How about you? How do you find positive things to write about in these troubled times? Do you think the written word has the power to effect positive change?
I tend to lean towards the negative when I write in my journal. When I write stories it is all positive. I don't reread what I write in my journal, usually, and when I do it like reading another person journal at times. Do I think what I write has any effect on any one. Not really. I have hard time thinking I have any effect on anyone. It is the kind of question that I have come to not think about often because it leads me to more questions then answers. I suffer from depression and low self esteem so when I think about why I do something leads me to ... I don't know why.... Which leads me to what is the point in doing it? I don't know why... I guess to make me happy. Does what I write here or anywhere make a difference to someone? I find it hard to believe that little old me makes difference but I guess that is the low self esteem. My husband says that what I do with this blog makes others happy who read it. I just know I do it because I like it (most of the time) and because it feels productive since I have alot of time in the day and it is better then sleep. Whether it effect you the reader ...well it would be nice if I did have a good effect on you but I kinda doubt whether I effect anything through out your day or your life.
