I am doing some journal writing most days lately. It is a really insightful activity. I set myself the goal of writing around 500 words a day. Most days I don’t really feel like writing but do it anyway.
It brings me new awareness about my life. Just recently I have thought and written about how important friends are. Not just now, but in the future. My husband and I live a long way from my siblings and both parents have passed away thus making a network of friends even more important.
Also, I want my sons to enjoy their lives and families and not have to be concerned about me as I get older. I want to be part of their lives but also want my independence. Once again, hopefully friends will play an important role in my life.
I think Epicurus was on to something with this quote:
