This time of year is hard for me. Even with the holidays on their way, its cold. I don’t go outside as much. Its friggin dark. I shut down a little more every day. I get S.A.D. Basically, I have the Blah-de-Blahs.
I write this creative journal to regress. And I think you should regress, too. I write to encourage you to get back into the mindset of your 5-year-old self for just a few moments. Because that is when most of us were the least inhibited by responsibility, by the pain of comparing ourselves to our cohorts, or by rules and social norms.
