The Benefits of Keeping a Journal

Saturday, February 06, 2016 13 Comments A + a -

I am thankful for this journal 
Where I do pour  my thoughts 
Whatever my mind comes across 
Like some decisions I'm at loss  

It's my stress management tool 
Where there's no strict rule 
This journal's like a jewel 
Feeding my hungry soul some fuel  




With a guide from the Bliss app 
That makes journaling a snap
 I can write some daily entries
 That is more than enough  

I can write about gratitude 
What I like about work 
The good things in my life 
That give this life worth  


I can write about the future
 What I'm looking forward to 
What can happen and how to fix it 
Instead of fretting about it  

I can think about great people 
Who gives me inspiration 
I can focus on things I favor 
And address God, our Savior

Nice poem, Carin and I'm downloading that app. How cool. I have kept a journal in the past, as a stress management tool, and it was from that that I embraced the positivity in life that gratitude brings. I like the idea of a writing prompt. It makes it easier and offers a vehicle for creativity. Have a good week.
