It absolutely amazes me all the things I have done in my 32 years of life. There were moments of happiness, sadness, laughter, achievement and failure. There are moments I can remember as if they happened yesterday and then there are times where other people talk about things I have done and I have no memory of them.
For the last year I have been journaling everyday just some simple thoughts. Last Christmas I received a 5 year journal. Each day they ask you a simple question and all you have to do is write a short answer. The questions vary from being serious to being totally random.
I’m excited that I’ll soon be starting my second year and I can start reflecting on last years answers. I’m sure some I’ll remember instantly and know why I wrote that answer but I’m also sure there will be days when I look and wonder what was happening that day or just laugh at the craziness of my answer.
My only downfall to this journal is reminding myself to answer each day. I know there are some days where my answer is “Forgot to answer.” Life sometimes gets in the way but at least I can look at those days and remind myself that life happens.
I recently discovered two more journals from the same company that I’d love to try out. One is the 5 Year Journal for Moms. I feel thought that may have to wait until I am done the one I already have since they may be too similar. The other I’m hoping to get a copy of is a 3 Year Journal For Kids. I’d love for my kids to join in the fun and then be able to give it back to them when they are older so they look back and see what they remember or laugh about answers they shared.
Tell me do you have a special book that you journal in or write down memories? Share with me, I’d love to hear what you use!
