Handwritten


I obviously really enjoy blogging, but as much as I enjoy it there are some things I just won't put online. Instead, I write about those things in my journal. I've been keeping one since freshman year of high school - so over six years now, and it's one of the best things I've ever decided to do. I started it kinda on a whim - like I had my stepdad take me to Walgreens or something after school one day so I could buy a composition notebook, and I've been doing it ever since. Honestly, I'm surprised I've actually kept up with a journal for so long considering how spontaneous my decision was to start one. But like I said, I'm happy I have. 

Unfortunately, last April life kinda took off, and I didn't write an entry for over a year. Yeah, I can't believe I went that long without writing something down, but last week I decided to sit down and get myself caught up on everything that has happened this year. It feels good to finally get caught up as weird as that sounds. I feel like I've been going a mile a minute recently with barely any time to catch my breath, but getting back into my journal is making things slow down, and it's making me feel more grounded. I've been reminded of a great outlet where I can be totally honest with myself and can sort out all my thoughts and emotions. It's so therapeutic. Hopefully I never go this long without putting pen to paper ever again.

What's your favorite kind of therapy?
