Journaling Your Way to a Better Life by Jes

When I was younger I faithfully kept a diary from the age of about 8 to probably 17. I would use it to express my feelings, events of my school day, goals, details on my crushes etc., typical adolescent girl stuff.  Eventually, the entries became less frequent and then life happened. I started college, became a mother, and a full-time employee juggling a hectic life. I just didn’t have the time to journal anymore, so I thought! In 2015, I suffered a devastating loss when my best friend was murdered. My feelings were all over the place, I didn’t really want to talk to anyone, but I knew I had so many thoughts and emotions that I needed to get out. So I bought a journal, and I just started writing. When I began, my heart was the heaviest it’s ever been in my life. With each page, I literally felt lighter!  I was finally able to get it all out.  I used my pen to bleed my emotions all over the paper. I saw an overall improvement in my life and my moods just from taking a few moments to journal.

Here is what I noticed:

Self- Insight

I learned who I am, not who I thought I was or who I once was but who I am now, at this moment. I learned what motivated me, what caused me to succeed and what caused me to fail. I had no choice but to be 100 % honest with myself!

Disciplined Writing Habit

I had wanted to start blogging but I was so out of touch with writing daily, due to journaling I have been able to get back into the habit of disciplined writing. Honestly, a lot of the topics I write about our thoughts straight from my journal.

Manifestation

Journaling definitely helped me on my journey to manifest my goals into reality. As you write and then read the goals you write, they have no choice but to become imprinted into your subconscious mind.

  • Emotional/mood stability
  • Detaching a letting go of the past
  • Empowerment
  • Release of emotional baggage/ improved mood because I was no longer angry and holding in the things that were hurting or upsetting me

If done effectively, journaling can help change your life for the better. You control everything with your pen, just let the thoughts flow. You can design the life you want to live, the person you want to become, become more productive and have a one on one therapy session/ pep talk with yourself every day!
