🎄💫☃️ Day 7 of The Finale: 20 Days of 2020 ☃️💫🎄

Your task for the day: Write a journal today ✍️

Writing journals helps you keep your thoughts organised. It also evokes mindfulness and helps writers remain present while keeping perspective.

Journaling presents an opportunity for emotional catharsis and helps the brain regulate emotions. It provides a greater sense of confidence and self-identity.

After completing this task, post a picture of your journal or share how you felt after doing it!

🌈 Pro Tip: Posting a picture/sharing your experience can lead to extra points. 📸 📝

It was great. Much needed! I usually write in my phone notes about what went good during my day and what can be worked on for the next day!
But it was after a long time, that I wrote on a paper and yes, the experience was mesmerizing!

Since I am a writer, literature student and an artist, I usually pen down my thoughts, my ideas and even my feelings in a journal. Today too it feels so good to do that out of routine. It’s the best thing one can do to pen down all that’s on the mind.

I used to have a personal diary in my school days that used to help me a lot when sad or angry due to some circumstances but then I was out of practicing maintaining a journal but now I have started again just like a new chapter of a story beginning …it was difficult at first to pen down what actually you are feeling but when you come in flow, all starts coming down on paper and you get rid off of the unwanted feelings which are now locked in a journal…so it was a really good experience for me …

Writing gives immense pleasure. I love writing, because keeping thoughts on paper is a way easier than conveying it to someone. I have a habit of writing to express all my feelings and I wrote something today . Pardon me as it is in hindi.

Tumhare khayalon mein dubna chahati hun
Tumhare yaadon mein kahin kho si jana chahati hun
Tumhare bahon mein ye zindagi bitanana chahati hun
Tumhare nazron mein bas, bs jana chahati hun
Tum hi wo kissa ho, jo har dam sunna chahati hun
Tum hi wo kahani ho, jo har dam likhna chahati hun
Tumhare sanson mein, mein samana chahati hun
Tumhare rooh mein, mein simatna chahati hun
Tum hi ho wo dua, jo roz rab se mangti hun
Tum hi wo khwab, jise mein roj dekhna chahati hun
Tumhe humesha apne kareeb pana chahati hun
Tumhe humesha nazron ke samne dekhna chahati hun
Tumhara saath zindagi bhar k liye chahati hun
Tumhe mein is zindagi se jyada chahati hun
Tumhi ho mera aasman, jisme mein pankh phailana chahati hun
Tum hi wo baarish ki pehli boond, jise mein mehsoos krna chahati hun
Tum hi wo tasweer, jo duniya ko dikhana chahati hun
Tum hi wo sardi ki dhup, jisse mein lipatna chahati hun
Tum hi ho wo hawa ka jhoka, jise mein har pal mehssos karti hun
Tum hi ho mere rab, jise mein khudse v jyada chahati hun

@mittal1111

So beautiful written

Kya baat kya baat…

Sirf ek baat kehni hai , Khud se zyada toh humein ek hi insaan ko chahna
chahiye… Aur woh insaan hai hum Khud…

Any way loved poetry…

@workinprogress

Actually I was overthinking…and sat down to write…so it was a bit hard actually and I don’t know…but sometimes journaling kind of even more gives rise to overthinking or thoughts going round and round…but I continued…my thoughts going round and round can be clearly seen in what I wrote…but yes…you know what…after all of it…finally I felt a sense of relief… 😌😊

Actually…can somebody please please…please…help me with overthinking also I kind of face this that talking about or seeing something I had written earlier kind of pulls me…and saying this makes it more…
I just try to tell myself and actually feel I should because that’s what it is that that time was like that you have outgrown those habits and that’s true there’s a reason I’m here…

But also today’s task help me get back to my journal after long and feel that relief that I feel after writing it all off… and then the meet up after it helped too…😌🧡

@workinprogress

It was damn relieving once I wrote it off…😌😌
Just the part where I can’t yet go back to some kind of hard things written off before and get into too much thinking over them if read them back doesn’t make me feel well…please help…

@mittal1111

Hi @workinprogress,

I am a bit unsure if I understood your question properly…
But from what I understand is that you are facing issues of over thinking when you read back what you written .

