Why do we need to write down what we think… Our ideas, feelings, opinions, etc.
Do we need to?
Let’s think. How many thoughts we have a in day? Science says about 50000. How right it is, it is certainly a big number. So can you remember all those?
Let alone, do you remember what you did last year. Thanks to “Google photos” I get occasional reminders of what I did in last year’s. We have totally forgotten. So do we remember what we though of at that time.
Writing down let us remember those ideas. Yes. Some of them will be bad. Idiotic. You will feel embarrassed to think that you wrote them. However, on those writings you did you will find some gems. Some great ideas, opinions. Some of them may help you see the present in a new light. You will be able to go back to the time you wrote them and see the problems you have now. You might see those problems as good things. You might be able to see how you got past those issues you had. It will make you feel better.
Yes. You can overcome all the problems you have now. You had them before. But you overcame them. These will be the same.
Next year, read back what you wrote. You will feel embarrassed to admit that you worried about those.
So let’s do that shall we?
