“Oh, so many things bubble up inside me… That’s why in the end I always come back to my diary. That is where I start and finish.”
Anne Frank – diarist
Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Rose again. Today we’re going to look at quotes about keeping a journal – as you know I’m a writer and I’ve always kept a diary ever since I could remember. Well more than one, it seems like I am always filling them up and finding a new cute one to start fresh.
I picked this quote because that’s how I feel too. I use my journal to help collect the bubbles. I mean growing up is hard to do – so many things seem to happen, between friends, and school and family. And then there are my emotions…It seems like I am having a new one every day. So when things get really bad, I just turn to my journal and write about it. Sometimes I write a few lines, and sometimes I write for pages – but whatever it is, afterwards, I always feel better. And if I had a problem, usually I have figure out a way to solve it – just by writing about.
So if you want to start your own journal – you don’t need anything fancy – a simple notebook, even a marble composition book will do – you can decorate it with stickers or some wrapping paper or magic markers. You can write in pen or paper, whatever. You can write every day or once a week, or only when you need to. You can keep your journal with you wherever you go, or you can keep it safe at home. You can re-read your entries or never look at them again. And remember they’re for your eyes only –so you can be honest, you can make spelling mistakes, you can even try writing in code. Just start writing and you’ll see how much better you feel.
