i’ve pulled from the archives of an old journal for today’s post.
sometimes i think it is healthy to look back, to see where you were, what you were feeling, how you were processing, and then to tie it into your current standing.
looking at this, this moment in time where i penned my heart out, i was really, really broken. a variety of things led up to this dream and the dawn that swiftly approached afterwards. i found myself drowning in feelings…and not knowing how to process them.
thankfully i no longer feel this way. i am solid in my thoughts towards this individual and have moved on. broken hearts will leave pieces behind though, so i’m sure – over time – a little chip will nick me here and there. but it won’t ever be the same, the winds have changed, the currents have moved, and my ship has sailed elsewhere.
moments like these, personal – in depth moments – i worry about posting. maybe worry is a strong word, i feel vulnerable posting them. sharing a piece of your soul with the world, no matter how small your corner is, can be challenging.
but i truly believe that every experience we walk through gives us a way to connect with others. maybe my broken heart from this still morning will connect with others.

I listened to the song while I read through your journal and I'm touched. I feel closer to you in a way. As I read this, it reminded me of a similar journal I wrote a few years back. It's amazing how God brings us through seasons and then on to the next.
This so beautiful! X
One day, you and I will sit on a couch together (or in a coffee shop) and just hang and talk about life. What an entry to be able to look back on and see where God has brought you from, to where you are now. Another way to show us that seasons really are just for a moment!
This is what your journal writing sounds like? Wow. That's beautiful. I try to write like this sometimes, but then it just sounds dump and I give up.
