Intro by Joanna Penn:
I’ve been writing journals since I was an angst-ridden 15-year-old, singing along to Madonna in my bedroom while raging at how hard life was.
Over the years, my journals became more than just teenage scribblings about boys and finding meaning.
They were my way to get through any difficult situation, including the devastating end to my first marriage, and a way to process my life when my health fell apart and I had to leave London in my 20s to go recover in the Australian outback.
I still journal – my thoughts, my goals, anything really. Writing continues to be my counsellor, as much as my passion and my business. So I’m thrilled to bring you this article today by Kristina Adams on how writing can help you too.
