How to keep a journal when you're at a loss for words.

There’s sometimes so much to say, but you just can't find the words, not to mention that some of our feelings don’t have words to describe them...

"I've always loved the idea of journaling and used to flick through the different books, trying to decide which one would work best for me.

From an early age I've found great  enjoyment in drawing and doodling, but never in writing, especially when it came to describing emotions...

So, when Pinterest started adding creative journaling content into my feed, I was excited at the idea of expressing myself with pictures, drawings and scribbles. No words (unless they come to me) and no rules! 

I've also now found the perfect book - The Positive Dotted Journal (above). It features blank pages and thicker paper, perfect for paint and collage!

    You don't have to be artistic to communicate in ways other than words. You don't have to create masterpieces either - enjoy experimenting with all types of media and you'll soon find your voice.

    Cut up magazines, scribble with pencils and pens, flick ink, dribble paint, even stick in some post-it notes. Anything goes!

    Hopefully we've inspired you to get started. There really are no rules, as long as you’re jotting down your thoughts or feelings in some way or another, you’re journaling!
