Did you know that successful people throughout history have all kept journals? 

Oscar Wilde, 19th century playwright, said: “I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read on the train.” (Source)

Do you keep a journal? Why?

I don't keep a journal but sometimes I wish I did. My blog acts as a journal in a way as it's a collection of my thoughts and experiences at the time of writing but I want to start logging the day to day things, such as cute things my children say and key events in our lives. Right, I'm off to buy a journal :-)

I haven't kept a journal since I was a kid, but it probably would be nice to have one.

I used to keep a journal. Writing all of my deepest most intimate thoughts and feeling.

That was when I was married. During a very contentious, difficult divorce trial, my exhusband brought copies of my journals. There was nothing in them that affected the issues of our divorce. The divorced trial was about financial issues. It was an attempt to hurt and humiliate me.

I was questioned on the stand for day, reviewing my most intimate thoughts and deepest feeling that no one else ever should have seen. It was incredibly painful.

I never journaled again after that. It's been 7 years and I only recently began writing again. But I doubt I'll ever be able to bare my soul on the page again.

I have two journals.  One journal is a gratitude journal where I write down 5 things I'm grateful for each day.  The other journal I keep is for capturing my everyday life experiences, things I want to remember, mistakes I've made and want to learn from and anything else I feel like writing down.
