Reread what you described. Then ask yourself why each listed item is important to you. Think about what you wanted and listed, and then think about why you wrote it down, then write that down. Remember that there is no right or wrong way of doing this journal exercise. Whatever is important to you is correct. Whatever you journaled is exactly right answer.
You can use a blank book, a notebook, or a computer for this journal.
What can happen is that you can focus and clarify what is important to you and why. You may want to journal about same topics from time to time, say every few years, using same blank book. As time passes you can reread what was important and what is important.
