So you’ve decided it’s time to get serious about journaling? Congratulations! I know it can feel like a ginormous, overwhelming ball of stress buckets at the moment – and that’s normal. Staring at a blank page in your journal (you have your journal, right?) is like waiting for that cute guy you gave your number too… well, nevermind – just remember, we’ve all been there.
We all have big dreams – things we want to accomplish, stuff we need to do, burning desires to make a difference in the world. To accomplish these dreams, you need to have your goals in order – you have that, right? You need to have that roadmap in place to keep you focused on those goals without getting lost.
Just like dating that new beau, starting a journal is easy – it’s exciting, mysterious, invigorating… you’re ready to spend every moment with your new love (sounds familiar doesn’t it?). But we all know what’s coming – that honeymoon period is over and now your journal feels like a chore. Yep, your motivation has tanked – so now what?
