The Importance of Journaling

January 19, 2019

The release of my journal, BE A BLESSING, comes out on April 2nd. It got me thinking of the importance of journaling has been in my life.

I was a young teen the day President Kennedy was assassinated.  His death rocked the entire world as well as my own.  I remember school being dismissed, but instead of heading home, my friends gathered in a circle.  Together we hugged and wept.  That night I poured out my grief in my diary.

 

I’ve kept a journal my entire life.  There are stacks of them tucked away from all the years.  It’s my story—my testament—written one page at a time.  The days on the pages are documented with world events in one entry, and what I cooked for dinner in the next.  Woven between the lines is my journey on this earth—the challenges, the joys, and the sorrows.  How grateful I am to have these journals, to look back and to revisit those memories.

 

If you haven’t thought about keeping a journal of your own, I would encourage you to consider it.

 

Here is a preview of two pages featured in my journal.
