Reading all our secret "diaries" brought back so many memories that I did not even remember. So I decided to start journaling again. It was nice to have handwritten memories of my childhood, and I think it will be fun to have some memories of my college life to look back on eventually and laugh with my friends.
Journaling helps improve your self-insight, writing habit, encourages a positive outlook and personal growth! The best idea of a journal is that it is a future gift for yourself! It also a great way to let stress out. Keeping a handwritten journal can help clear your mind. You do not even have to do an entry each day, just once a week, or even just once in a while. Writing something down on paper can make the memory last for a lifetime. Look through your childhood keepsakes and see what you come across, whether it is a journal, notes, or letters that you never sent. It will warm your heart, maybe even laugh!
Try it! Keep a journal, see if you like it! I am slowly falling in love with it, taking time to myself, it brings be a sense of calmness. Make it your own, add pictures, stickers,tickets, or anything that is special to you! Let your mind explore, doodle, reminisce, plan, daydream with words and ideas. Just keep it somewhere safe and I am sure one day when you read it again it will make you laugh and bring back memories like my childhood journal did for me.
