I was journaling in front of my friend Jim. He’s in his late sixties and was looking at what I was doing. I asked him, “Do you journal?” he looks away with a half scoff and says no. People react this way with many different questions, “Do you meditate?”, “Have you called your mother?”, “Did you go to bed at a reasonable hour last night?” We react this way because maybe our lives could benefit from these behaviors. Even just a little. So why don’t we do something about it? Why continue to sit on our asses and mope? Do the work. Share your art. Get better. No more complacency. No more hating yourself when you look in the mirror. Go journal.
