Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that journaling is highly underrated. In this world where our lives progress at what seems to be a mile-a-minute rate, we are both overwhelmed and underwhelmed by the experiences that we have – overwhelmed because our experiences are often numerous and emotion-inducing, and underwhelmed because our lack of time to truly process the things that we experience leaves us aware of very little of what we actually experience.
One way that I combat that issue is by keeping a journal. Sometimes I write in it daily, other times I may go for days or even weeks between writing sessions. And though journaling tends to have a greater impact on us the more frequently and consistently that we do it, writing at least a portion of the time is certainly better than not writing at all.
Journaling is a simple and easy avenue that we can use to help us to become more aware of what is really happening in our lives and how we feel about it. And what’s even better is the fact that what we write about and how we write about it is entirely up to us. And perhaps the greatest benefit that journaling yields is that it gives us the opportunity to come face-to-face with our true selves and possibly learn some things about ourselves that will give us greater insight into who we are. Who knows, we might just be surprised at what we discover. #lovebythedrop
