Writing Pictures & Poems

Journaling to me, is keeping a hard copy of your thoughts words and visual interactions. By recording and writing them down, sketching, taking photographs, crafting, collecting and saving.

So it’s not a diary, as I first thought! Well not in my world it isn’t. It’s a record of things that make my heart sing, events sights and sounds, thoughtful words and kind actions things that need remembering or developing.

I did not journal before lockdown, I never seemed to have the time. During the time at home things popped into my head ideas, catch phrases, quotes, observations, pictures, drawings. I just started making a note.

Its not about meeting dates and official criteria, its about everyday situations, enjoyment and laughter, its about personal wellbeing. 

Noting and remembering the good stuff.
