How Journaling helps me as a Blogger

My eyes are closed. I feel the fresh air of night and I listen to the soothing sounds of wind chimes, the crickets singing, I can hear some dogs barking. It feels great to be here and to have such peaceful moments in my life. I loved staying outside and admiring the night’s beauty since I was a kid. You see… I feel especially inspired to write during nighttime. I don’t know why, but this is the moment I feel the most creative. Should I tell you about the cheesy poetry I used to write as a teenager? Hmm, maybe not :))

I loved writing since I was very young. I tried writing fiction for the first time when I was 11. The problem was that I was always chaotic. I never had the patience to start with the beginning. I never had the patience to finish my ideas. I see myself as a creative person. I felt creative whenever I wrote or sang. It’s in me. The problem is my lack of patience and consistency.

I dreamt of creating my own blog for a long time now. It seamed to be the perfect place for me to start writing more seriously. But I was afraid. Afraid of being judged, afraid that people won’t read or like my writing. However, I wanted to do it at least once in my life, to become courageous and just write the way I feel. I doubled the challenge when I decided to write in English which is not my mother tongue. Writing still feels like a passion. It will probably stay like this forever. And I hope it will.

My blogging journey started in September last year. I wanted to change the way I lived, to take it easier and to live better. It’s work in progress, I didn’t discover America and I am still far from being close to my objective. However, I get closer with every responsible decision I make and I love the journey more than the destination. When I started blogging, I already had a journaling routine and I was starting to discover myself more and more. I was trying to discover what I really like and what makes me happy. Putting my thoughts on paper started to feel easier and easier. And I was doing it out of pleasure. It was fun and healing at the same time.

In time, I realized that journaling could be one of my super powers. It wasn’t because I was good at it, but because I felt so liberated, organized and relaxed. Yes, journaling helps me clear my mind. It is also a moment to become creative. Many of the ideas for my blog posts were inspired by my journaling activity. When I felt I had nothing to say I either took a break or I wrote in my journal. Then I would feel like having stories to tell again. Like now. Today’s article is inspired by my latest diary update and it is also fueled by this magical and peaceful night. What a better way to end my day than living in the now and writing about it?

This is it for today, dear readers.

Thank you for reading and have a peaceful night as well.
