I think somewhere along the way my Diary entries ended up transforming into a blog, and when I realized that earlier today, it really startled me. I know, “startled” is kind of an extreme word choice, but you need to understand why I started doing this to begin with: to record my thoughts, feelings, and days events in a bonafide diary that I was going to bravely share with the world. I wanted to use it as a candid window into my mind, my soul, and treat it above all else as a real diary that I was choosing to make public.
Looking back on some of my past entries, I think I lost sight of that.
See? Brutal honesty. The original goal of this thing to begin with.
I contemplated shutting my Diary down and just updating people through my monthly newsletters and various social media posts and leaving it at that, but the more I considered it, the more uneasy I felt, and I came to eventually realize that I need this in my life. I need an outlet to funnel the day’s events and emotions to so I can sleep peacefully at night.
So my Diary isn’t going anywhere.
It will, however, be changing to a more personal, raw, open format.
Be prepared. I’m not all smiles and goofiness.
But then, I’m not not either. 😃
Chew on that for a while.
