For as long as I can remember I have journaled.
I have a wooden trunk in storage full of diaries and journals.
Some of it I can barely stand to read, it's so silly and trivial.
I wish I could go back and have a talk with my pre-teen and teenage self...
but that's a story for another time.
Why should you keep a journal?
It becomes a keepsake as you age.
It reduces stress.
Great way to bust writer's block
It's a good way to make time for yourself.
It helps keep you organized.
It's a great place to set goals.
It's a safe place to get out frustrations or bookmark a special moment.
My favorite type of journal?
Colorful, exotic covers with blank pages and NO lines.
Throughout the ages, others have kept diaries and journals.
Here are some of the famous characters who've also chronicled their thoughts and feelings and daily events...
