I was reading the epilogue today to “My Life Cracks Me Up” by Rick Cormier and he talks about having two journals.
One is on a notepad or even a legal pad where you write negative things down and can rip them up, or to me also shred and burn them. So we have a lot of thoughts that like to sticks with us, I know I do.
And then you keep journals with positive thoughts that you can come back to when you need it.
I like this idea a lot. I do the Three Good Things every day on the Facebook but of course that gets lost in the ether of social media. I see it once a year with the “On This Day” feature.
And I feel like there is some stuff that I would love to have leave my head through a pen and get tossed into the shredder.
What do you think?
