Journal writing is important to learning. It provides us an avenue to examine our actions so we learn from our successes and failures. It helps us also pause and think before we proceed to our next actions.
You may keep your journal private. Your journal is a truthful and honest appraisal of your life. If you don’t like to share your journal to others, that’s okay. If you want to use a separate notebook, that is okay, too.
Find a quiet place. The writing of a journal begins in stillness. We close our eyes, breathe, and reach into ourselves.
Give yourself a bit of conversation practice, and write out a complete dialogue between yourself today and your younger self.
Talk about your answers to these two questions:
1. Who am I?
2. Why am I here?
