a place to show up
One of the best gifts of a journal is that it gives you a place to show up.
As you write, you may discover where you actually are.
Do you journal? Is it online or on paper? Or both?
Do you journal daily or is it sporadic?
What helps you to maintain the discipline of journaling?
What are the greatest hinderances to journaling?
Do you encourage your children to journal as well?
How has journaling shaped your life - as a person, a wife, a mother, a friend?
If you don’t journal, but would like to, what is holding you back?
