I have always been the type of girl to carry around a journal. I love to write, whether its about my day or just things I learn and pick up on from day to day. I have always carried them around and owned tons of them since I was a child. A pretty girly journal with a beautiful pen, would just make my day. It must have have tons of paper because I am annoyed with ones that don't. I always say one day I'm gonna make my own line of journals. (hopefully all you guys will be customers :). I have a huge journal that I have used for the past five years that is like a window into my life. I always wrote down important things and things that were of value that I wanted to remember. It's pretty much full now but I constantly look through it to remind me of things I may have forgotten. It holds all my goals and accomplishments throughout the past five years. Whenever I went through difficult times, it held my thoughts and prayers. I even wrote out prayers. Somedays I sit back and flip through the pages and read stories that remind me of that time in my life. I am left with many emotions based on the story. Often times I am left with a feeling of having been Blessed and how some of things I worried about then are no longer an issue. Amazingly my journal also teaches me things and reminds me of lessons learned but forgotten. I write to express myself and my journal is always a place to store these expressions. I am a just journal girl. As I said before my favorite journal is now full so my husband decided to get me a new one for Valentines Day, but he knows my journal standards are high so I'm gonna pick my own. I haven't found one yet. You may offer any suggestions you have. I often am inspired to write blog entries after reading my journal because it holds so many inspirational things. I flip through it like a book, its like reading through chapters of the past 5 years of my life. It brings a smile to my face to see the goals I have accomplished and set out to do the things I always said I wanted to do. To many of you, your blog is your journal. To me, my blog is a reflection of my journal. I am even going to get a blog journal (as if I need an excuse for a new one) That way I can write out many things to inculde in my blog. Journals make the perfect girt. Those of you who love to write try getting a journal and make sure its super cute! with a pen of course. I love to write more than I type so for those of you who are the same, give it a try.
Journal your life!
If you Journal, tell me how your journal inspires you
thanks to those of you who participated in my Valentines Day poll
