This is the 2nd time in my life that I am not employed since the age of 15, I am trying to enjoy this summer with my boys for the first time and also, trying to focus on getting a few things completed that I have been putting off. I am in the process of returning to school to finish my degree in public administration, kicking off a new healthier me, reading more and watching less tv. I am also trying to get back into being more of a minimalism.
My journal is friends only, I alternate between it being public and private, but whenever I am going through some transition in my life I like to keep it private. I mostly update about life, what is bothering me at the time or anything else going on. I'm a christian so you will see me write about prayer, what my faith means to me and how I feel about it.
Mostly I like to document my life, because on days when I wonder how I will ever get over whatever is going on, I like to re-read my past entries and see that we're all survivors...."this too shall pass".
