The importance of keeping a journal
Updated: Jul 27, 2021
I feel as if even now I still underestimate the importance of journal entries. Let me make something clear, I have not been keeping a consistent journal for a long time, I wish I had with that being said. The reason why I think it is so valuable is because you can always look back and see how far you’ve come. I used to do entries when I was starting a new workout to say how I felt but honestly a majority of that was bogus because I was just writing how I needed to become better. A journal does not serve as a list of responsibilities but rather how you cope with those responsibilities. I feel better every time after I write. It organizes my thoughts. One day I want to write a book and to have all that information I need will only enhance my world view in my later years. Even when you have good days, still write in your notebook because when you have bad days you can look back and see what you were doing on your good days.
It can be as simple as going to your nearest Walgreens and buying a $2 composition notebook. It is not easy to enjoy the art of writing but sometimes it is necessary to enjoy the art of writing. You are in control of your life only if you are able to be in touch with your emotions
