I was absolutely certain to have already written a note about this strange book by <strong>Keri Smith</strong> but it’s impossible to find it (I guess it’s something that might happen… I have so much blog at the same time !)
Jamie, for this new edition of <a href=”http://www.tnc-wreckthisjournal.blogspot.com/” target=”_blank”>The Next Chapter</a>, proposed us to go beyond our fear of mess and against our perfectionnism with the book <strong>Wreck This Journal</strong>.
But what is it ? It’s not really a book because there is no story AT ALL in it… but some funny and bizarre instructions to subjectively follow: mess is good, DESTRUCTION IS CREATION !
I’ve already started (and then forgot a little) to wreck this journal, so I really think it’s the good timing for me to do it now, to share with other people.
Here is what I’ve started for Week 1. I practiced a ritual I do several times a year, when something bothers me really really much, or make me angry, or sad or whatever negative feeling that can overwhelm me. I write down what make me in trouble and then I simply burn and destroy it. And then the feeling vanishes with the words I wrote. As simple as this. There, I burnt the paper with a stick of Patchouli incense (crazy, I know).
Et voilà !:
