Sharing Our Journal Stories: Lauren

I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up our Journal Stories series than by having a chat about journals with Lauren.  Lauren was at GDay Toronto when I introduced a group of 10-12 year-old girls to the practice of journaling. I’m just delighted that she has joined us today to share what she thinks of journaling. I hope that Lauren will inspire you to become a part of Give a Girl a Journal. She is exactly the reason I started it!

    Hey – Just saw this video. Wow, Lauren – you kind of nailed it for me! I’ve been struggling to get myself back to my journal and when you said “it is a place to have your true emotions” (or you said something like that :-) — I was like “YES! Duh! that is why I need to get back it!” –
    it is easy for me to ignore how I’m feeling, so yes, I need to use my journal for that !!!

    So thanks for doing this interview Lauren (and Jamie) – it was great for me to watch.


    Oh – PS – Lauren, I love your hat !!!

    Wow! Great interview. Lauren, I love what you said about keeping a record of things in your journal – whether it’s for five days or ten years – I think it’s so true! It’s easy to forget stuff and it’s such a good way to keep track of our lives. Thanks for the inspiration! I also love how calm and thoughtful you were in the interview. Very impressive.

    Very fun interview Jamie and Lauren! It made me feel happy about journaling and brought back memories of when I used to hide my journal under my mattress. Your hat is darling!
