My blog (and facebook posts) of late aren't meant to evoke sympathy or sadness. They're meant for two things:
1. Documentation (it's my blog about my life experiences and the world as seen through my eyes.)
My attitude has always been if I can do it, so can you. If I can keep a journal, you damn well can, too! If I can pour my heart and soul out onto the pages, so can you.
Keep it real.
I keep thinking of the peeps who say that journaling should only be about happy things.
Are you fucking kidding me?
Journaling should be about your LIFE and life ain't always gumdrops and roses.
Keep it real. Keep it you.
If I could offer any words of advice to a journal artist just cracking open a book for the first time, there they are. Of course "'dems may be fighting words" to some but I always stand by what I say (as well as by what I write.)
Try it. Crack it open. See what happens.
