Today I am thankful for journaling. I was up early this morning thinking about some important things. It was so nice to be able to grab my journal and pour my thoughts out on paper. It helped me figure things out and see things from a bigger perspective.
Journaling is like talking to a friend. It seems like when you start talking or writing about what you're thinking about you immediately start unraveling things you couldn't see before and solutions you've been looking for. While friends are not always available, a journal is. And sometimes it's just better to figure things out on your own than sharing it with other people.
I have many boxes filled with journals now. Treasures indeed. And what a gift they've given me to help me understand my life better and to record the stories of my life that are so quickly forgotten. Thank you journals.
