Rather than always feeling as though I have to keep a long journal, I'm going to try to record one thought - be it sentence, word, phrase, poem, memory, etc. - per day.
I have 5 entries from when I first had this idea two years ago. 6 days into the new year I was hospitalized and the journal remained empty.
This year, I will have 365 entries. And they will be wonderful. Or horrible. But they will all exist.
