Yet another noun turned into a verb.

I am trying a 31 day journal thing. I discovered during day one where I had to write why I was doing it that there are reasons both deep and shallow.

The deeper and more worthy reason is that it is supposed to be a great way of handling stress and increasing general well being. Apparently it is particularly important to express gratitude on a daily basis and I know that is something with which I occasionally struggle. I have a lot to be grateful for, but sometimes it's too easy to concentrate on the things that are not quite how you want them to be.

The shallow reason is that I have a lot of notebooks and pens and I am struggling to find excuses to use them and therefore probably justification for buying more of them. I also want to carry on improving my handwriting.

It looks like I'll be able to get some more sun today as well before heading to the airport this afternoon.

    I'm sure it's good - I tried "epistling" whilst stressed this time last year - writing a letter to the perpetrator of my stress each night, in a journal.
    handwriting improvement can't be bad!
    How was Paris?

  2. I'm on my way there now.
    At least I have control over whether or not this will get read. Don't know which will end up having a more profound effect.
