So Sweet

Did you see that cute Lily Pulitzer cell phone case on my "What I'm Loving Wednesday" post? Well, they also have a matching notebook and pen.

I was considering getting the notebook and pen because I really wanted to start journaling. I know I blog, but a lot of the stuff going on right now, I just don't want everyone to read. It is personal and I'm just dealing with my own inner turmoil. It is Debbie Downer kind of material, ha!

I ended up not getting the notebook ($9) and pen ($20) because it was a little pricey. I'm broke right now. Sucks...

Guess what though? My amazing manager bought the notebook for me. How sweet is that? I started journaling today for the first time in a while and I have to say, it really makes you feel better!

Does anyone else do a journal just for yourself?

That is so sweet of your manager! It's a beautiful notebook.

I have always been an avid journal-keeper. I wrote a lot when my family moved to Florida and my parents got divorced. As I got older I got away from it.

Since I am good at keeping up with a blog but not a written journal, I have considered starting a "secret" blog that is just for me - password protected, etc. I like the format, I guess, and I always start actual writing with the best intentions and fall away from it quickly. I keep up with blogs, though.

No matter how you do it, I'm glad you have an outlet for your thoughts. Isn't writing such a helpful way to process things? I'm glad you have that. I hope you're doing okay!

That was REALLY nice! :) Writing is so therapeutic! Whenever I get a lot of emotions to sort through, I take to writing--it really helps!
