After the sudden death of her husband, Dave Goldberg, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg turned to her journal to help process her grief while also coming to terms with her new reality. "I had always wanted to journal," Sheryl says, noting that before the tragedy, she would often start journals only to abandon them days later.

"But when Dave died, I just journaled. I sat at my computer for hours and wrote and wrote and wrote," Sheryl says. "If I didn't write for two days, I felt like I was going to burst."

In this moment, Sheryl and Oprah connect over their shared love of keeping a journal, and discuss how writing down just three moments of joy every day can bring more happiness into your life.
