Personal ( 2/15 )

Nothing to mark off here, but I have found a solution to Journaling. Since I was in high school, I always wished that I was the girl who could write pages and pages of thoughts and feelings out and really have something great to look back on. I’ve started dozens of journals to only write in them for a few days (or once) and then not pick them up again for over a year. I have found that If I keep a word document open on my computer that I am more likely to type out a few thoughts when I need a little brain break. I’ve been doing this consistently, so I think that I am on my way to a win!
