What Helps Me So Much

Sunday, November 24, 2013

I can finally say that I am in the habit of journaling. I write my goal of the day in one journal, my thoughts for the day in another, and an overview on the day before and what I want to concentrate on another journal. It's good to be able to see if I can actually accomplish what I set out to do, to see what I accomplished the day before, and to just jot down a few things that are on my mind. It's very therapeutic for me.

What is more therapeutic for me is reading everyone's blogs. It's good to know that there are people out there just like me. I love the people that are so upbeat and blog something that gets me motivated and thinking. I hope I can help the people out there that are struggling with a problem. I feel more connected to the world. Thanks to all you who do blog and share your lives with me. You help me so much.

    Well done you for journalling! Don't forget to read your older entries sometimes. You'll find that you're journal will tell you secrets about yourself you never knew! :-)

    You're Welcome! Thank you...

    Since this was my first time cleaning the church, I don't know if it's always the same people, but likely it is... since I am the second youngest at church, it's almost octogenarians... apparently one of the women who used to come will be 104 in Jan...God Willing of course. But, even staying for tea after service, always the same few.... oh well, the other people's loss! How are you supposed to get to know new people if they are not willing to put themselves out I said, their loss!!

    I have been considering trying to do an on-computer scrapbook , ie scan in bulletins or menus or something if I go somewhere special and/or tell who I met etc. like my blog from yesterday.... still thinking though, NOT doing yet...

    I'm glad to hear you are getting into journaling! My sixth grade English teacher had our class write everyday.....and it's carried over into my adult life. *I actually have those journals from elementary/high school! It kind of funny looking back at what was important to me, and the change in handwriting lol

    I find it helpful to dump all my emotions and thoughts from the day into a blog. It's an added bonus to be able to share my thoughts, and find others who are also struggling, or those to offer support~it's a great blessing!

    Keep writing

    I"m glad to hear your journaling is helping you, that's wonderful! And yeah, reading other people's blogs is very motivational for me too. It's easy to feel very alone sometimes, and coming here reminds me that I'm not.

    Hope you're having a great Sunday!
