I save them in a box so I can read back through them at a later time. When I read back through them I see how much I’ve changed for the better and grown, which boosts my confidence in myself. Plus I am reminded of some wonderful things that lift my spirit. Also I find information in my old journals that is helpful for understanding and journeying through my current life situations. I will also use the life lessons I learned from my old journal writings to benefit others in their life lessons journeys. So I save them so I can learn and grow from them and use them to help others.
