Intro to the Challenge + 5 Minutes Worth of Thoughts
I believe journaling is a beautiful and intimate way to connect with your thoughts, emotions about the past, present & future. Diary of a Mad Black Dad has been a journey that i have enjoyed for the past 3 years. I aspire to take my writing and this site to new heights. I wanted to start a 5 day journaling challenge to push myself to write more, show that men do journal, and always talk about being a dad and sharing this space with other parents.
The first day of my challenge was to write out my thoughts for 5 minutes. I closed my eyes and attempted to type out my thoughts. Here is what I came up with. The only edits I made were spelling errors since my eyes were closed and I was trying to get my thoughts out. Tell me what you think!
My dad called, definitely threw off my process
I love my wife
Is this a form of meditation?
I am excited about my future
This particular job hunt process has been interesting and it makes me feel valued more than I ever have (professionally)
Dom keeps calling me and asking about his binoculars, he wants me to find Elmo and Cookie Monster
Now he’s trying to take my hands off the keyboard
I really be wishing the best for my friends & family. I feel like I'm pretty supportive, I hope they feel it.
i working out in the morning really makes you feel better about your day
I tried to sit in silence but I'm sure Dom would have found me so I just played the new Snoh Album
I think I've talked about this before but sometimes I unconsciously hold my breath. Does anybody else do that?
