This is an excerpt from my interview with Wendy over at Mother Rising. I am reprinting it here because it was such a great question and I’d like to pose the question to you as well.
Why do you journal/blog?
I journal to remind myself of the good stuff in my life. I journal to count my blessings, to celebrate what’s working, to remember where the color is, where the joy is, who I love, what I’m learning. I journal to work out the tough stuff, to feel less alone and exorcise the demons. I journal to make an offering of my life. I journal so that someone else might feel less alone or be inspired or feel connected.
I journal to feel connected.
I journal to share myself and my life. I journal because I want to create a habit of celebrating. I journal to remind myself and others that the world is full of beauty, often tucked away in the most ordinary and unlikely places. I journal to remind myself that there is beauty everywhere.
I journal because it helps me to practice seeing.
