As I Was Saying . . .

Mobile phone & pen on keyboardI’m a big fan of journaling. It’s a way of getting that jumble in my head onto paper where sometimes I can make sense of it.

Although I’m an inconsistent journaler, one constant has been the inspiration journal I started in 1997. It’s the one where I write down sayings, poems, song lyrics, Bible verses, and passages from books I read. Obviously, I don’t do that consistently, either. The book I started in 1997 is only half full.

It’s fun to go back and read some of them:

“We probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of us if we could know how seldom they do.” – Olin Miller

“Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.” – Unknown

“Never do anything you wouldn’t be willing to explain on television.” – Arjay Miller

“Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.” – Benjamin Franklin

This one is great, considering the Powerball jackpot sits at over a billion dollars:

“I’ve never been a millionaire but I just know I’d be darling at it.” – Dorothy Parker

I haven’t put entry dates by the sayings. Maybe I should so I can think about where I was when I recorded the passage. Do I really want to go back there?
