Why journal?

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

For years I have kept a journal and they have been my best friends in moments I have felt all alone.  At times I kept one to complain and voice my grievances and one to be grateful and ramble in.  Each one has served its purpose in my life.  Now I do not have a journal for grievances but I think life was harder back then.  I heard someone say once to write for 20 minutes each day and spend 10 minutes writing your complaints and grievances and then spend 10 minutes writing your blessings.  Then see how long you could continue.  Not too long after I was spending the 20 minutes on my blessings.  I just felt better.  I am not saying I did not go back to old Martha (that is what I called my journal) but I spend less time being down and more time looking for the good in my life.

Anyway, I digress, that happens a lot with me.

I start each day in my journals.  It is so wonderful to sit and gather my thoughts and think about my day in a way that inspires me and brings joy to my life.  If you have not started one, go out and find you a fun journal, and then a nice comforting pen and start your day organizing and sorting your thoughts.  I know you will not regret it.
