Some months I write in it every day. Other times, several months pass without a single entry.
I fill the pages with things that inspire me, things I want to think about, new ideas, possibilities, etc.
Mostly, it's a place for hope.
One entry includes some words (source uncited) I'd like to share with every person in the world:
Whatever your work is, keep doing it. Through the doubt, through the feelings of not-enough. Keep putting it out there. Your purpose, your art, will land in the heart it's meant to. You won't be for everyone, but you are for someone. And to that someone, what you give matters.And that changes everything.
