My Relationship With Writing Like most people, writing has made an impact on my life. I didn’t notice it right away, but once I did it changed my life forever. I consider myself to be a fairly decent writer and I would say it was the only thing that kept me going. I love writing that involves thinking and real emotion. Writing journals and letters have helped me get through a lot in my life and that is really something I will never forget.
Writing became a way for me to express other feelings throughout my young years, but I always ended up writing in notebooks about how I was lonely and felt that I was the source of everything wrong in my life.

So, when I felt I had no one to talk to, I would write in my journal. Now that I am in drug treatment, I am spending more and more time journaling and writing letters to the people I have hurt over the years. I find that some things are best communicated in that way.

Why I keep a Spiritual Journal? I've kept a diary since I was young, so keeping a spiritual journal isn't new to me. The only difference between my diary when I was young and my spiritual journal today is the idea of writing not for myself alone but for God. My spiritual journal focuses more on my journey with God.

I have never been one to use a journal, nor have I ever been one to write down notes. The whole process of integrating journals into our class seemed a little off putting to me at first, however, after using it to annotate class discussions, articles, thoughts, and opinions, I quickly learned how helpful it was to me. The importance of taking notes was much greater than I ever imagined. Journaling has been a very helpful tool that has helped me grow in my learning experience, and I plan to use it more often.

Owing to this, I have given a piece of my soul in every piece I have written, mindful it might be my last. Even though writing is a passion for me, I have gained a hesitancy toward formal writing due to harsh and non-constructive critiques of highly personalized pieces, the craftsmanship of which were intended to enchant.

Today, I have mastered the art of writing. Through writing diary, I have developed freedom of expression, which might not have been possible otherwise. I secure my diary in a hidden place as I prefer not sharing my personal information with others, be it my family. I have developed the thought of writing diary after coming across the book titled ‘Diary of Anne Frank’. After reading the book, I realized that the power of written words helps in expressing feelings more clearly rather than spoken words. I have also encouraged several friends to take up the hobby of writing diary. I am happy that many of them have also made writing diary as their favorite
For my 100th post I decided to start my new series of Notebook Addiction. In this series I will focus on a journal or even company that I've bought a couple of journals from. An example would be Peter Pauper Press since I have such an abundant amount. Additionally
