William Rutten


I am William Rutten, a catalyst for Growth, Self-Knowledge, and Authenticity. How is that for an introduction!?! That is what I came up with a few years ago when I did an exercise to uncover my Life Purpose. “I am a catalyst for Growth, Self-Awareness, and Authenticity.” And that is why I write! Well, that’s not entirely accurate. I write because I LOVE TO WRITE.....and because it is the best way I know to reach you right where you are.

I love to write about the entire range of the human experience. I am absolutely fascinated by the infinite ways that we dream, fear, love and embrace this beautiful journey that is LIFE.

I started as a journal writer. That was more than 20 years ago, and I have not been able to stop myself since. I believe I have filled about 55 journals so far, with no sign of stopping. Journaling is what makes me so clear about who I am, where I am going, and what matters most to me. Perhaps the most powerful gift those daily entries have given me, however, is Gratitude. They make crystal clear to me just how wildly blessed I have been and continue to be. I believe Gratitude is the mother of Happiness. My best anecdotal evidence for this is that, from the time I started writing in my journals every day, I have been on a 20-year run of unbounded Happiness. Of course, I would love to say that journaling is the direct cause of Happiness (and I hope that it is!). But the best I can claim is that my journaling habit brought with it an unbounded Gratitude. And I truly have been the happiest person I know for all of those 20 years. In any case, I think I will keep journaling until my ink runs dry!

Journal of YOU: Uncovering the Beauty That Is Your Truth is my first book. There are plans for so many more. I hope you will join me on the journey!
