Call me a geek (I might be one), but I love this program I found last night. It allows you to do mind-mapping on the computer, and save your thoughts. If you've never done mind-mapping, it's not as weird as it sounds.

Basically, you have a starting point in the middle, and all of your thoughts go on "branches." The branches have branches, and those branches can have branches, and before you know it, you have a "map" of everything you're thinking about. It's amazing how you can problem solve when you list out all the issues. For me, at the very end of the branch, the answer usually comes. On Freemind you can also label different branches with things like, "don't forget" or "Ok/not ok," which makes me laugh.

Maybe better than journaling...


  1. Hi, Sara :) This is Josh Thomas, from long ago from a land called Tulsa. Think Marty Urwin Band. Yep. In any case, I found your blog from your myspace so I'm now subscribed via GoogleReader. Fun stuff!

    I just downloaded Freemind. Yeah, it looks involved but also a lot of fun. I'm going to be playing with this for quite a while. G'night!

  2. Hey Josh, Nice to hear from you. I still miss those days of eating pizza while sitting in very small chairs before a great worship set with you guys.

    Have fun with freemind. :)
