Journal Quotes

Are you looking for a wonderful collection of Journal Quotes that will inspire you to put your thoughts, ideas and plans down on paper?

I have been using a Daily Journal for over 20 years. During this time, I have noticed a real difference to almost every area of my life because of this powerful daily habit.

I find using using a journal a great way of staying on track with my goals because I have become more accountable to one person..ME!

People use journals for different reasons, some use them as a brain dump, a place that they can get all of the noise going on in their head and put it down on paper. Other people, like myself use a Daily Journal to keep on track with their daily tasks and to give themselves a powerful confidence boost.

I find the daily habit of journalling a very positive, motivating and uplifting habit. I highly recommend that you add this to your morning routine.

I really hope that you will enjoy reading the following Journaling quotes and they inspire you to start this powerful habit yourself.

My daily journaling habit has changed over the years, I now keep it very simple by writing down 3 exciting goals that I have. This gets me feeling positive and excited for the day ahead.

I then write down 3 small action steps that I will take today that will move me closer to achieving my goals. I then write down 3 affirmations to put myself in a positive mindset and finally, I write down 5 or 6 things that I am grateful for.

Whether you choose to journal daily, weekly, or simply whenever inspiration strikes you, remember that your thoughts and words have the potential to positively impact your life. So grab a journal, find a comfortable place, and begin this beautiful voyage of self-discovery. As American writer Anaïs Nin once said, “We write to taste life twice.” Happy journaling!
