My Mom

My Mom

My mom loved to read. I vividly remember being four years old and sitting across from her in the living room on a terrible brown striped polyester sofa watching her read with a book in my hands. When she would turn a page, then I would turn a page. Mimicking her...

Why I Write Serial Fiction

Why I Write Serial Fiction

Do you love to read, but can't find the time to do it? Normally the only time I cracked a book open for pleasure was on my once a year weekly vacation to Minnesota. That's all, I couldn't otherwise fit it into my life.  I'd check out books, but then the stress of...

Curiouser & Curiouser

Curiouser & Curiouser

I am naturally curious, good thing I am not a cat, we all know what happened to that poor thing. During my life I have always wondered and tinkered and figured things out and learned about things that interested me. I learned about commodities, and investments, and...

Are You a Firefighter or an Architect?

Are You a Firefighter or an Architect?

There are two schools of people. There are those that design their lives, set goals, and achieve and there are those that let life happen and react to it. You can either live in the high stress reactionary place or you can choose the carefully plotted and curated life...

Logic Can Suck it.

Logic Can Suck it.

I have journaled for most of my life. For as long as I can remember it is a place for me to dump the stuff in my brain and clear it out so I can focus on other things. It also became a place to document the things that have happened so I could refer to them later....

Velvet Guild: Why?

Velvet Guild: Why?

Life is busy. I totally get it. I am a single mom, working a full time job and pursuing my dream to be an author during the hours I should be sleeping. Free time? That’s a laughable concept, so I get you. I know your time is extremely limited and I know you need an...

WHY JOURNALING?

I have journaled for nearly 38 years. Off and on as a child and teenager, stopping mostly out of fear of having my innermost feelings and thoughts on display for a pesky brother to find and mock me for his own amusement. As an adult I have found it tremendously helpful.  Going through 3 years of back to back tramas it was the only thing that helped me sort it all out. As you journal the truth appears on the pages, whether you want it to or not. Your heart speaks through your fingers and whether you write it manually or type it out, the words seem to bypass your mind and the insight it can give you into yourself is mind blowing. You can journal yourself out of devastating events, and you can journal your way through sheer joy so you can recall it anytime you need that extra boost.

The truth always comes out. Now you can choose to follow that guidance or go the other way. I did the other way for a nice long time and I can say from experience that is a bad idea, but hey, you’re living your own life and I don’t want to judge you. God knows, my life has been riddled with bad decisions.

Journaling also clears the gunk, the mental junk that this life deposits in your mind. It calms the crazy and helps clear the pain. It gives you a clean slate to start the morning fresh.

Try it and see. It is a gift to give yourself 30 minutes to center and clear. It works wonders if you give it a chance.

It is also important that your best friend know where you store them or be given passwords. Because in the event of your death, you’ll want them destroyed. No one should be subjected to that level of crazy. Stacy, this means you.
