Bought a journal

I decided to start paper journaling.  I had forgotten how much I liked it.  I began in my late teens and still have journals from over the years.  I stopped, I think, because I began to journal in public online.  But the entry i wrote yesterday in my paper journal was cathartic.  That's what I'd forgotten.  That you are completely honest and emotionally transparent when you are talking only to yourself.  No worries about how others will perceive you or judge you.

What a great idea! That would be a very interesting thing for you to sit down and read a few years from now.
