    My Soul Breaths

    I love notebooks and pens simply because the mere sight of these two items gives me visions of my unwritten novel which is my life. Everyday I write a new chapter and everyday my notebook and my pen are my inanimate witnesses to my joys, pains, triumphs and failures. They are the...

    My Journal Saved My Life

    The main reason I write in a daily journal is because once, several years ago, I had a very very difficult, stressful experience. I tried running away from home, but didn't get very far before I realized that my family would just come after me. Eventually, I just locked...

    Keeps Me Sane

     I started my first journal at age 11 and have kept one ever since. I do it mostly because I seek a sense of continuity in my life, and once in a while I need to see how far I've come. It also helps me to order my thoughts and keep my goals clear. It's been hard to journal...

    I was going through my turning point

    when I first wrote my online journal 2 years ago. It was my therapy and my release during a chaos. Lately, I've been writing more about people around me in my life. The good and the bad. The ugly and beauty. Things in life. Things I go through with people. I wrote exactly what...

    I read somewhere that writing down your

    thoughts can really help with depression. To be honest, my mind has been a lot clearer now that I have an outlet. I could never tell my friends how I feel sometimes, so writing a journal is helpful because of how personal and private it is. Hopefully I can keep this one going...

    Not Really.

    I love notebooks, ones with nice patterns and colours. I have many notebooks, all colours and different sizes. I write daily in my journal, things that happened that day, and all my feelings and emotions. Writing in a journal is something I enjoy, and I find it fun flipping...

    I have had a journal ever

    since I was thirteen years old and in middle school. When the days were awful, that journal was there to soak up all of my tears. As I get older, I find that my journal entries are much longer and filled with silly things such as what I ate for breakfast. To be completely...

    An Instrinsic Worth

    As each hour flies away, delves into the unknown and into the past as history, i am ever so inclined to document heroic ventures and personal epiphanys each day. my yellow and pink stamped, hardback journal carries all details, ironies and observations from the day therein, tying...

    The days when I don't feel needed, or even when something awesome happens. It's easy just to write in a journal knowing nothing your writing haas to be seen. Sometimes things you have such a hard time talking about will flow so easily on pen and paper. It can help me stay on the...

    Benefits of Keeping a Journal

    I have a Journal a home that I write in also it helps me to write in one. I think when you keep everything bottled up inside you it's not good for you and if you don't really have anyone you can talk to about things you might want to keep a Journal.

    I've kept a journal since I went off to

    university in 2007. I love to open up a clean new journal and write the first entry, and I enjoy going back to read finished journals. Keep them safe and easily accessibly in case of fire. I don't actually write every single day, usually every other day, but sometimes multiple...
