Up until 2004 or so, my journal pages usually were about what I did, who I was with, etc... They told bits and pieces of my daily life (often routine) and rarely ever spoke of anything deeper than what I did that day. One day it changed completely. Looking back at my pages I can see that it was world events and my attitude towards them that shaped my journaling into what it is today. I started to write about my feelings, thoughts and anything other than what I was doing at that moment.
At the suggestion of a few friends (okay, more the constant loving nagging), I started sharing these pages on my blog. I was a bit anxious about sharing them but realized that by posting my pages I could possibly encourage others to do the same and open up on their own journal pages.
It's not hard for me to open up and spill onto my pages. I've been keeping a journal for so long. Yet at the same time, even with all of my openness, honesty and raw vulnerability on my pages, I want to go deeper. That's what I'm going to push for as we enter 2014. I hope that you'll come along on the journey with me.
