For months now, I’ve collected my thoughts in the form of entries on a Dropbox Paper file titled: rambles. every time I’ve felt a feeling, stumbled upon a quote I resonate with, or hummed along to a song that had me analyzing its lyrics - I sat down and wrote. it became a way for me to unwind, to recognize my feelings, and reflect on everything that was going on.
I used to scribble across pages and throw them away after ripping them into unintelligible pieces because I didn’t have the confidence to share what I wrote. When I was writing, I wasn’t mindful of grammar, using (or not using) particular words, or censoring my thoughts for the sake of others. With all that said, reading others’ substacks had me learning more about the benefits of sharing my experiences so welcome to my digital journal - rambles.
