In My Journal

As I was flipping through my journal tonight, I realized that I don’t just use it as a place to go on and on about what’s bothering me; it’s also where I put down my ideas. Now I’ll admit that I don’t/can’t follow through on most of them, but the process of brainstorming is so pleasurable that it’s really nice to have some record of this. It gives me the feeling I’m accomplishing something worthwhile even when I’m really not. (On the other hand, I’m sure I’d thrive in an alternate universe where the only important thing would be to have ideas—and not to feel under any pressure to follow through on them).

You should see my ideas journal, it's very disorganized. At least I have moved on from scribbling things down on random pieces of paper.

Your journal is a work of art.

I love ideas journals like yours. I never write down what's bothering me; I sort it out in my head! But I do jot down ideas and doodles. Yours, though, is a work of art! xox

Oh what a wonderful page. I love the way you write your thoughts as a web, the design, the sketches and your words. Really nice! roxanne
