I’ve heard every excuse under the sun as to why people don’t journal and today I want to share them with you and hopefully inspire you to pick up your pen and write. Now let me pause and say that I don’t think that journaling is the solution to all of your problems.
My 8th-grade teacher, Mrs. Gilmore introduced me to the world of journaling when she gifted me my first journal for my birthday. ( I still have it to this day)
Being an only child I longed to have a sibling to play with and talk to, so naturally, I started writing immediately because now I had space to freely share my teenage adventures.
