Journaling is a great way to express emotions, brainstorm, record memories, doodle, problem solve and getting your thoughts down on  paper.

I keep a couple of different kinds of journals.

One is where I only write when something big is happening, something I am having strong emotions about and need to express privately. This journal is a hard covered,  more expensive book. Something that will keep over time.

The second is for ideas, thoughts, affirmations and any other miscellaneous items. This journal is of any notebook variety, not something I’d be upset not to have around in twenty years.

What type of journaling do you do? Do you have a preference on what kind journal you use?

Journals are a winning gift idea every time. It also makes a great craft idea, see some of my crafted journals.

    I used to keep a journal, but now blogging has taken its place. I don’t have any stuff left to write about after blogging!

    Great prompts! I’m always looking for new things to blog about. My blog is like an online journal, so I don’t usually keep a diary or journal. :-) (dropping by from SITS FB group)
