30 Days Of Journaling

I have kept journals consistently since I was 13, and it has added more value to my life than my years. Besides how much I enjoy reading my entries in retrospect, it is a practice that has helped me remain introspective, accountable, inspired and has encouraged me to uncover life’s hidden gems (that would otherwise pass me by). It’s helped me, among other practices, to stay grounded in and connected to, my values. The effect of which builds my independence and confidence, because I become increasingly sure of myself. It helps me de-clutter and live lighter. And because I am generally a sentimental person, having a personal collection of my deepest thoughts as well as a record of my experiences is absolutely up my alley.

My journals are the perfect listeners, safe places for my innermost desires, dream catchers, birthplaces of clarity, confidence builders, conversations with God.

I recently shared my journal collection, and received a couple of questions about journaling. My answer remains this: There are no rules. Do your thing, and let.it.flow. Be as honest with yourself as possible. Cast your net as wide as you would like.

I since created this 30 day journaling exercise to help get both you and I on track with daily journaling. They say it takes about 21 days to build a habit? By day 30, we will be pro’s hey.

I begin mine on the 20th August 2017. Join me? Feel free to loop me in along the journey as well!

Lastly, the first prompt is on gratitude. I am currently on such a beautiful gratitude journey, and as I have learnt, it has to be a daily process for it to be a transformative process. Write down what you are grateful for not just on day one, but everyday thereafter (in the morning or evening). “When you’re grateful for the things you have, no matter how small they may be, you will see those things instantly increase.”

Love and Love,

Nyambura.

    Journalling is a form of selfcare for me!! It helped me when i was struggling with postpartum depression, and i certainly advocate for it. Love the 30 day challenge too! Keep writing Nyambura. PS: Where do you get the journals on your IG post? they look amazing!
