The Journal Journey is not always dreary, heavy or tumultuous. Sometimes, to be sure, the path is a steep uphill climb; sometimes it seems you’re hiking the Grand Canyon. But remember that your journal will log your joy just as faithfully as your pain, your laughter with as much expression as your tears, your triumphs in as much detail as your tragedies. Notice the parts of the journal journey that are playful, joyful and exuberant, and write about them, too. Remember that rainbows are real, even if the pot of gold isn’t.”
