Benefits of Journal Writing
While researching online I came across this blog entry by Steve Pavlina. In general the entry is about the three benefits Steve sees in journal writing, but do keep reading beyond that first section.
Steve goes on to share a portion of an old diary entry. He then spends time going through how much rereading this portion helped him where he is right now. He gets a chance to show which of his goals reached fruition, which didn't and how he felt about that, and to see where his dreams and ideas for that time of his life have played out. I liked the way he reveals the sense of stepping outside of himself to gain a different perspective on his life. I feel this is one of the greatest benefits of journal writing.
What are some of the benefits of journal writing in your life?
