The Gift of Journaling

A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Retro Lifestyle Blog

We all have times when we feel really overwhelmed like we may lose our minds or really down as if nothing will get better. This is all normal and although people don't normally speak about it, it happens to the best of us.

One of blogs that I always enjoying reading is called Gala Darling. I decided to take a online course called Gala's Radical Self Love Bible class was right up my alley. It's basically an art journaling course and it has been so fun to work on everyday. I am in week three into my three month course and I have already learned so much. Best part is that in a way it feels like homework so I tell the children that mama has homework to do and they sit quietly and watch me craft and journal. 

I love what I am doing and I love that at the end of the three month course I will have something that is solely about me and for me. A gift of journaling.

Have you ever journaled before? Do you find that sometimes you forget yourself in the midst of other things?

  1. I have journaled since I was in third grade, and I LOVE it. It does really help me to sort out my thoughts, especially in highly emotional or distressful times. It helps me figure out what I actually think about things, which, to me, gives me clearer perspective on not only situations in my life, but also myself.

  2. That's awesome, dear Daffny. So often we - and I'd argue, especially us ladies - forget to stop and must the focus on celebrating ourselves and our lives, let alone in such a creative manner. It's fantastic that you're doing so and that your family is (as they should be!) behind it. Thank you for sharing a glimpse of your lovely handmade journaling pages with us.

    Extra love to add to that which you have for yourself!
