Do you Diary?
In all of my life I have never felt compelled to write about my day. Which is odd to me. After all of this time I wonder why that is. I mean I can wax poetic about storms, or even about great books that I've read. Yet, in all that time I've never felt the need to turn my musings inward and examine myself that way. All that changed in the beginning of September when I decided that for a year I'm going to journal. So far, so good. Yeah, I know it's only been a month but it's not as hard to keep up as I had originally thought.
Something to be happy about.
It's definitely not as hard as blogging everyday because I don't have to be politically correct when I look inward. If the Captain's been a little less than his stellar self, I can be honest there. After all it's for no one's eyes but my own.
The biggest thing that I realized is that journaling is very cathartic. And it has really helped me work through some trying times. As I said before, September has been a sad month for us here. But, last night the Captain pointed out that even though its been hard, my rallying skills are getting better. I can only contribute that to being able to let it all out between the pages.
Each evening I take twenty minutes to clear my thoughts before I put pen to paper or in this case fingers to keyboard. Plus, I've given myself permission to write whatever I want while including pictures, stickers and other fun things that gives it a decided kellified look.
So what's next you ask? I think I need a theme song.
