What is an online Journal? (Private)
An online journal is a private platform through which you can record your day-to-day work, or comments on the current events, without allowing it to read by others.
I won’t go wrong if I say you can find your life purpose by keeping a journal. Yes, that’s true. Sometimes it becomes hard for us to figure out what exactly we want. And without knowing your life’s purpose, it would be tasteless to live the rest of our life.
The base reason behind not being motivated in your work is that one reason which I call “copying the crowd.”
If you work for something that you don’t love, or you don’t feel connected with then, there would be no way to get motivated. One day or another you will lose your passion. Money cannot bring you happiness all the time.
But there is a way that works properly if you find your purpose in life. And I know that journaling can surely do that for you.
Here is how journaling can help you to find your life purpose
1. Being Honest: You can tell a hundred lies to others, you can make out fools too, but the reality is you cannot make a fool out of yourself if you create a positive journal. The title itself will not allow you to do so. Being positive means being honest with yourself, and being honest means to find the truth of your life.
2. Writing What Matters: Normally when we write a letter or a post to someone, we care about what h/she will like. We override our feelings, by doing a positive journal it will not work. You will start writing what matters to you. No care about the opinion of others, it’s only between you and your journal.
3. The truth of the Story: Everyday good things happen to us, but typically we only focus on the bad side of the story, even in the newspapers too. But when you follow a positive journal you always try to find out the positive aspect in your everyday action. That helps you to see the real happiness in your work, and then you started to recognize what you love.
4. Being Smart: Do you know regular journaling can also help you to increase your memory power. You will become smarter. You will learn new topics every day. And at the end of the day, you will increase your knowledge about the subject you’re writing all the day.
5. Ups and Downs: Life is full of ups and downs, no matter how much you give effort, but still there would be a day which will not meet your projection. Journaling will help you to keep motivated in those bad times.
6. Thought Clarification: Journal writing will also help you to make your thoughts. It will work best for that time when you will lose control over your emotions.
Here are some of the popular journaling platforms on the web. (As per as my best knowledge) If you know another one, please let me know.
