Random Thoughts on Journaling
Having a day off feels pretty damn good. Sitting at the park today I realized that journaling can be quite nice and therapeutic. As as a child I used to always have a diary on hand. I was (and still am) obsessed with notebooks, paper – basically all things stationery. But then one day I left the whole writing to myself thing behind. I’d entered high school, and it simply wasn’t the cool thing to do anymore.
Or so I thought. Now, more than ten years later, I’m thinking of going back to writing down my random thoughts and whatever comes to mind without purpose. You know, let my creativity flow.
As a content editor, I write multiple stories every single day, however, journaling is nothing like the writing I do for a living. Jotting down whatever comes to mind is freestyle writing that doesn’t need to make sense, but hey if it does, then great! It’s a feeling that's freeing and liberating, and I’m thinking now, that’s why it probably feels like therapy.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to project and put out into the universe. What kind of content do I want to create, and how can I bring further amusement to my readers? They say sometimes you just need to take a step back to recharge in order to have a deeper sense of what you want to do.
So today I’ll be doing just that. Let’s see what I come up with.
