I still believe that it is best to keep a journal for us to jot down our dreams, aspirations, emotions and frustrations. There is still beauty in handwritten thoughts rather than seeing it online with different fonts. I started writing my random feelings way back in high school and that includes crazy poems, love sick thoughts, frustrations, bucket lists for the year, letters to God and so on… If I am bored, I reread those stuffs and laugh on how absurd it is, cry on memories that I explained in detail, smile on achievements that I had, frown on how stupid I am by falling inlove with the wrong one and feel inspired to write more. I don’t regret it though, it reminds me of how strong I am today because of what happened in the past may it be good or bad. Life is full of twists and turns and you will thank God for what you have become today. My journal reflects the real me, I am not saying I am fake but it is where I can just write about anything, lifting each burden to God and just like what the cover states — It is indeed my anchor of hope.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”
