It's really interesting to see what comes out when you sit down to journal. Sometimes it's stupid stuff, like a to do list of sorts. Other times, it's grievances with loved ones that you are trying to resolve. I think it seems most poignant when you look back at a journal entry ~ that you may have written a month ago or a year ago and you see yourself from a whole different perspective. Maybe you see how you worked through that problem. Or maybe you realize what you have accomplished. But, my favorite is when I realize just how much I have grown!
