I have journaled forever it seems. It helped to sort my feelings and ideas. It helped me focus a mind that constantly sought new experiences. I have read since I was a little girl and hid away with a good story…….avoiding the call to other tasks. Words excited my imagination and took me to places I couldn’t go physically.
Life and survival took me in many directions mostly with music or numbers. Journaling and reading always helped me personally to maintain my search for me and my ultimate development as a spiritual being.
