Journaling: Just Thoughts on Paper?

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has many definitions for the word journal. My favorite is:  “a record of experiences, ideas, or reflections kept regularly for private use.”

I feel that this definition is inaccurate. How many journals have we seen come to life in publication? Anne Frank’s diary may be the most famous.  What others can you think of?

I’ve been thinking about this lately as Jen and myself have been entrusted with the journal of a good friend of ours. We’ve read it and obtained a new understanding of the writer, who may I say is an excellent writer.

It may even serve as notes for me for a special project that I may be undertaking in the near future. I’m sure this task will be something I share with you in the near future.

I’m not quiet sure why we have been entrusted to hold onto something so dear and personal, but it is really an honor to be in possession of it.

Do you journal? If you do, do you do it the old-fashioned pen and paper way or digitally? Would you share you inner thoughts and feelings with others? Do you now? Let me know!
