Journaling will help you immensely

I started journaling when I was 18. I always found satisfaction in having my own journal to jot down my burst of thoughts. Although I never wrote enough to fill a page, I loved the idea of owning a journal filled with ideas, feelings, experiences, and relationships.

Start with something small

Make 10 bullets in your journal and set a goal to fill these out completely every single day. These bullets can be filled with what brings you the greatest joy within each day, what aspects of your life needs change, or how you can improve your personality. Simply, jot down any thoughts that come to mind to get started.

  1. Who brought me the greatest joy?
  2. Did I try being someone’s joy?
  3. What did I spend most of my time doing today?
  4. Were there any struggles today?
  5. Did I work on any self-improvement today?
  6. What am I grateful for?
  7. What kind of person do I want to become?
  8. Were my thoughts mostly positive or negative today?
  9. What will I work on tomorrow?

A simple routine is all it takes

Making self-reflection a routine in your life can help you find a greater sense of who you are and the person you want to portray around others.

I write for those who jump into life on the deep end. Sharing experiences and loving new insight.
