Keep a journal

I have journals all over the place. I keep one going for a few months and then set it aside and forget about it. A few months later I start again. I draw pictures, write fiction, compose poetry, whatever. Most of the time I know it won’t make sense to anyone but me, and then sometimes I can’t make much sense of what I write myself, but it’s worth it. It helps to put things down on paper so you can see your thoughts and feelings, instead of ruminating endlessly on them.
