My Thoughts Are Like Water

My thoughts are like water

My thoughts are like water

wild

deep like the ocean

powerful like waves

sometimes they flow like a calm river

sometimes they tickle like raindrops on my skin

but sometimes they crash down on me like waterfalls

some days they make me feel free like clouds

and sometimes they choke me like I am drowning

they have the power to destroy everything I have built

and yet I need them to survive

 


Today I want to share this poem I wrote for Inktober with you guys. It is always hard to share my own poems. Most of my poems are about my feelings, things I think about, fears, struggles, but mostly they mean a lot to me. I feel very vulnerable when I share a poem and there is always this feeling that my poem is not good enough. Well, today I am trying to put all of this aside and share one of my favorite poems because overall I am very proud of this one. I hope you like it too.

Penpal Journal Flip Through

Thank you very much for watching this video of my penpal journal. I originally got the idea from snazzyavery, so if you are interested make sure you check her out as well.

Another Account I mentioned in this video is my penpal Laia. She has an amazing art journal account on Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed this video. As always feel free to ask me any open questions in the comments. I’ll try my best to answer them.

Journal Q&A

 

Journal Q&AQ&As have become an all-time classic. Whether on YouTube, Instagram or on many other platforms around the Internet, people seem to enjoy them.  But in my soon to be three years writing this blog I have never done it myself. I asked you guys to send me your questions earlier today which I want to answer along with some frequently asked questions. If I leave anything unanswered, feel free to ask me in the comments.

How many journals do you have?

At the moment I am working on four journals at the same time. My traveler’s notebook with my morning pages and my “normal” writing pages, my bullet journal, my art journal and my junk journal. I don’t work in each journal every week but I love each and every one of my journals.

 

What’s your favorite journaling supply?

My favorite journal supply used to be Washi Tape. I have over a 100 rolls of Washi Tape but at the moment what I use most are cutouts from magazines and all kinds of pictures I find. I love it when my penpals send me some as well. I just recently bought some indigo liquid watercolor from Ecoline and I am obsessed with it as well. It’s just so hard to decide.

 

How do you keep up with your journaling habit?

Keeping up with your journaling habit can be hard. I get this question a lot and I always say the key to it is to set aside time for yourself to journal. If it helps you can also write it down in your calendar, planner, bujo… as an appointment. Just remember, you can’t be creative all the time. Over the last two weeks, I haven’t been journaling at all because I just couldn’t get myself to do it and that is fine with me. Stressing yourself about keeping a habit just makes it harder to actually keep up with it.

 

What is your all-time favorite page?

This is an amazing question but it is so hard to answer. I don’t think I have one favorite page. There are so many pages I am proud of but here are some I narrowed it down to four pages I really like:

 

How do you make your journal pages?

I don’t think I can give a good answer to this question. Each and every page is different but I guess for each page I try to get the pictures and ideas in my head on the paper.

 

Are you accepting new penpals?

Sadly I am not accepting new penpals right now. I recently started writing to two new penpals and it turned out to be harder to keep up with 5 penpals than I thought it would. It always takes me ages to reply and I am always catching up on my letters

 

These are all the questions I got for today. Thank you so much for reading. If there is anything you would like to know please ask me in the comments. I always enjoy chatting with you guys.

How To Write The First Letter To A New Penpal

Thank you very much for watching my new happy mail video. I have been writing a lot of letters recently and also accepted three new penpals. A lot of people struggle with writing the first letter to a new penpal, I included, as you don’t know anything about them yet. I hope this video may help you a little bit and give you some ideas on what to put in the first letter.

My Journaling Playlist

My Journaling Playlist

Last month I totally got into creating my own playlists. I’ve never really made my own ones before because I was too lazy and there are so many playlists you can listen to on Spotify. But last month I finally sat down and created my own playlist and it was so much fun. Of course, I just had to create my own journaling playlist. When it comes to journaling I love to get this feeling of letting go. When the world around me stops existing and it is just me and my journal. All these songs put me into that zone and of course, I needed to share that with you guys.

I am curious. What are your favorite songs to listen to while journaling?
