Not So Different...

Not_so_different I found some old journals the other day that I kept when I was a teenager.  I had such a passion back then to write and write some more!  I wrote about a lot of things, but mostly the difficult things in my life, which isn't so surprising when one considers how difficult the teenage years can be.  As I read the entries, I realized that I felt things so deeply and wasn't afraid to express the way I felt. I cherish these journals.  I realized that no matter how difficult things were for me at times, I came through them.  Writing down my thoughts helped me to put things into perspective. I find this to be true today as I create art in my journals.  I know one day I will look back on these journals and see progress, growth and that I am not so different...
