I am obsessed with bullet journaling. I started it at the beginning of the year and Iridescence and I thought we would share some tips on how you can start too with you.

Applause

Here is something I don’t really understand. Why do we applaud after a show or a presentation?

If you ask google it tells you that applause is the approval or praise expressed by clapping but I think it has lost it’s meaning over time because even if we did not like what we just saw we will still applaud. It became a weird social ritual without any meaning. Also, no one ever knows when to stop and it always ends up being weird because you either stop way too early or too late.

Maybe I am wrong about this what do you think?

Darkness

There is always some light hidden in the back of all the darkness.

Dear you,

why do you look so sad? What happened?

I know life can be hard sometimes. I know that sometimes it feels like you are caught in a neverending darkness. Sometimes it feels like the voices and the pain are never going to stop and you do not think you can take it any longer. We all feel like that from time to time and that is okay. It is what makes us human.

There will always be ups and downs in life and you may ask now if the ups are worth all the pain you are feeling now? I can tell you from my own experience that it is.

Do not beat yourself up for what happened whether it was your or someone else’s fault. Look ahead. There is always some light hidden in the back of all the darkness. I promise.

Look at yourself. You are strong. You are beautiful. You are worth as much as everyone else. You may not be perfect but no one is. I am not perfect and no one you see on the screens all over this world is.

Do not give up. Keep searching for the light and I promise it will get better.

Imperfection

You, nobody else and nothing you do needs to be perfect because as Anne Lamott says it is uninteresting and unreal.

I am not perfect and I never will be perfect either.

My “art” is not perfect and it will never be perfect.

I am sorry to tell you this, but you are not perfect and you will never be perfect too.

Nobody and nothing is and ever will be perfect.

But how does something perfect look like?  What is perfection?

Perfection is shallow, unreal and fatally uninteresting.

-Anne Lamott

You, nobody else and nothing you do needs to be perfect because as Anne Lamott says it is uninteresting and unreal.

There is joy in every little imperfection. Don’t beat yourself up for it. Take a closer look instead and find the joy.  All those little imperfections are what makes you yourself and what makes the things you create yours.

Pressure

Things have to change and I am willing to work for them to do so.
A recent page in my journal

I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself lately and all the weight is slowly crushing me. I worry about things I don’t have to worry about, I make other people’s problems my own, I blame myself for things that are not my fault, and all of this is holding me back.

Today I finally talked about it. I originally wanted to talk about my exam nerves but the person I talked to and I ended up talking about a lot more. I talked about all the things on my mind I have been hiding in the back because saying them out loud and even writing them down seemed wrong. It was hard and yes, I did cry but in the end, I learned a lot about myself.

Talking it out loud was the right thing to do. I always felt like I had no one to tell all of it to but now that I do I feel like the weight on my shoulders has gotten smaller.

Things have to change and I am willing to work for them to do so.

Dedication

Dedication: The quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose.

Today is the day I am turning a year old. 365 days ago I spontaneously typed in Just A Blank Space, where you are supposed to put your name, and created A Blog Filled With Thoughts (You can find my first blog post here).

I have been posting on this blog, I created out of a mood, for a year. Now that is what I call dedication. Doesn’t the world itself sound like something awesome. Dedication. This definitely goes on my list with my favourite words (major journaling idea here).

Dedication:  The quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose.

Synonyms: commitment, wholeheartedness, enthusiasm.

Wholeheartedness is another word that needs to go on my list of pretty words. But back to Dedication. I am proud of dedicating to posting for a year and it doesn’t look like you will be able to get rid of me for a little longer.

Lots of Love
