Life happens so fast. It doesn’t seem like it when we are in the thick of it like when we’re worried, frustrated, texting or in LOVE! It’s great to make a journal to remember all the exciting and sometimes scary times in our lives that we experience day to day.
In addition, to my dad passing. I just added my own addition, literally. I had a BAY-BAY! He’s great and his name is MAGNUS.

I started a journal for him about things he does each day like fart like a grown man! I also take pictures of the things he likes to look at so when he gets older he can check out what he was doing back then.

You may think that you don’t have time to journal but you can keep it as simple as possible. For example, you can one photo each day and put them in a book without words as a visual log of your life.
Blogging is great or do it the old fashion way and use a diary or journal. I dig journals that you make yourself with whatever markers, pencils, photos, artifacts find. Don’t stress, you don’t have to be a Pulitzer prize winner to write when you journal. But if you write it now, years from now it WILL be the best story you’ve ever written or read!
What would be the first thing you would journal about?
