It started with an idea from one of my childhood friends. He had posted on Facebook that if one journaled daily, it would greatly improve ones mood. I need a mood lifter. I’ve spent so much time under the weather and my mood has been impacted negatively. I need to move past this somehow.
Yesterday I decided to attend a party thrown by one of my friends. My principal from high school rode up in the elevator with me, and she asked me if I was still writing. I told her no, and she told me that I’m a good writer, that I should get back doing that. I never thought myself as a good writer. Half the time I’m not even sure I took myself seriously in what I wrote, what I put out there, what I said.
It was as if my principal had shown up in just the right time and place to remind me of something I loved so long ago and seemed to just have discarded as time went by. It’s time to start all over and to seriously try all over. I may not be perfect with it and yes, that’s completely okay.
