{January Topic: Journaling} Why I Journal

Hello lovely readers!

Some of my post popular posts on this blog are tech related so I’m going to try to focus on a topic a month taking a couple of posts to really delve into what I use in relation to that topic.

January’s topic is Journaling.

I’ve liked the idea of keeping a journal for as long as I can remember. Actually keeping one, however, has never been my strong suit. I have a bit of OCD when it comes to actually writing in brand new journals. They seem so perfect when they’re new, and once I’ve written in them, they feel ruined. In fact, if anyone ever went snooping through my closets, they’d find a whole box of unfinished journals.

Every once in a while, I go through my old journals and look at what was important to me over the years. Some of them give me quite a chuckle actually. There’s one from elementary school where I wrote about how a boy in my class told me his pant size, and I even found one where I wrote about how thankful I was to have my best friend (and she’s still my best friend to this day.) During most of my middle and high school years, journals were actually graded, and my teachers selected prompts each day. As much as I hated it then, those are some of my favorites to look back on.

Nowadays, I don’t journal about boys telling me their pant sizes, and I don’t journal because I have to. I journal because I want to learn more about myself and I want to become a better, happier person. Over the next month, I’ll be posting about what I journal about, what I use, and most importantly how I journal (including some tips and tricks along the way).

The next post will be about the tools I’ve tried and what I use today.Signature Update
