Here’s What January 2017 Looked Like For Me

Written Words: Here's What January 2017 Looked Like For Me

I have, to be honest with you. Blogging is HARD WORK! I am a lover of written words. Poetry is my go-to style of writing. Letters would be my second choice. Coming in third would be long-form blog posts and magazine articles.

English was not my favourite subject in school. It was actually Math because I KILLED IT! I did well in English. That is because I have a natural talent for written words.

In 2016, I was browsing Twitter, as I do from time to time when I have free time at work. I came across this tweet:

At the time, I was still on the clock. So I liked the tweet and went back to work. During my lunch break, I read through the blog post and said, “YES, this is what I need to do on my blog”.

There are so many reasons why I wanted to do this type of blog post. The main one is the mental health benefits of self-reflection and self-study. Circa 2015, I was averse to looking within to find the answers I seek. But present day 2017. I am all for meditations, quiet times, journaling and anything else that helps me get to know me!

Without further ado, I am going to take stock of January 2017. Sharing my highs and my lows with you. If you would like to something similar for yourself click here to download a free printable!

Like most people. I am trying to get closer to the life I want to live. There is a life I value more than the one I currently have. Not that my current life is bad. But, I know the best is yet to come.

While most like to think that if you believe hard enough with no action. You will get everything that you want. Belief is important. It’s where we start! But, without action. Our beliefs are dreams that will never come true the way we want them to.

So, let’s get into journal entry 007. Click the Continue Reading button below!
