“…(journaling) is like whispering to one’s self and listening at the same time…” – Mina Murray, Dracula

journal writing


I’m a huge fan of journal writing. My nanny (my father’s mother) gave me my first diary when I was 5 years old and I’ve been writing down thoughts and ideas ever since. When technology changed blogging became a natural transition, but I still can’t beat putting pen to paper.

The very act of writing means that when inspiration strikes it will find me working.

Journeys are hard and change is difficult, by this point you may be somewhere on the path feeling a little overwhelmed and lost. Journaling can provide an outlet for emotions, track your progress and a year from now be a testimony to how far you’ve come.

Journal Writing Tips

  • Start where you are. Fully express your current space in the world. Where do you live? work? play? Are you where you want to be in life?
  • Use your journal time to write down your daily successes, inspiring quotes or moments of gratitude.
  • Listen to yourself. Write down a question. Take a deep breath. And then give your intuition freedom to answer.

If you don’t want to write that’s okay too.

Sometimes I doodle. In early January I picked up a book on Zentangle… it’s like meditating and doodling at the same time.

Sometimes I create collages with images I pull from magazines. It’s like Pinterest – old school.

The possibilities and YOU are limitless!
