Write It Down
Write it down. All of it. Preferably on paper. I am a chronic journalist who keeps many journals. I recently packed up a box of them for my attic.
My journal patterns have varied over the years. Sometimes they are bullet points and other times they are prayers written long hand. Lately they begin with gratitude bullet points and then longer accounts of our crazy world.
I was recently reminded of why I write. @laura.tremaine and @emilypfreeman both talk about capturing our current events in our own words. And I have found it to be healing.
Today, I am encouraging you to WRITE IT DOWN. Go buy a notebook today and capture all of this in your own words. Start a blog or simply a Google doc. But do for yourself and your family.
