One reason why

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Quinn McDonald keeps journals. She wrote that “it doesn’t matter how you tackle your journaling. It always helps. It always heals. As long as you keep writing, your life will begin to make sense.

For a long time, before I started journaling, I would vent to my friends/family. A lot of times, they tried to help. Finally, after listening to  a John Gray’s “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” tape, he wisely concluded that he didn’t need to give me an answer or fix my problems. I was just being a woman; I had to vent!

Journaing has a way about it, doesn’t it? The writing forces you to focus in on the one thing that matters now, in this moment. you write about your frustrations, your anger, your disappointments and suddenly in the midst of it you get the answer you were seeking all along. Even if you don’t, the process is cathartic. You pick up your life again and move on. Thoughts are clearer now. Writing does help.
