Write Your Thoughts

Journaling to Remember

It is clear that there are many reasons to journal but let’s talk about a practical one. Journaling can help us to remember. It may be something we want to do; somewhere we want to be; or a commitment that we have made. Thoughts can sometimes be very illusive. There are many times when we think of something, for me it’s usually the perfect line for either poetry or prose, but when the time comes for us to use this particular thought, it’s gone.

The reason for this loss is it was not caught on paper. So for this reason we may not keep a promise, we may forget to do something important or we may lose the perfect line. This is the time when we may have this sinking feeling that we disappointed someone, made a poor impression or that a great idea is lost and gone forever.

Failure to record may mean failure to remember. Sometimes the very act of writing things down will help to stamp it in our minds. Hence writing becomes the memory’s stamp. But short of this we can always reread what we have written.

Remember there is nothing like words in black and white to help you see where you are and where you are going.
