Hello-new member to group

Just found this group and wanted to introduce myself. I live in England and have been journalling for around ten years. My journals are a mix of arty stuff and writing. They keep me constantly amused and bring calm and serenity to my life. The biggest challenge for me is to rid myself of the Journal Police who constantly sit upon my shoulder criticising anything they perceive as imperfect!

Best thing about a paper journal - Nothing Matters!
No one will see it
Today doesn't have to be like yesterday
Tomorrow can be anything you want
Your journal is your own world
Just Be
