Wherever Journaling Leads…Go There


It has forever been thus: So long as men write what they think, then all of the other freedoms – all of them – may remain intact. And it is then that writing becomes a weapon of truth, an article of faith, an act of courage.”
― Rod Serling


This morning I saw something in my Instagram feed that prompted me to want to share a few fresh from my mouth words in response…which can be dangerous, but I went ahead anyway!

Today as you consider your journaling self, I want you to take a walk, Rod Serling style, into places you don’t normally encounter with your journaling.

I think so often, we all have areas we avoid…and that is OK. But, it’s also good to consider how we approach our journal, and how we might shake up our own routines.  Our natural tendency  so  often leads us to a comfortable pace and place, to well-traveled paths which feel safe. BUT, everyone knows the sweetest fruit is found in the hardest to reach places. Well, at least for the sake of my argument we are sticking with that statement. It sounds good, right?

So here I am in my very informal manner, sharing a few thought for your journaling journey. OH, one disclaimer, I do sometimes write about some of the things I do in my journal…or document special occasions and events but it is not  my main focus of journaling. My journaling is focused on my inner life, primarily.


Let me know if you have any questions, thoughts or comments? So where does your journaling want to take you? Are you willing to venture beyond your comfortable places and paths? Take a walk with Mr. Serling…


“You see. No shock. No engulfment. No tearing asunder. What you feared would come like an explosion is like a whisper. What you thought was the end is the beginning.”
