So previously I said I would start doing some "journaling" here. This is literally the 4th attempt, 6 days later. I think what it comes down to is the word "journaling"...it sounds an awful lot like "work". While not at all afraid of work, things that "seem" like work that aren't, have never been held in the highest regard by me. Work is work. If it was fun, they wouldn't call it that...they'd call it fun, duh. You wouldn't ever hear, "Ugh...Monday...gotta go back to FUN."
I feel the same way about exercise. Don't call it that! I've been riding my bike a lot lately. LOVE it. It's FUN! Exercise is simply a pleasant by-product of the FUN.
Back to "journaling". The term also implies, to me, I should be jotting down all my deepest and darkest bits. I've done that, and while incredibly important to get out, who wants to live in the dark? So dear reader(s), how 'bout this...I ain't gonna think of it as "journaling" any more. I'm gonna write to express myself, say what I want to say. Gee...no one on the internet does that, this is some groundbreaking stuff here!
To my friend Bob...It is good to be alive! Thanks for radiating your joy.
