I write in a journal because it’s my means of being accountable and honest with myself. I write in a journal because I collect small moments from life to add my thoughts and responses, making them mine. From that place springs what I write publicly. I write publicly because I believe that committing to having a point of view and scheduling a time and place to say something is improving my thinking, attitude, and trajectory (and I’d do it even if no one was reading).
If you also feel this way, we belong to the same gang!
