Dear Diary - Is a diary the best friend you'll ever have?

Why keeping a diary is good for the soul
Ever had one of those days when you just wanted to crawl back under the covers and sleep it off? Ever had a problem you thought NO ONE would understand? Well, guess what? You have at least one friend in the world - your diary. Jotting down your feelings can be a powerful way to unleash your frustrations, your passions, your creativity, your grief, your anger, your joy. It's the one time you're completely honest, because you're talking to... yourself. There's no judgement. There's no blame. It's just you and your innermost thoughts.

When is a diary a negative thing?
Of course, you might think that dumping all your negative stuff in a journal is a bad thing, that it keeps you locked inside your misery. But it doesn't have to. Your diary can be a notebook of sorts, for collecting all the little bits and pieces you find which are of interest, for doodling, sketching and glueing pictures. If can be a place where you store great ideas, write down goals and dreams, spell out your passions. It's up to you. If your diary is a place you want to revisit, make it an uplifting place to be! Be kind to yourself. Search for inspirational quotes to perk you up when you're feeling blue.
