My (Non) Journaling Story

Posted by Jo B Creative on Tue, Apr 10, 2018 @ 07:30 AM

Okay, I admit it - I've never journaled in my life and there's no guarantee I will.  But I'm often tempted to do so when I read about those who do, because I blog, and that's a form of self-expression similar to the journaling experience.

How Journaling Can Shape A Child's Life

Posted by Mary Jones on Fri, Apr 06, 2018 @ 07:40 AM

Journaling is such a subtle yet powerful tool to help one go in the track of self-realization.  It is one of the best mediums to have conversations with yourself.  This helps you to self-reflect and be more aware of your actions and goals.

It will be nineteen years on April 9 since I wrote my first three morning pages.  Over the days and months since, I have journaled my way to a better understanding of myself, my family, and every relationship in which I’ve ever been.  Having experienced the benefits of journaling in general and of Mari’s programs in particular, and being in a writing slump at the time, I accepted her promotional offer of the self-paced program, 14 Days of Journal Magic for Writers.

Life interrupted and I took twenty days rather than fourteen to complete it; but when I had to miss a day, I looked extra-forward to my next journaling session.  First thing in the morning I would print a copy of the day’s exercises and then sit with my mug of coffee, lap desk, spiral notebook and gel pen, and respond to the prompts.  As a result I wrote:

Journaling Power:  Pursue Your Passions On Purpose

Posted by Mari L. McCarthy on Tue, Mar 06, 2018 @ 07:32 AM

Journaling has an incredible ability to bring to the surface thoughts, memories and feelings that have been dormant – or even forgotten – a long time.  When you allow yourself to relax and write whatever is on your mind, you’re often surprised by what turns up on the page.

For me, journaling helped me rediscover and reclaim a great passion in my life: music.
