I’m decluttering and consolidating old journal entries. 

Did you ever look back on your old journals? Were you smart? Locked in unhelpful patterns? Did you recognize yourself? 

It’s very interesting to see what changes and what stays the same.

I probably have about 10 journals none of them completely filled up. consolidating them would make too much sense. And yes I do look back at them. Emotionally I am just about the same.

I have several journals of strange things that have happened to me and people that I know and it is interesting to go back in time to read what was going on at the time. I love keeping journals, and recently I have found new types of journals that ask questions on each page or have you write about things from childhood. I got two of them and have been working on them. Haha! Gemini Moon wants two of everything. But these new journals are really neat.

I have quite a few with different time periods in them, lots of empty pages, which is why I’m ripping out then will order chronologically. 

I notice I write when I’m aggravated. It’s not about anything wonderful going on. I’ve resolved a lot but my complaints are always about the same things. I wasn’t sure if I should be disgusted or feel sorry for myself.

I must have some stashed around here. I haven’t journaled in a couple of years. It’s quite interesting reading what bothered me, what was on my mind. Some happy things were so simple. That’s a good thing, too.

I have a couple of old journals from many years ago stored in a box in the closet.  I haven’t looked at them in years.  Most of my thoughts for the past 20 years are in  computer documents.  Just a hodge-podge of a lot of things.  I think my whole life is on my computer.  Its fairly well organized in folders, but still out of control.  I’m a digital pack-rat.  I just like to keep writing but am not so good at purging.

I can’t journal it makes me feel extremely vulnerable so kudos to everyone for making the effort. 

Have compassion for yourself in the old stuff sometimes the mind just jabbers and wants to get the words out. Like cleaning out the fridge.

I write when I am about as low emotionally as I can go, my poetry comes out then also.

Usually in a dark place. The writing actually gets me out of my head and lets me reflect on what is really going on.
