The Mindfulness Project Month 1: Journaling

I am so behind.  In my blogging.  In my life.  Everything.

However, today is August 1, and I am starting my first month of The Mindfulness Project.  This month's task is to journal every day.  I have become much  more consistent at journaling lately, but I would like to really make it a habit.  I am very much looking forward to allowing my journaling to become a priority and not letting it get stuck at the bottom of my to-do list.

I am supplementing my jouraling by reading The Artist's Way.  That is a book that is going to take me much longer than a month to complete, but I am also very excited to go through this book.  I tried going through the process of the book once before, but I couldn't do it perfectly, so I quit.  A couple of weeks ago, someone suggested to me that I go through The Artist's Way, but that I not do it perfectly.  What a novel idea!  I think I might be able to do that!

I would write more, but I have not yet journaled today, so Matt and I are going to sit on the porch with a beverage and our journals.  Sounds lovely, no?


  1. I wish you all the best with that. I've tried to read the book twice, but never got very far. I've also discovered that I simply cannot write three pages every morning! I do enjoy journaling, but not the way she does it. Which is fine. I actually haven't journaled in awhile and I miss it. It's time to pull it back out again. Thanks for the little reminder. :D

  2. I've never been very consistent with journaling either! It's so hard for me to take the time every day. Typing is so much faster! (I know--shame on me.) I did keep a journal years ago when I was pregnant with each of my 3 children, though. I recorded information from each pregnancy and information like milestones, cute things they said and did, etc., in each child's journal for about 2 years or so for each child.
