Tie a string to the journal. Go for a walk. Drag it.

“When people don’t express themselves, they die one piece at a time. You’d be shocked at how many adults are really dead inside… walking through their days with no idea who they are, just waiting for a heart attack or cancer or a Mack truck to come along and finish the job. It’s the saddest thing I know.” Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

“Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet.” Roger Miller

Rub here with dirt.
“People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die.” Plato
“By contrast, the grime of her journey, the outré inappropriateness of the state of her, it felt like armor. I earned this dirt. Respect the dirt.” Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods and Monsters
“You may trod me in the very dirt, But still, like dust, I rise.” Maya Angelou
“I can see brown-tinged water rushing through one pipe, disappearing into the machine and emerging clean. Both of us watch the purification happen and I wonder if he is thinking what I am: that it would be nice if life worked this way, stripping the dirt from our lives and sending us out into the world clean. But some dirt is destined to linger.” Veronica Roth, Insurgent
