    What is journaling?
    Journaling is a way of expressing your thoughts and ideas . It is a way of putting your mind in order . Journaling leads to a better thinking and improves your learning capability . There is a reason why when you take time to open your thoughts, plans and experiences, you remember them better while also feeling focused .

    I remember the first time I started journaling, I was going through a rough patch then , and I started writing down how I felt and how I can be better in a book , I didn’t even know I was journaling, (( don’t get me wrong it’s not a diary) , when I want to start something new , I write it down . When I have ideas I don’t want to forget , I write it down . I came across a YouTube video that was explaining what journalling was ,then I realized I was journaling. Everytime I journal and I pray afterwards, I feel better and at peace . In summary, journaling made my life better .
