Farewell old friend.. This morning I filled the last page of yet another journal. This one holds a special place in my heart. In its pages are some of the rawest words about motherhood, anxiety, depression, marriage, friendships... all the highs and lows of the last 9 months of my life. So here I say goodbye, thank you for listening, for being my release when I couldn't talk to anyone, thank you for keeping my secrets, dreams and goals.
This is an exciting time though, now is the time to start a new journal. I have a beautiful Parisian one awaiting me to open its pages and fill it with words about life.
Journals! You guys. If you struggle with anxiety or depression or just sometimes feel like you have no one to talk to or I mean if you're just a human then get a journal! Pour your heart out! Write down the good and amazing things to look back on and relive those moments over and over. And then unleash all the negative shit attacking your mind and heart. I view it as a release. Leaving me through my mind, down to my heart, through my arms and hand and eventually through the pen and trapped forever onto a page. And just like that, the bad is gone. Imprisoned if you will.
I once gifted someone a journal. It felt good. It felt like giving someone a friend in themselves. A chance to learn about who they are. A chance to rid themselves of their deepest worries. A chance to celebrate their happiest moments. Yes.
Soooo go get yourself a journal if you don't already have one, and if you do then this is a sign to go write in it. You're welcome. And happy hump day 🐪 #journals#writeitout#writeitdown#writeyourheartout#anxiety#depression#itsthelittlethings#pages#blankpages#releasethenegative#celebratethepositive
