Why I Keep a Journal

I’ve kept a journal off and on for years. More recently it was off. Now it’s back on. I try to write in it every day. Do I write my most secret, innermost thoughts? Not always. But I do skim the surface pretty good.

My journal is a form of therapy. I write about what is happening in my life – the good, the bad, and the ugly. I write about my questions, thoughts, and fears. It’s therapeutic. And it helps.

At this time in my life it seems to be important to write things down. For some reason, I have a lot of questions right now. I’m trying to figure some things out. I’ve trying to put some things in their place. Journaling is free. It’s the least expensive therapy out there!

Do you keep a journal? I’d like to hear about it.

I’ll talk to you soon.

  1. I’ve tried to keep a journal, but never got beyond the self-conscious “I’m writing to myself” stage. So now I just jot down a few notable happenings and leave it at that. I guess in many ways, my blog is my journal.
