Managing this Life One Pen Stroke at a Time

Jackie Maher
My Journaling Story
I love to write with pen and paper. I didn’t grow up with a computer or word processor, so typing doesn’t feel as satisfying to me; I still am a lover to the feel of ink over paper.

I don’t have a “pretty” journal. I feel stifled trying to write my smeary thoughts in something beautiful. I like to write sideways, around corners, in circles and back to front. I write in whatever color I am feeling. I like the “messy” of my journal; I tape notes, prayers and pictures inside the covers and all over it.

My journal is where I keep hopes, fears and wishes. It is my therapist 24/7 and one medium I use to communicate with my Higher Power, the Universal Consciousness. It is “who” I talk to at 3 a.m. when I just need to be heard. It is where some of my most original and mundane ideas are held. My soul needs a dedicated arena to pour out upon, an airing out on the page. Someday I may have a pretty journal with metallic-edged bird wings and weighty pages, but right now my 50 cent composition book is exactly what I need. (I found it in a stack of notebooks in my daughter’s room that was half-used from last years’ school work. I am a crazy recycler and hate waste, so this was a perfect find!)

In my journal, I write what I cannot yet say. I play with language and just “spill.” (Thank you Chives for that term and the freedom to just write!) I don’t worry about spelling or editing-I just unload some days and unpack it other days onto the waiting page.

I doodle sometimes and try not to cross out too much. I ask for what I need and tentatively scribble out my fears until I able to do so in spoken words. It is here that I also get answers from my Higher Intelligence when my pen seems to do the writing itself.

Grab a notebook and let yourself write. Give yourself permission to do whatever you need and write whatever you need to see on paper. Some days my writing starts with, “I don’t know what to write. I feel like a big faker sitting here with my coffee and starting at this page…” And the words almost always find their way out from there. If you are interested in this type of writing, read, Writing Down Your Soul by Janet Conner. It is heavy in spiritual language and for me that works.
If you worry about your journal being found and read, write on plain paper or the back of a printer page then shred it or crunch it up and toss it in the recycle bin. I have asked my family to respect my privacy of my journal and they do. I won’t feel safe to write if I feel like someone is compromising my privacy.

I carry my journal with me in my purse so I can write whenever I need to. Often, I leave a few inches in the margin so I can retrace my thoughts and discover recurrent themes that need more exploring.

Most often, I write first thing in the morning. I make some coffee, say my prayers and light a candle. I love the ritual of these practices, but I also love to write while I am on the bike at the gym with my earphones plugged into my phone or the screen. Usually, I’m not even listening to music; I just like the ear buds to be my “do not disturb” sign.

Rummage thru your junk drawer and find a notebook. I like to pick up a few spares during the “back to school” sales or whenever I see them on clearance.

Start writing and keep going. You will be amazed at what you will see and hear once you start.
Life is Practice; Practice is Life.

Namaste.
