A Journal is…


Our Journaling as a Lifestyle continues…and today I ask you to consider what your Journal is to you an d for you. How much more could your journal be to you? What is it you need now? What is calling you? Listen to the whispers…and journal them!


A Journal is…

A place to just “be”
A place for me
A confessional, prayer closet, place of worship
A listening friend, and confidante
A therapist
A gymnasium for thoughts
A traveling companion
A life partner
An idea breeder
A springboard for plans and adventures
A cheeky sidekick
A reveal-er of truths
A keeper of secrets
A silent receptacle
A holder of hopes
A dream recorder
A roving reporter
A quiet comrade
A “not nosy” note taker
A safe storehouse for feelings
A refuge from noise
A cherished teacher
An enlightening guru
A possibility presenter
A worthwhile spiritual advisor
A personal guide
A qualified coach
A faithful hearer
A Spa for the soul
A play date for the spirit
A goal keeper’s treasure chest
Full of inspirational input
A miraculous map for living
The most effective life tool
A portal of potential
A solution creator for every problem
An answer to boredom

What is a journal to you?

    1. Oh, Mel! So nice to see you here, my friend. I agree, I am grateful to have a place to put these and in time I have found that some of those dreams are allowed to come off the page and into life!


  1. Love your phrasing of “a place to be”, “a spa for the soul”, and “playdAte for the spirit”…agreed !! A companion, confidante, and clarifying chronicler 🙂
