A Journaling Thought
I think there is something we all could journal about here in the United States. It's that of the year 2020. There has never been a year like it in our history.
Even if we have journaled about it, we could probably journal about it some more. With a new perspective. Because we might have slept since we last did so. Moreover, it never hurts to journal more about something.
Just a little soapbox: Whoever came up with the term social distancing? The correct term is physical distancing. We live in an era where we have more socialization tools and capabilities than we have ever had in history. We live in a time where a lot of people can work from home and have online meetings and meet-ups. We have cell phones, email, texting, and so forth. We are not social distancing. We are keeping proper physical distance. There is a big difference.
A Journaling Tip
Even if you've journaled about something before... And even if you think you write the same thing, and even if you are, write it out again. Because I guarantee you will not write it in the exact same manner as you did before. Moreover, the very act of journaling it on the page could tickle the muse and get her to produce more results and inspire us to journal more and give us ideas on what we can capture on the page.
