Five Ways to Flourish in Journaling Good journaling is not just an exercise in introspection, but a pathway for joy — and a powerful tool in the hands of love. Perhaps you’re sold on the potential spiritual value of the discipline of journaling, but you just don’t know how to get going, or keep going. Make It Yours It can be helpful to hear that there’s essentially no wrong way to go about it, and no real rules for it, but that it’s something you can really make your own.
