Sometimes we need to stop trying to make the world look beautiful and instead live with its brokenness for a little while.  We need to accept the flawed as part of life’s balance.  A memoir journal can take us beyond the “pretty” to the “real,” to the honest acknowledgement of the “messy” places of our lives.  Each time we allow ourselves to put our lives on paper-messes and all-our memoirs help us rebalance our spirit and earthiness.  Our joy and sadness.  Our sense of what is too much and what is not enough.  Our minds and hearts.
