Journaling has always been a huge part of my life.
Iâ€™ve journaled since I was 15, and the day I started, I still remember like it was yesterday.
I was inspired by a friend, whoâ€™s motivation was to document, to remember the little things that he was doing every single day, so that he could look back and read them.
I started off the same, using it as a means of remembering the emotions that I felt at any given time, the small things that I did every day. I must say itâ€™s deeply satisfying to read through old journals and remember different little events that would have been forgotten.
More importantly, I am able to recall different people in my life, who have played some sort of role, and itâ€™s this memory of all these people that have shaped me to be the person that I am.
Journaling has also helped me in times where I had to process my thoughts and my feelings. Some days, I didnâ€™t know what to write. I felt lost, and I felt like I didnâ€™t know what was going through my head. But journaling helped me to put thoughts onto paper.
It has helped me to become a better communicator, to be someone who is able to take what I feel and think and put them into words. Thatâ€™s something that is invaluable to me.
Iâ€™ve decided to write a little e-book on journaling that I wanted to share with you in case you were interested. In no way am i an expert in journaling, I just wanted to share what my experience has been. (click here if you want to download it)
For those of you who are interested in starting, this may be a way to help you get started. â€‹
