i'm realizing how much clarity comes from sitting down and journaling. i forget this often though, because the biggest benefits actually come from really focused & good journaling over a period of time.
figuring out what you think actually requires a lot of focus, and a lot of thought and thinking. like, you're not going to figure shit out over one journaling session for thirty minutes before bed. you'll figure shit out and develop clarity if you journal regularly for a month, on the important questions, questioning your assumptions, and directing your thinking.
i want to bring back journaling. for me, I journaled every day for most of a year on 750words.com in college. so that's what I'm going to bring back.
i also want to think about templates/prompts to use for journaling so my journaling is directed/more useful, since it can easily not be that way for me.
