For the last several years, I have kept a written journal. It basically is a way to write down all the things that have been important in my life. I don't always write in it daily, sometimes its weeks before I make an entry and it may be just a quick note. It is a very important and peaceful process for me to actually sit in a quiet and beautiful place and take a few moments for Some of my favorite places to sit and journal are at the lake or my patio. The fresh air may have something to do with how grateful I feel when I am able to relax and take an inventory of the previous weeks. I think everyone should have some sort of ritual that brings them comfort. This for me is one of my graceful pleasures. I hope you have some of your own to enjoy.
