This mind map was an attempt at a journaling technique called Mind Mapping or Clustering. It is also known as Visual Free-Association. Try doing one for yourself. You can use the same topic or any other topic. If it works, even try uploading it in a comment. Happy free-associating!
p.s. Sorry it appears blurry. Not sure why that is... I hope you can actually read the words. Click on the picture and you can see it in a bigger version. It looks clearer that way.
