"We don’t want to get caught up in reliving time that’s already been spent - to the detriment of what’s in front of us NOW. "
Should you read back over your journal entries once you've written them?
This is an important question and one I get asked a LOT. It's also a question that needs an answer, which is why I created this episode.
Tune in now and discover:
"There’s something cathartic and releasing about expressing and purging your raw emotions into your journal. Articulating how you feel creates an outlet for those challenging emotions to move through you."
In summary, deciding whether or not to read back over your journal depends on what you have to gain from a revisit.
As you make this decision, it's important to strike the right balance between reviewing to reflect and learn without getting lost in the past.
How often do you read back through your journal? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this important question.
"There are times when revisiting your journal is definitely a valuable and worthwhile experience."
