5th Year Blog Anniversary

Whoa! This deserves celebration. With this reason, I reward myself of watching One Piece series though I’m still on the 130th episode. So far, I’m liking it. I’m not that much blogging but at least posting one entry wouldn’t hurt me. I have a journal to write on so that really bother me. The Holy Spirit had been very much inspiring me though my writings aren’t that inspiring. Geez. All right, this is enough. May the Lord bless us always. Amen.

A lesson from a security guard on journal writing

When I saw a security guard holding a logbook, I remember the conversation I had with a school guard when I was still a high school student.

What are you doing?“, I asked.

Writing a journal log,” he replied.

He then explained that the entries will help them in the future if an incident happen. The log will serve as an evidence when they need it during an investigation.

Though I am not a security guard, I think what he shared to me is very insightful. Writing my journal everyday will benefit me since I might need it one day when I find myself in times of distress. It could be my source of inspiration when rainy days come.

How about you, do you hear good advice from people whom you don’t expect to give advice? 

Thoughts on keeping a Journal

Hello everyone, this is Allen and I’m back with my second post of the year. Wow! I don’t know why but I cannot use WordPress properly here in our desktop computer. Anyway, that doesn’t stop me from blogging. There’s a Post-By-Email! Though I’m offline for more than a year now, I’m still struggling to continue my writing by means of journal writing. Actually, we are encouraged in the novitiate to write a lot that we even have some seminars about Creative Journal Keeping and Intensive Journal Writing.

I remembered one time that I asked the nun facilitating the seminar on journal writing. I asked her how would I keep on writing constantly. She told me that she can only give tips and tricks but it’s me whose able to keep on writing on my journal. So it means keeping a journal depends on myself whether I’ll keep on writing constantly or not.

I won’t stay longer here now since it’s 12:05 in the morning, it’s a Sunday and I need to attend the morning mass later. See you later and please hit the comments if you feel like sharing how your journal keeping experience too.

Question: How are you able to keep on writing in your journal?
