too busy not to

I love to journal... to write. It is refreshing to get the thoughts that are flitting around in my head onto paper, to watch my thoughts flow through my pen, and to read the thoughts that I had in years past. Let's be honest, that part is funny. But lately I have fallen out of the habit. I felt as if I was too busy to journal. But as I wrote in my journal this morning, I have realized that....

 I am, in reality, too busy not to journal.

 So this morning, I pulled out my thick spiral bound notebook and a Sharpie, and wrote for a just a moment. I love my little writing spot. It's where I feel most inspired. What do you think?

I will definitely be doing this more often, now that I have remembered how much I love chronicling the little moments in life that I don't want to forget. 

Do you journal? I'd love to know if you do! I think of blogging as journaling too, but there's just nothing like writing in a special little book full of the randomness that is your life. That's my two cents' worth. :) 

Happy Wednesday!
