Lots of people want to know what to write in a daily journal. Whilst there are no specific rules, it helps to have an idea of what you personally would like to achieve out of keeping a journal. Generally, a journal may be used to help with maintaining focus,enriching perspective and basically to encourage you to ponder deeply over the issues that affect you. We all make mental notes to devote some time to thinking about important issues and more often than not,this never happens.
Sometimes, we purposefully evade thinking because of the hurt and scars we carry from the memories of the past. Too many people overwork themselves or make it a point to use up all their energies just so that they can ‘drown out the noise’ created by the thoughts they need to be embracing instead of avoiding. Here are some thought-provoking questions for you to answer on a regular basis.
1. What is your life’s purpose?
2. Do you love what you do? Why?
3. Do you embrace change? Why?
4. Are you open to learning from others? Why?
5. What are the 10 blessings you’re most grateful for?
6. Where do you plan to be in 5 and/or 10 years? How do you plan to get there?
7. What are your main goals for this year? How close have you come to them since the beginning of the year?
