Write Your Thoughts

Pretty Paper Journaling

If you are really serious about journaling, you can do it on cardboard. But it’s nice to do it on pretty paper. Beautiful paper, like a work of art, can appeal to our senses and emotions. Aesthetics is probably important in most of what we do and journaling is no different as we critically reflect on our thoughts and our words.

The beauty of the paper may be in the colour, the texture, an image/drawing or a combination of all these elements. What these different elements can do is help in creativity and assist in getting the thought processes flowing. Another thing that beautiful pages do is give us the sense that there is balance and harmony. This is especially true if the colours are blue and green.

Having your own work of art to write on makes your journal unique to you. You are writing about your thoughts, your experiences, your plans and your life so why not have something as unique as you are that reflects who you are?

Apart from the creativity and the sense of balance beautiful paper provides, it is simply pleasing to look at.

Remember there is nothing like words in black and white to help you see where you are and where you are going.
