I have come to realize that blogging, or journaling for that matter, is easier for me when things are roses and sunshine.  I know, I know, real life happens and it is okay to be sad, upset, or disappointed and I understand that sometimes if you talk about it it makes things better.  I got it, really I promise, but I just don't operate like that.  I am more of a think it through myself, take action, report back when things are roses and sunshine kind of girl.  There are times when I appreciate sympathy but it generally annoys me.

In the last few days I have started hearing my journal calling to me.  Now what I'm thinking I need to write is all disjointed and out of order but I have come to terms with that and my OCD side is prepared to deal with it too. LOL.  Luckily, I collaged an entire journal while I was thinking things through and refusing to write about it and have it ready to go for such an occasion.

I realized today that my hang up was that in the past I had come to a point where I was able to photograph all of my journal pages and post them on my blog for people to see and I was torn.  While I want to be able to show my journal pages I also want to keep the ideas on them private.  (See, believe it or not some people actually read the words and sometimes even comment on them. LOL!) Then it hit me.... I could photograph them with no writing and still  post them.  After all a blog with no pictures is no fun and there are only so many times you can post that you are really art journaling again without proving it. :)
