When I look back at how dark I was when I started this journal, all I can say is “you’ve come a long way baby!”
That said, even when I am not participating in the April A-Z Challenge, I try to set a little time aside to write something every single day.
Sometimes I vent about things I can’t share with anyone. Sometimes I type until I cry, then generally feel relieved.
The accomplishment comes in the times I actually a finish my initial thought process, and post the crap to this silly electronic journal.
More than ten years later, I still find it empowering at how my looking inward (smashing these little black keys) can still produce something creative and free.
No matter what, I believe it all comes back to mindset. I swear a solid and clear mindset is the ultimate ignition switch to accomplishing whatever you put your mind to.
That, and a true desire to share mumble, jumbled, gobble-de-gook, with the masses! #yagottalaughaboutit

Coming up to a year without her, and I still ache because I miss her so much.

Recording one's thoughts, however bleak they may sometimes be, is a healthy outlet and necessary for balance.ReplyDelete
I sympathise with you over your loss of Puddin' - our dog leave enormous holes in our lives, and so it should be, otherwise why bother?
