The joys of journaling

In Uncategorized on February 23, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Each night before bed, I make time to record the day’s events and my thoughts on them in my journal. It is a practice that I got into back in grade school. Back then, we recorded our thoughts in whatever subject we happen to be studying at the time.

Journaling is a great way to chart your personal growth, and to reflect on your past memories.  Plus, if you a kid, you can pass it down to them, or if you get famous, you can publish them and give the world an insight into your mind.

Some say that keeping a journal is strictly for women, typically between childhood and adolescence, usually stopped because the girl becomes interested in the boy next door. That’s not entirely true. Great men if history have kept journals. Men such as General George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, Nepoleon, and President Ronald Reagan, just to name a few.

Some even consider online blogs to be a journal.

Getting started is easy. All you need is a quiet place in which to write, a journal (duh), a pen (preferably a fountain pen, but you can use a ballpoint one as well, just no pencils) and a comfortable place to sit. You can use an app or the Word app on your computer, just make sure that if you go that route, make sure that it is passcode protected.

If you’re unsure how to get started, your local library may have some books on the subject, or you can even use the internet to get tips.

However you choose to go, just enjoy the hobby in good health.

Feel free to leave your ideas on the comments page and share your thoughts with others. Thanks for reading.
