And so I write

I was recently asked “why do you journal Carolyn”?.

Today I am going to fill you in.

But before I start I would like to ask a favor of you.
Is there a topic about living a Simple Life you would like me to discuss? You know sometimes, because I live this way, I forget what life was like before making these changes. So if you have any questions, or even ideas for video topics please let me know. I am here to help you. My email address is below:)

So back to the topic on hand… Why do I journal?

Well there are three basic reasons:

  1. As  you know I read a lot. Many of my books have helped me, guided me on living my Simple Life. I take notes on what I read, I jot down concepts and ideas that I feel will improve my life.
  1. I journal in the morning so as I sit down, coffee in hand my journaling sets the pace for my day. It allows me to ease into my day. I especially like it when I wake in the morning and I can write, sip coffee and watch the sun rise. I confess though this does not happen often.
  1. The third reason I write in my journal is to reflect on all the good things in my life. I have found that sometimes I forget all the wonderful things that surround me and writing them down causes me to remember them… and somehow, and in someway when my mind recalls the good things more good comes my way.

This is it, the three reasons why I journal. I have found that if I skip these few moments of gathering my thoughts my day does not run as smoothly as I wish.

And so I write.
