Today, I want to talk about the power of journaling and how it can help you determine a overarching personal purpose that will help you provide you with a clear and focused path toward the things you want to do.
Journaling, especially when coupled with a purpose provides you with focus, clarity and gratitude about where you want to go and how much you've already done.
As a wife, mother, volunteer and author my mind sometimes feels like it's bursting at the seams. Using a journal has literally helped me maintain my focus and my sanity and been instrumental in my ability to write over 6 books, write a blog, be a parent, a wife and manage consulting clients.
There are many ways to keep ajournal. You can record the events of your days, plan a vacation, analyze yourdreams or use a bullet journal to organize your life. Journals can help you capture your thoughtsor plot out your career.
As well as decluttering your mind,keeping a journal can have some surprising benefits.
