    Just open a document on your computer and write. And punctuation also helps quite a bit for the sake of reader comprehension.

    What ever you do be truthfully and honest and up to date.

    Hi! I am new here and this caught up my eye. I have also been researching on starting a journal and type of content to put in there. I feel that a journal is a very intimate and personal thing, so you should always be true to yourself.
    If you will focus on creating a legacy you might end up putting in things that are not you.
    I see a journal as more than a legacy, it is a collection of your thoughts so that you do not keep on repeating similar ideas in your head. It will give you more clarity and show what kind of person you are, but you have to be true to yourself.

    Anyway, you can try adding some gratitude. Take a few minutes to write about what you are grateful about in this life, this can be a small thing too. Like wind on your face, or a bird chirping in the garden. Some bigger things like family or something good that happened to you today. The idea is to always write about something you celebrate and enjoy in this life, and then continuing with the problems and issues you are facing.

    I agree with you to just write what comes to the mind. Sometimes I feel consciously thinking about a small good thing in the whole day changes our attitude and mood. I tend to write only about the bad things and difficult situations. So I make it a habit writing good things and then write whatever comes to my mind.
