No one knows what can happen in a day. Even half an hour. The fluctuations of a moment can be wayyyyy overwhelming. You can feel happy, scared af, confused, and hopeful simultaneously.
That's the complexity of the human brain / vessel.
And some people are more complex than others with the way they approach things.
The stigma of the Journal comes from the idea of the "diary" = thanks to cult films and teenage dramatics, the idea of the journal has been dumbed down a bit. "Oh my god...you have a diary?" // "Journaling is a bit much don't you think?" Yes. It is a bit much. Because it's a bit necessary.
Blogs = are journals.
Posts = are journals.
But these are a bit more public.
And as necessary as a private one is, some people were meant to have their lives put more publicly so we can learn from them. We can learn from anything.
And some, have to learn more about themselves, and keep it next to their bed rather than for social positivity.
Some do both.
What I'm getting at is : you don't have to be a writer, a teenager, a philosopher, or a dramatist to sit down and reevaluate absolutely everything.
Because there may be questions lingering that you never got around to ever answering.
Because they travel back in and around through time.
Writing them down, forces you to face them.
To question yourself. The way you view things. WHY.
And if there's a solution.
The most private of questions and statements can be addressed on pages. You can put them away, come back to them later, and see the differences made.
I've already filled this journal of 100+ pages of all my fears. And how to kill them. Admittance is a lol, but a necessary one. And without even realizing, transformations, evolutions and magic begin to turn.
By solely looking at your thoughts.
Rather than just thinking them.
Getting outside of your head is a must. A real must.
Take action. And look into a different kind of mirror.
I didn't know what to expect when beginning to watch the documentary Icarus on Netflix.
And it was more of a need to watch than I knew.
I'm still in shock over Grigory Rodchenkov's story.
I recommend this documentary, highly.
