2018 Journey…

I bought this journal today that’s meant to reflect my dreams, goals and day by day journey throughout 2018… perhaps it’s meant to reflect my life? I’m not sure, I’m still undecided what to write/draw in it. It’s been years since I’ve kept a journal, I’m a little afraid to what depths my expressions go these days, a lot has change between now and 10 years before which was when I wrote my final journal… it’s hard to decide just how honest you want to be with yourself.

  1. Oh I use to love writing in a journal I had so many through out t he years . Yes I always wonder the same thing how honest could I be what I write . I think it would consist of a lot of dislikes I have for many things these days hahaha ok to honest? 🙂

  2. It is so hard to be honest, even to your own self. Or, to say it better – in my poor opinion – it is so hard to be honest when you write and being honest with yourself is a must to make others believe you. I struggle with it every time. I realized though, that writing in english (not my native language) is much easier for me when I’m about to get serious lol (imagine what I’m constantly been through when writing in Greek 😀 )

    1. They say all writing to some degree is a reflection of the writer, but how much truth that holds really depends on how much you trust your readers skill to interpret it the way you want it… almost like a silent mutual agreement to keep a secret.
      I think the second you give yourself restrictions with writing, the second you question or doubt if you should include it, your writing loses credibility.

  3. By writing your thoughts or life is a risk. There is no way to predict people’s reactions. I try to tell the truth, my truth as I see and feel it. It might be different than the reality, but it doesn’t matter. It’s my life and I see it as I want. Nobody can touch that.

  4. I plan to still journal. Let me share this, as I was journaling I would go back every 7 days and read what I had been feeling and some of them were prayer requests but most of it was what I felt in my heart, good and bad. I encourage you to pour it out because if you don’t get it out you will not begin to see your dreams turn into reality. I wish you the best for 2018.

  5. Keeping a journal would be a great way to reflect on what you’ve written and therefore might provide you with insight about yourself. Seems obvious but if you really want to explore yourself more, it’s a good start. Thanks for visiting and liking Hmph Day.
