I love journaling. When I journal, I feel more observant, reflective, grateful, and focused. Yet with all the positive benefits, I’ve had a hard time getting into the consistent regular habit of journaling.
There will be seasons where I journal a lot, but then I’ll stop and go for long stretches without an entry. What makes this even more frustrating is that I have done a good job of forming other positive habits that I do daily. However, regular journaling remains elusive.
That said, I still work to create the habit. I haven’t totally thrown in the towel, because I think it is a habit worthy of pursuing. Just because that habit isn’t forming right away, doesn’t mean I should give up on it. It it’s important to me, which it is, I should continue to strive to form that habit.
Striving is progress, and that progress ceases the moment we stop striving.
