Public or Private Journaling

I’m going to write a journal every day again. Sometimes it feels like a push, like tonight. I’m still going to do it.

This is an extension of my 30 days of writing to refresh my mind experiment. I feel good about the results. It’s not the first time I’ve journaled daily. It’s the latest.

I began debating whether to do take my thoughts private or leave them public. I’m going to leave them public. It’s part of my work to become more open, rather than closed, in life.

My hesitation came from not knowing how open I could be with my thoughts in public. I didn’t want the writing to become constrained by my fear of putting myself out there.

That’s familiar ground for me. I used to be very afraid of putting myself out there. It’s becoming more comfortable now. It’s still a work in progress.

I feel good about keeping these thought out in the open. Whether or not anyone finds or reads them, well, that’s a different story all together!
