A notebook

January 13, 2014


In the past few months, I’ve loved keeping a small notebook with me all the time, for jotting down to do lists, thoughts, favorite quotes, goals, doodles, whatever. I also write affirmations. We’re so bombarded with advertising, propaganda, etc, over the course of every day that it’s vital to remind ourselves of the truth, the way things really are. I had a funny moment with this in Ljubljana. I arrived a day before my friends and was feeling depressed about wandering the rainy, foggy city on my own. I stopped for a coffee in a cafe, alone, and opened my notebook to this exact page, with its insistent large pink letters. That really cracked me up. It was a spiritual moment. (You are not alone.)

    Despite what people say about born alone/die alone, I believe that they were just bitter people. 😉 Alone but not lonely. How about some cheapish pop/rock philosophy. 😉

      it’s a great thing to have in your purse for times when you’re waiting for something… and it’s so fun to look back on later!
