Starting and Keeping Your Own Private Journal

By Christine Lacomis

The Journal is your private place to express all your inner thoughts and feelings. Begin to understand yourself through writing. You can then move closer to knowing who you are and who you want to be in life. Your feelings, your breakthroughs, your desires - record them all here. Discover yourself!

Getting Started

Go out and get yourself a nice Journal to write in.

Find a comfortable position in your chair.

Clear your mind. Relax.

And let your thoughts and emotions flow freely.

It is important that you do not censor yourself as you write.

Do not worry about grammar or punctuation errors.

Put every thought onto the page.

Be risky.

Be daring.

Be you.

What should I write about?

Writing helps clarify feelings. Choose a topic each day, and let your mind go.

Start writing words. And follow your feelings.

Did something happen to you today that made you upset or joyful?

What did you discover about yourself or the world?

Is there something from the past that you wish you could take back or do over to make it right?

What are your needs? What are your desires?

What are you most afraid of doing? What are you afraid of not doing?

What are you curious about? What issues are unresolved for you?

What do you love to do, experience, and feel?

What kinds of things in your life do you want to build on?

What are Your goals, successes and challenges.

How often should I write?

As often you like.

Your journal is here for you whenever you feel like writing or reflecting about anything.


How can a journal help me?


Writing consistently in a journal can give you a deeper connection with your own inner self.

Less stress.

Releasing all your inner thoughts and anxieties through writing can help release unwanted stress.

Understanding the past.

Journaling can bring up many issues in life that are still unresolved.

Writing about them helps take you to a place of forgiveness and healing.

Greater sense of peace.

Listening to your inner thoughts through writing will give you a greater sense of peace and a more positive outlook on your experiences in life.


Get to know what really brings you joy in life.
