About William

I am William Rutten.  I wrote my first journal entry 24 years ago.  Three years later, at the wise old age of 24, the practice became a daily part of my world.  More than 50 volumes have been filled in the ensuing years. In 2017, I published my first book, Journal of YOU: Uncovering the Beauty That Is Your Truth.   When not writing, I am chasing my two amazing offspring around and soaking up every moment of their fast-flying lives.  It is my mission to help people know themselves better in the service of living happier, more fulfilled lives; I hope that my writing reflects that.  I am a happy man.

    Thanks for doing this, William. I am at a difficult time in my life and your blog helps me see a little bit clearer.

      I am glad I can help, Brent. That is probably the biggest thing journaling has brought me over the years–clarity–so I am glad I can pay it forward. Keep taking one day at a time. Remember: this is only a moment; it’s not forever. You will come out the other end a stronger and more compassionate person. Be well.
