Wreck This Journal


On Pinterest the other day, I discovered  "Wreck This Journal".
I had seen it referred to before but wasn't until the other day that I realized it was actually a thing.
I started to investigate and today I went and bought one. 
It wasn't expensive.  Less than $15.

I can tell you already ... it's going to be $14.95 well spent!

I have only had it for 8 hours and already I love it!


The whole premise of the book is this ... it's meant to be imperfect.  It is meant to be wrecked.  It's not a "write your feelings in it" journal.  It's not a "draw awesome things that you want to keep forever" journal.  It tells you what to do ... and challenges you to think outside the box, if you will.

Eight weeks ago I couldn't have even considered doing something like this.  In another eight weeks I might just tell you why I can now ...

Instructions #1 ... carry this with you everywhere you go.
Today, I did.
I had it in my purse when I went to the grocery store.
I had it in my pocket when I was doing the gardening.

Well, I had it in my pocket until I pulled it out to RUB DIRT on one of the pages!

I cannot even begin to explain to you how liberating that was! 
I felt so free.

And then I added a flower. 
A real, live, pretty smelling flower.
I decided I would try to press it and let it dry in my journal ...

But the flower didn't like that. 
Not one little bit. 
And so I have a little yellow reminder that on the opposite page but no pressed flower.

And I'm totally ok with it!

Since messy books was always the teacher's comment on my work I wonder what setting free efforts would help me! She seemed more worried than I was but I really disliked the mark downs! Perhaps I sould get over being rated!
Love the idea of your book.
