Default Re: Journalling

I wanted to add this tip...I "perk up" my journals by pasting in photos and cut-outs. I use stickers. Sometimes I draw in them. I did this in order to be a little more creative...and when I go back to old journals it is fun to see art work and poetry etc. I also record quotes that I like from other sources, things to help me in my journey...

That's where I'm at I think. I don't want a diary. I want to record my feelings & thought processes which I can never recall after the event in the hope, as you have, to gain some kind of insight & understanding of myself. How you describe your "workbooks" makes perfect sense to me.

And if we invent some words along the way all the better!

I love the idea of adding pictures & quotes. When I'm low I quite often spend a ridiculous amount of time searching quotes on the Internet. There is often a picture or a quote that captures what I'm trying to verbalise and can't. That's a great idea & will really help with getting a true picture of that day or time.

From one journaler to another - thank you

That's the spirit! Now you have a place to put all your quotes! It sounds like you are doing great...and I think you will find it very interesting in the future to go back and read the thoughts of that person you once were. Also, being a "journaler" improves writing and communication skills! Using journals as workbooks is a win-win situation!
