Having woken up one morning to the news of the passing of a beloved uncle when I was 12. I am sure has affected a large part of my adult life as I try to go on with life. What came from that experience was the ability to sit in my room and allow my feelings and emotions to pour itself onto a blank sheet of paper. Experience the gift of poetry, not from an educated or literature sense but just the act of being, of doing it. Feeling where I was in the moment and allow myself to share what I was feeling in a journal. I think that is why social media has become so powerful in today's world and mental illnesses have been on the rise. I have been caught in thay as well with the distraction away from sitting down with myself and my thoughts and a blank piece of paper. The great thing about Journaling is there are no grades, no judgements and no critiques on what you write :)
