Even though I knew how much journaling helped me make decisions, solve problems and reflect on the person I was becoming, I let life—work, kids, other responsibilities—take over and didn’t journal during most of my twenties. During those years, I developed endometriosis, tendinitis, Crohn’s disease, osteoarthritis and other autoimmune illnesses.
