Writing

One thing I really love to do is write. I’m an expressive person by nature with lots of thoughts and ideas that spill into my head at any given time. I realized recently that I have no vehicle through which to do justice to all that. So I took myself to exclusive books and got myself a gorgeous little moleskin book and some nice pens! With the new year having started I’ve decided to journal more. I encourage you to all keep a journal or diary of some kind to keep track and record things. Going to Spain, Portugal and New York this year should see me filling up quite a few pages!  I believe in balancing your life – physical, social, mental and spiritual. Journalism is a great way to achieve that balance. 

After journaling for about a week, I’ve realized a few things: 

  1. I have a better idea of what 2012 was like.
  2. I have a better idea of what I want 2013 to look like.
  3. I take for granted how lucky and blessed I am. 
  4. I much prefer old-fashioned pen and paper to the screen and keyboard!

Do you journal? What do you use it for – to spill your thoughts? To share your fears? Recap your day?
