To Thine Own Self Be True



One of my habits is journaling often. One of my favorite quotes is by Shakespeare which says, “To thine own self be true”.

It is so important to be honest with yourself (which can sometimes be tough to do) and I believe that journaling helps me to do that. Expressing myself on paper allows me to focus my thoughts and reflect on a number of topics. I am often surprised by how much clearer a complex issue becomes with just this simple act.

Another thing that I love about journaling is that it’s a way to document my personal journey. When I re-read old journal entries, it is very heartwarming to see my growth in so many different areas.

I think that blogging is also a journal of sorts. As in my personal journey, this blog is a way to document my voyage as an amateur photographer. I hope to look back and see progression as I bump along the walls learning this art.

I would love to hear if blogging is a form of journaling for you and also why you started your blog.

  1. That’s a beautiful journal – who wouldn’t want to write in that! I have to admit that I’ve thought about journaling probably hundreds of times but don’t have the guts – because the other side of journaling is that once you’ve written it down, it seems to be more real than when it’s just a thought racing around in your head. You’ll have to be able to live with that…

    1. Hi Kiki!

      You make an interesting point about journaling. I think it takes a bit of courage to examine our true feelings honestly. I think you are right, once your thoughts are written (or exposed), there is more of a push to confront them and it can be a tough thing to do.

I'd Love To Hear From You!!
