like eleventy million words a minute, so a private blog is my jam. Then my public blog, where I sometimes write negative (I say honest, not negative) things.

    1. Yes, my frustration with journaling is how much longer it takes to write. I can type so much faster. So when I am super upset about something, I will often email it to myself then print it to add to my journal. lol
