why journal?

Why do I journal? I was intrigued to read what it said here: S.H.E.s Organized!: 21 Essays - Essay Eighteen

A Journal is a potent organizing tool, not just a gimmick to keep the house picked up. A Journal is a lamp to illumine the pathway of your life. In a Journal, you’ve kept a tangible record of where you were, what you were and who you were as you move through the stages of life. After a few months, you have some data for comparison. You can look back and see, "Yes, I do feel more down and gloomy when the weather’s bad!"

They may not have been specific in the type of journalling they were discussing, but it seemed to be a truth overall... "A lamp to illuminate the path of my life..." That’s just so profound, and I can see how true it is for me. Not only that, but I think the people on my sidebar are holding candles up to help me when my light is running low on oil.

I appreciate the ability to see where I’ve come from and get an idea of where I’m going through my journal. I wouldn’t trade this form of writing for anything in the world....


Yes! Another SHE! YEA!!!

That’s why I will definitely be tracking my SHE journal stuff over at The Resolution Project. I want to remember where I started at and be able to see the progress I have made. Plus knowing that other SHE’s will be watching me, I have to be good!
