I've decided to journal again this year except try to keep it out daily... I was better at keeping a *things to be thankful for* type journal last year as covid had really got me down at the first part of 2020 and needed to focus on the good bits, also I lost track of the months last year and didn't really keep to it...I think after watching some really inspiring journals and junk journals on YouTube and on social media its given me a new drive to do it and stick with it. I find journaling a good mental health healer... It helps me chanel anxiety, fears, worries onto paper, figuring out as I draw, write, paint how to deal with things on my mind at the time... Also its a mix of things my new journal... Inspiring images from magazines, old books and gathered papers, inspiration I've had a while. So more like a scrap book with daily snippets of thoughts & feelings, things I been up to, walks, art... Ect.
Also as we're in another lock down it gives me something to focus on daily other than chores around the house and home schooling. Stevie still at work full time & classed as key worker status as before so our life hasn't altered very much on that score. But *life* day to day still feels strange to me... Waiting I guess for how this new vaccination will pan out and how will life be after that. Its living in the unknown and I have to not over think that too much otherwise it weighs heavily on my mind.
So, the new year so far, these past weeks has been rather challenging at times with home schooling and lock down. But as always I'm looking for the bright and cheery...
