After my July Journaling Challenge turned out to be a success, I’ve decided to keep going monthly with them. Sometimes, we will have a themed month, like October is all ‘Stranger Things’ prompts, most months it will just be like July. For where it says to bullet point your entire day, I think it takes up too much space, so in the future I think that I’m just going to do the morning or something like that. Here is the August printable:
Thanks for reading my blog. The usual charade would be here. The follow and like because it supports my blog. It really does, but I’d probably keep going no matter what. So just keep reading my blog and I really do hope that you enjoy it.
As Ben Kowalewicz (The Billy Talent vocalist) once said, ‘So many people will try to stop you, but you can’t let them. Live life to the fullest, and have however much fun that you want.’ I personally think that this is great advice to live by, but does it apply to every situation? Does it apply to my situations and experiences? Call me crazy, but I look up to Ben and the guys in Billy Talent because, well look at them! They were like me, the dorks, the misfits and the outsiders in highschool who all had one common interest: rock music. they formed a group called Pezz and recorded tier first album in guitarist Ian D’Sa’s basement. This was almost 25 years ago. Pezz is still going strong, just under a different name. Now called Billy Talent, they can knock down any obstacle that stands in their way. Heck, they were willing to put the entire production of Afraid Of Heights on hold because of drummer Aaron Solowonuick’s MS relapse, but Aaron insisted that they soldier on without him. The bond that they have is crazy. They were once like me. So was JK Rowling, and they all went on to do something great. None of them ever fit in. They all had humble beginnings. They weren’t popular or well-liked. JK Rowling ended up on welfare, but still made Harry Potter happen. I am destined for greatness, or so I’ve been told. Or maybe I’m destined to be the villain in my own story.
All of us have the potential for great things. It’s just a matter of -ugh- effort and how we use that potential. If we put our minds to it, we can achieve greatness. I hope. I wan tto be the next JK Rowling, SE Hinton or Mary Higgins Clark. You look at some of these people an think they have it made, but you need to look at where they came from. Most of them built up their empire and wealth from absolutely nothing. Nobody great ever got there without actual effort. Nothing in life is free. Weather the price is money, or effort, you’re always paying somehow, and it always pays off. So go cahse your dreams, they aren’t out of reach.
Journaling. Journaling is something way different from writing in a dairy. Journaling is great for people like me who suffer from anxiety, or people who don’t have anybody to talk to. Journaling can (apparently) help heal the mind and can be therapeutic. So on a whim, I decided to attempt journaling. I (obviously) DIYed a journal and Iwill share that with you later, and started writing. At the end of each entry, I put song lyrics and stickers, but you can do whatever makes you happy because it’s your journal. If it helps, you can adress each journal entry to somebody who you would like to talk to, or you feel would listen, so my entries are to Jonathan Byers from Stranger Things. I don;t kno why this helps, but it does. I also discovered 30-day challenges that give prompts for what you are writing. I typed up the prompts i’m using this month and made a printable below for you guys!
To print the prompts, right click on the image and press ‘view image’. It will open in a new tab and you can print it from there.
Thanks so much you guys for reading my blog, we are almost at 30 followers! It doesn’t sound like much, but for an almost 13 year old, it’s crazy, so thanks so much! Remember to follow my blog and i will see you soon!
