Writing outside the box

  Journal writing is a voyage to the interior.  --Christina Baldwin
 

This box sits in my bedroom.  It is filled with sheets of journal entries that consist of thoughts occurring within my days.  My heart and soul are poured out in these writings that only my eyes have seen.  As far back as I can remember I have kept journals.  In recent years they seem to be more about inner thoughts then events in my life.  They are writings that put a perspective in my  journey.  While some things are certain in life, others need replenishing with self discovery that only I can obtain thru those inner thoughts.  So far, this seems to work for me.  :)  

Writing outside the box.... but held within.

This is one of my favorite entries.  My mom has boxes and boxes of her writing too,  she got me started on my journey also.  I still remember that 1st journal I received at on my 12th birthday.  She told me "Let your feelings be known, understand them, explore them."  Here I am 24 years later and 14 journals later.  I keep mine in a special place too.
Great entry
