About Writing To Grow

Hi, My name is Laurie.
I am starting this website/blog to share my experiences on how developing a regular habit of journaling has literally both changed and saved my life.
In the posts that will soon follow, you will get snapshots and glimpses of what I have learned, how I have grown and how you can do the things I have, to improve your day to day life. You can do this easily just by picking up a pen and jotting down what is on your mind.
I will be sharing actual entries from some of my old journal entries. These will be entries that, as I go back and research – surprise even myself at what a profound effect they had in making the instrumental positive improvements in my life.
I have journaled since I was seventeen. I am currently 61. However, it was only sporadically up until about 4 years ago. It was then I decided consciously to make journaling a consistent daily habit.
I can’t say it was perfect in the term “daily” but I do it at least 2 to 4 times a week. A much bigger improvement over the sometimes years in gaps between my journaling entries in the years prior to making this commitment to myself.
That is the first step. Making a commitment to yourself to actually do it.
