Today I read an interesting article about journaling. I’ve journaled off and on for many years and always found it very helpful. I loved how the author described his experience. I could really relate to his words. He said he used to only write when he felt he had something to say. Now he says he writes to “find out” what he has to say. That sums up precisely why I found journaling so useful to me in the past. I didn’t write to share anything. I wrote to find answers. I wrote when I was confused, hurt, angry or afraid; when I had a tough decision to make; when I didn’t know what to do.

 Gradually my journaling led me to a more public form of writing such as my memoir (in progress) and sharing insights with you through this blog. But I’ve discovered that, even when I think I am writing to or for someone else, it is still mostly for myself. For example, as I share the virtues of journaling with you now, I realize I’m building a case for why I need to get back to doing it again.

 Excuse me, but I have to go find out what I have to say. 🙂

 Let your spirit soar!
