Whether journaling online, in a paper book or just posting photos of our lives eating sushi, keeping a record of our life is important. It helps us to look back on the past and remember the good, the bad and lessons for the future.
Looking back on the past is often hard to do when faced with your own mistakes. Yes, it’s true that hindsight is 20-20, but it’s complicated when knowing your own view of things that transpired will often lack the full truth and understanding of all who were involved.
From our time at school, to our first jobs and our first loves to our personal and work relationships. The stories in our heads are just a small slice of what really happened. In someone else’s story we are the villain. In another review, we are the love intrest.
I wish it was possible to gather all of those “other stories” and really know our selves better. Could you imagine seeing yourself though someone else’s eyes? Though their lenses of rose or envy or hate. It would be hard, but it would be amazingly informative. Hopefully it would improve you.
To understand why someone stopped talking to you or what you did that made them angry. What you did to make them happy or fall in love. Or what they feel now and where they are in their life’s journey.
I lost a loved one recently and I wish I could look back at her life though “journals” to understand them better. With her loss, it’s the beginning of a new era. My father is now “The old man”, the new Grandpa. I wish him luck in taking on that standard bearer.
So here’s my journal entry for the week. I’m working on a new project! AConversationWith.Me & AConversationWith.Us It should be something amazing, it’s still brand new but wish me luck!
Good night, God Bless and Peace be with you! X3
