Because I mentioned my journals(and because it probably won’t be the last time!), I thought I’d show you my little collection…
I always select blank pages, because I love the freedom of scrawling my thoughts without lines to guide them, and each new journal suits my mood at the time I choose it. One of the blue ones shows drop of water creating ripples; another is covered in clouds. The pink flowery one is from the year I met and fell in love with my husband. You better believe that is my favorite journal of all time. Pages in other journals tell about the pre-baby blues I experienced during each pregnancy or how hard I’ve worked at marriage. I write more about what I feel than what I experience; it’s how I process my world.
Are you a journaler? If not, how do you process your world?
Everyone tells you all the time how you SHOULD journal. I don't "journal" but I blog for our family journal and am very proud of myself for doing so. But I never want to write angry things or sad things–I have a private blog for that which I rarely write on). I'd rather forget!
Definitely a journal, which I sometimes guiltily feel like I should call a diary, because I too write my feelings, my perspective, and very little about details or history. But it's my own personal therapy and how I keep sane, processing through things that trouble me, or things that elate me that I really want to remember. I suppose anyone who may read my writings someday will think me very bipolar. Oh well, it works for me.
