A Better You plus Your Journal Working for You

A Better You plus Your Journal Working for You

Has your summer been good to you? Did you accomplish all you’d hoped?

The Journal Guides (Joe, Tonya, Jack and I) have had a whirlwind of a summer. And it just keeps coming.

If you could see us, you might think we were becoming one with the whirlwind. Well, perhaps it’s not quite to that extreme. It’s just that all of us have learned to walk rather fast.

Yet, we are all caught up in the excitement of living life, in the joy of helping people use their journals to improve their lives and in the hullabaloo of preparing some new and impelling goodies for you. (I will tell you more about that on another day.)

Even with all that going on I noticed there are a ton of good things happening in the Blogosphere. So I thought I’d share some that caught not only my eye but also my attention.

Ready? Check these out.

A Better You

Here are a couple of blogs about finding ways to be better at being you.

Don’t Compare Your Insides to Somebody Else’s Outsides (The Skool of Life)

7 Steps to Finding a Better, Third Option (by Jeremy Statton on Michael Hyatt)

Your Journal Working For You

Then there are a couple of posts about journaling and one that is about using pen and paper. I just love it when a self-proclaimed nerd suggests that the best solution for him is a pen and a few 3X5 cards or a pocket notebook.

How to Journal: 5 Tips for Capturing Your Best Ideas (by Cheryl Craigie on Write to Done)

Rethinking the Daily Journal (A Penchant for Paper)

Don’t swat a fly with a Buick (by David on Unclutterer)

There is a lot of great content on these posts. Some of them are guest posts and I identified that fact by including the authors name along with the name of the blog or website. If you think I’ve missed something good please let me know. Just like Momma taught, it is fun to share. :)


As a lover of words, pens, paper and the dictionary I'm a natural for journal writing. But, I wasn't always faithful to the task and had to learn the hard way. Some trial and error as well as input from my journal writing friends helped move me along. I have a burning desire to help people who want to use and get the most out of their journals and diaries. I see journal writing as a self improvement tool and a way to avoid costly mistakes, bad relationships and my stinky-self. Finding my kindly self is part of the journey which keeps me writing. I Journalate and so can you.
