I can’t express enough how much I’ve enjoyed journaling throughout the years. I started when I was young, maybe 4th grade and I still have my journals from then. Writing down my thoughts and feelings is a helpful way for me to hash through what I’m going to say before I say it, this is a big deal for me because I have a remarkable gift/curse of being too honest or putting my foot in my mouth. All things I’m working on at the moment.
My love for journaling is most likely why I love to blog. The blog is an electronic journal of my blended life. I can look back and have a visual of what has happened in my life. The good and the bad.
I found this article on the benefits of journaling, and I believe all to be true.
We also have a camping journal that we keep in our trailer similar to the one below. I journal all our camping trips, where we stay, pictures, who we went with and if we think we would want to go back. FUN-FUN!!
Remember: It’s beneficial for the kiddos as well. If you have a kid struggling or a super quiet kid, buy them a cool journal and encourage them to write their thoughts and feelings down.
