Don't let your lack of writing prowess prevent you from chronicling your life - photo by Melinda Fox
Why should you write a journal?

  • To improve self-esteem. Journaling helps you notice the value of your life.
  • To remember your life. So much is lost otherwise.
  • For future generations. They want to know you. They can learn from your experiences.
  • To discover. Sometimes you don't know your own thoughts and feelings until you get them out on paper.
  • To let go. Oftentimes thoughts plague you until you let them go in a journal.
