about daily journaling

the challenge of October
to write in a paper journal everyday
for me it is habit
but it was not always so

i began as a teenager
as so many do
but it was always sporadic
too busy - too tired
life got in the way of writing

then i had a baby
my journal was the only place
i could speak my truth
about motherhood
tired as i was
my journal was my trusted place

and so it became habit
and grew
a place to shape my life

i am impressed
with those who share their journals
the cleverness
the honesty
the creativity

the site potusgeeks has been writing
about presidents who journaled
John Quincy Adams
who began to journal at age 12
wrote his last entry
a poem unfinished about a pen
