Writing a Journal

What is the point of writing a journal?

For many many years that was my default response whenever someone mentioned the word journal or diary. I saw it as a chore to be avoided at all cost and not to mention the “valuable” TV watching time I’d had to sacrifice to do it!!!

Now! I am not here to pass judgment on how much TV you watch or whether you subscribe to my old view on writing a journal. I want to give you an insight to how much the simple act of writing a journal has improved both my confidence and my outlook on life and so much more.

It did take some effort on my part, initially, and the first couple of entries felt forced and I didn’t know what to write.
I also noticed that I was writing as if someone was going to read it, which I didn’t like because it wasn’t the true me coming out.

It wasn’t until I changed the format that the whole experience became automatic and my mind took over control of the pen without having to force it.

I think the main block for me was that as soon as I wrote “Dear diary” my mind would draw a blank, so I decided that instead of doing it that way I would pretend that I was writing letters to a friend and that changed it instantly. It’s now 6 months later I am still doing it and cannot imagine my life without it. I spend some of my favourite time writing letters to my “Friend” and it has helped me bring tremendous clarity to my life and has helped me find my path in life. I sincerely hope it will do the same for you. Should you decide to give it a go!