Firstly i suggest that when you write…just keep writing what every thingd comes to your mind in that topic. Be organic. Its not a book or something. Be very very honest with your writing… Secondly if you are writing something which is either your fears or bad memories or somebody who didn’t treated you good… Then after writing your heart out. Just burn that page. No need to read it . Just burn that page .You will feel really nice.

PS : If I didn’t understand your question properly. You may ask it again.

Cheers. 😀

@workinprogress

Hi @mittal1111 🧡
Thank you 😊…
You did understand my question and yes reading your idea itself makes me feel relieved but only thing is I don’t think I can do that or somewhere maybe I don’t want to do that because like sometimes we write to remember and sometimes may be we only write like I did to give it out…and sometimes along with that to just know how far we’ve come but burning it away does feel like a great relief like because it really might make me feel I’ve come over it…amd that I’ll never have the chance to see it again and no overthinking but the thought in me that maybe the previous writings( even if don’t really reason them back because of the reasons I mentioned I guess which might be said to be some kind of fear don’t know but she calling it that way troubles me even more like if it is a fear it means I got to face it…but just somewhere it I also feel if it doesn’t seem right to read it back I need not 🤷‍♀️) help me get that sense of how far I’ve come n what my journey has been…n all…so somewhere I can’t do that…
Like you can think that what I need is
Should I face my fears and read them back
Or is it fine I don’t…
And if to face that some kind of discomfort I feel to read them back and read them how should I deal with the overthinking and the fear of falling back…that come along what is that understanding that can help me read them back like a memory but not fall back not start overthinking on how to not fall back…n all…
Sorry for such a long msg 🙈🙈

@mittal1111

Dear @workinprogress

My limited knowledge about journaling is that it helps in healing . Now over thinking is a analysis which always leads to paralysis. The great part is that you know and are aware of what leads you to overthinking. Trust me Not many people have that awareness. Why would you do something which takes your peace.
Now you don’t essentially need to burn page of your journal. You can take any rough paper. Just write that part which brings you discomfort. Write any and everything that you feel at that moment or you remember. Write abt that bitter episode that leads you to overthinking. You can tell them whatever u feel by writing . Also write down that this is leading you to overthinking… At the end tell them I forgive you and I forgive myself. You can put the paper in bucket full of water instead of burning if you wish . Remember the activity doesn’t essentially erase your memory of the episode but makes you feel light and good at that moment . Its to bring peace to you. It helps you break the attachment with that episode. Its not an essentially one time activity.

Infact, i would suggest whatever thoughts you have during over thinking… You write and destroy those. The day you are detached , you will not feel discomfort… When you Revisit them … Till then when you read it again , the moment you revisit your memory and it brings discomfort to you then tell yourself STOP, stop reading and do a 2 min physical activity and start another activity

Or
as I said keep writing everything and keep burning or keep destroying by putting water… The day will come soon , it won’t matter to you and you will laugh evdn remembering those bitter memories…

Play around these…I am sure you will figure a way soon …
Peace
Cheers 😀

@mittal1111

Journaling is something i have taken up like 3months ago…
I am not consistent but i am learning and at least writing more than before.
I must say , writing about our feelings , our memories , our goals or anything about our day just makes you feel light. … I did journal today and I just feel content .

My examinations ended today, and I couldn’t initially understand how to bring out the loads of stuff buried in my mind. Thanks to this task, that I wrote a journal, followed by my occasional poetry. Glad I could do this after so long!!

I have been journaling since the starting days of my college time. It has really helped me a lot in regulating my emotions. Today, I did writing on MS-word and it helped in compartmentalising my thoughts i.e. how far I have come and what can be achieved in future. But the most important thing I discovered was how was I feeling today, the present. Thanks to this activity in helping me in regaining my lost strength and awakening my subconscious mind! :)
