I have been journaling for the past thirty years. Wow, that’s a lot of writing!
Here’s why I continue:
*Journaling helps me put things in perspective. When I write, I gain clarity of thought.
*Journaling helps me jettison a lot of emotional baggage. I talk to God about what I write.
*Journaling gives me a record of where I’ve been. At the end of every year I read through the previous year’s journal. It’s amazing to watch how God has been at work in my life.
*Journaling leaves a record for my children. By God’s grace, my children will learn from, be encouraged by, and both laugh and cry at my life of adventure.
