I've never been one that has been good at keeping journals. This time, I'm glad I've stuck with it. Although only I write an entry about once a week, I can definitely tell the progress I've made in a mere six months. Since starting my journal, I've become more positive in the face of adversity. My demeanor has also become more calm, and I seem to be more understanding with others. That's because I count my blessings, and journaling allows me to have insight on life, thus allowing me to see everything as a learning experience. In just six months, I already feel that my world has broadened. There are still some loose ends that have yet to be tied, but I plan on keeping this journal for much longer. I wonder how much progress I will have made by the next first of January.
I believe everyone can benefit from keeping this type of journal. If you'd like to get started on one of your own, check out [this post] where I outline how you can do it.
