Journal Entry

Arizona has had over 30 days consecutive of over 110-degree heat. When I have the option not to go outside I am definitely going to take it. Although when inside our unit is filled with chaos and negativity it feels like there is no escape, so what do I do? When there is no escape from the outside, we have to escape within ourselves. Today I put in my headphones, studied, prayed, and wrote, drowning out the world around me. Not even realizing how efficient I was, because my goal was to drown out my surroundings. Yours may not be homework, but it could be reading or meditating to find inner peace. No matter what, it will benefit you and make you grow stronger mentally and spiritually.
