For years, I would run to a notebook everyday and write about anything and everything. Somedays I would write lyrics/poems, and other days I would simply hash out what was going through my brain. It was a great practice and it really meant a lot to me. Journaling allowed me to sort out my emotions and beliefs. It was also the most intimate time I ever had with my creator. I also felt like God was there when I would write, more so than when I would pray (though journaling can definitely BE prayer). In the past 4 years or so, however, I’ve maybe journaled a handful of times. I keep meaning to get back to it, but put off. Well today I’m back on the horse.
I consider myself a tech nerd. Rather than get distracted by technology, I’m trying to use it to focus on my goals. Formally I would journal the old fashioned way, with pen and paper, but now I am going to use Evernote. With it I can satisfy my desire to play with my gadgets while also accomplishing something that is important to me. Winning!
