oh so lucky

Thanks so much to all of you for your lovely and brilliant comments! I feel like I'm back in J.land now! You are all so wonderful and all so talented in your own ways. Do you know we are all writers! Fantastic isnt it!!  And Sara!!! NOOO way are your comments ever gonna be too long!

You have all given me so much to think about - I think the one word that struck me was from Marie  and thats 'connect'. We all connect to one and other through our journals - we can touch each other from across the pond! From one end of the country to another - touch each other with words! I'm beginning to think of visual ideas now!! Sort of LOL.

I find also that I can write more honestly in my journal than I would when I'm actually talking to a friend or relative.  It's easier because no-one can interrupt you. You know that you have your reader's total undivided attention. And somehow, when your down sometimes - the words flow from your heart down through your arms out of your fingertips and into the computer relieving you of pain or worry - its a kind of release!! Do you agree?

Love Lainey xxxxx

I agree with you. I find that writing in my journals -helps empty out negativeness, those things we too often hold onto. Sharing out ups and downs, life's moments, with others is very helpful.

Our journals are certainly a therapy of sorts. I often feel much better after an entry if I`m feeling a bit down.  I love your dog, what a beauty. :o))

I completely agree ~ that was going to be part of my response to your request for what we get out of the internet etc.  Through my journal or just online in general I can be myself.  I don't feel like I have to hide, for example in work instances I don't tell people I'm a queen fan but online I can be what I want and that means being me!!  I hope that makes sense??!!
