Journaling & Tinkering

Last summer, after reading Manton’s post about journals, I decided to start journaling. It’s been a very healthy practice for me, and often when I have something memorable, I’ll jot it down for my journal, rather than let it drift away.

It’s helped me discover a few things about myself and where life has taken me over the past few months. Here’s an excerpt from a recent entry.

I’m worried a little bit that I’ve given myself over to the idea that I’m too busy to try new things. I remember in the past that when I worked more hours, and despite having kids, I would find time to write more, do more, tinker more.

Add to that, this older post from Daniel Jalkut where he reminds us as well as himself that even though our gut reaction when it comes to new stuff is to say no, what we need to do is find ways to say yes to the things that move us in the direction we want to go.

So I’m working on a few new things, and I’m excited to show more soon. Oh and we have a baby boy due next month, so I’m sure I’ll have something to talk about.
