Thank you to my 100 consistent subscribed readers for following along as I ranted on my daily musings, my receding hairline, traveling through europe, and transitioning back home this summer. You are all pretty wonderful.  

Ps. Did you know we hit the 100-mark?! I know that is nothing extraordinary in this massive blogosphere, but it’s pretty impressive in my book.

Pps. Did you know this month also marks the 1-year anniversary of this wittle blog? Read my first post here. It was when I turned 20. Soon, I’ll be 21.

Ppps. Did you know when I type in “jkfacee” on Google it asks me if what I meant to say was “jerkface?” Nope, that’s not what I meant. Do you see the needed name change here now… 

Just kidding. Okay, stop reading now. I’ll see you over at the new hot spot. There’ some free goodies waiting for you!

Cheers!

XO.

JOURNALING IN JULY.

Untitled-1

One of my favorite aspects about journaling is that afterwards, you are left with a collection of all your old thoughts, agendas, and insights. Our ability to retain information and memories is slimmer than we’d like to believe, and a record of old words serve as a time portal back into the yesterday’s. Past journals offer perspective: a better understanding of where you are going and an attitude of thankfulness for how you have gotten there.

I looked back at all my journal entires of July on the train one day, and I was shocked of how eventful the month was without even realizing it. As I knew it, another month had just came and went. Weekends seemed too quick and workdays were too long, but as I read through my prayers and recollections, I was reminded of both little and big things that had taken place. I was filled with thankfulness and inspiration. It was cool. (:

Here is a peek at some of my journal entries: (click to enlarge)

If you don’t journal already, I encourage you try it for the month of August! If you have ever asked yourself if God’s hand is  present in your life, this might help you. Journaling forces you to slow down, and in those moments of reflections is when God’s presence is evident.  You see the promises the Lord has declared over you, and how they are personally manifesting in your life! God is always, always working, slow down or you might miss it.

Journal about anything and everything. (: Talk about the highlights of your days and your weeks, and even vent about the worries that consume your heart. Share your blessings and express your wishes. God hears all of it. I believe that putting language to your emotions has the ability to pull them from the depths and hidden corners of your heart, onto the surface where it’s accessible to be touched, processed, and communicated. And when you are able to communicate it with yourself, you are more able to communicate them with God.

Good luck! (:
I’d love to hear your journaling adventures, please share below.
