It is day one of my Wreck This Journal Experiment and I will never be the same again. For years I painstakingly wrote in journal after journal, only to stop 1/3 of the way through, never to be completed. Those journals have haunted me. But now, what is this? A journal that encourages creativity and imperfection? A journal with which a misspelled word or a flubbed letter is mere artwork? Tis the journal I have been searching for.
Admittedly, I thought I would hate Wreck This Journal. The idea of being told “what to do” concerned me. But instead, I am inspired. I love this journal. This can only further my creative juices.
And more importantly? I don’t feel obligated to be perfect. I’ve scribbled and scrawled my favorite song lyrics all over this thing. While some pages might not seem to serve a purpose (re: the page where you stick fruit stickers. Literally stickers from your actual bananas, oranges, etc), others are inspiring.
There are no limits if you don’t limit yourself.
