A Penny for Your Thoughts
Everyone has those random thoughts you have throughout the day. Something might be stuck on your chest that you just can’t shake off. Writing helps me shake things off and maybe checking out these random thoughts might help you? Sometimes, we don’t realize that other people can think or feel the same way about a topic that we might think is off the wall.
Here’s a question for you. What’s on your bookshelf? I mean, besides the books? If you just have books, what kind are they? Or maybe you don’t even have books on your bookshelf?
