January 3, 2017
I started journaling when I was a child.
My first diary had a little gold lock on it
and it felt so very grown up to be able to
write my thoughts and then lock them up.
Since then, I've used lined journals, blank
journals, online journals and hemp journals.
All gave and continue to give me a sacred
place to record my life, my ideas, my dreams.
My 2 new journals for 2017 include the smaller version
in the upper photo and the black floral version below.
The white journal is my Art Journal ~ a place to flesh
out my art projects and to do some mixed media in
the journal itself. The second journal is for my daily
ideas, notes and lists to keep me on track. I'll also use
this blog as another option for recording and reflecting
on life. I have no plans for the journals once they fill
up, other than I tuck them away for safe keeping. I
have gone back to re~read my words and am always
encouraged by the growth and raw energy of my life.
Inspiring on days when life proves to be extra hard.
Do you journal or keep a journal?
What kind works the best for you?
