Post number #504
Yesterday I procrastinated for ages reading my 'old' journals. (But 'old' I mean the-past-two-years-old. Older than that is way too depressing to read.) The funny thing was, I was inspired by my own writing. I love getting inspired by my own writing. Sometimes I was like 'OH YEAH THIS IS MY FEELING EXACTLY' (like of course. it's me writing) and sometimes it was like 'wowww, God has helped me in this so much' and sometimes it was like 'dude girl no. Stop it.' and sometimes it was like 'wow, nothing has changed, I wish more had changed since then and now.'
So basically this is me writing to myself, with a plea to myself. NAOMI. WRITE MORE. JOURNAL MORE. Because reading it back is good. Because writing thoughts and feelings down is therapeutic. And because writing down makes you mature in thoughts. And because you know that writing is your way to feel close to Jesus. So do it! Please. I know you're busy. I know it's more relaxing to watch documentaries about people designing tiny houses (so. much. fun. to. watch. LOL.) and I know that writing sometimes feels like a chore. BUT. GET BACK INTO DOING IT. Please. Thx.
(I really need and want to get back to journalling consistently.) (And I also want to reread the Bible.) (Let's do it, Naomi.)
PS: Some random recommendations because why not. :-D
THE BIBLE PROJECT PODCAST: Ahh, I'm listening to one right now (it's a 'justice'-themed Q & R and they're so good at answering all these big questions. And they are so nice. It's so nice to hear kind people talk haha.) Basically these guys always rock it. They always give me a new perspective on the Bible and themes and books. I haven't listened to that many so far, but the ones I've listened to have been very good.
"Maybe this isn't your creative highpoint (and that's okay)" by Amy --- this blog post was just what I wanted + needed to hear.
