Writing down my thoughts is one way for me to debrief from life’s drama and to record mementos for future reference. Aside from chronicling my thoughts in this blog, I also happen to have a mobile application to write down more personal experiences and lately I’ve been going back to my old habit of writing down my ideas and day-to-day life experience with the aid of a pen and paper.
I know that journals in time will accumulate space and it is tad contradictory to the minimalist lifestyle that I try to embody. However, on really stressful moments, there is something relaxing and liberating in writing down your emotions in ink.
I purchased an inexpensive journal from our local bookstore. It isn’t too plain like the notebook that students use for school nor is it too fancy that will drain a hole in my pocket. Back in the days, I use to own Starbucks journal which can be obtained through accumulated purchases of different Starbucks drinks.
