Keeping a written journal has been one of the best outlets for my mind since I started it. The act of writing down my deep thoughts onto paper via a fountain pen has really allowed me to reflect on events in my life and the world. Many of them never make it up to social media or my site, and that is how it should be. But sometimes, there is something I write that just hits it home.
Days ago I wrote down the following lines into my Journal. Each day, it echoed in my head. Little did I know just writing these words would refocus my outlook for 2017:
I am vulnerable; I have exposed myself to the world.
Fear will not hold me in a cage no longer.
I think next year is going to be an interesting year.
