Your Life Not Worth Recording?

People comment sometimes that they don't keep a journal because their lives are boring, ordinary, and nothing record-worthy ever happens. Is that you? Do you ever look a pretty journal and worry about defacing it with your mundane life? 

Well, if you won't listen to me about worthiness of anyone's life for journaling, I do hope you will listen to Mark Twain.

There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility. Inside of the dullest exterior there is a drama, a comedy, and a tragedy. 
                         - Mark Twain

  1. Dolly,
    I love this! Every life is worth the page. This idea, which is true, is highly validating. It's funny how when someone else says the same thing we do, it can feel validating to us! I love it when there's a resonating with our point of view.

    I have chosen your post, Your Life Not Worth Recording?, for the #JournalChat Pick of the Day for 8/22/11 for all things journaling on Twitter. I will post a link on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, my blog and website Refresh with Dawn Herring, and Refresh Journal which you can sign up for here:
    You're welcome to join us for #JournalChat Live on Thursdays at 4 CST/2 PST; this week we'll be discussing how to use our journals to work through our disappointments and stay in the present.

    Thanks for pointing out the importance of putting our life on the page.

    Be refreshed,
    Dawn Herring
