At the start of the year i bought two 5-year-journals.
One Line a Day
Q&A a Day
The blue diary has a section for you to write what you did on that day, or the highlight of your day. You then come back to the same page the following year on that date. Its mainly a keep sake. I felt really sentimental when i bought these as i've never had a diary before and i think it will be so interesting to look back on.
The brown diary asks you a different question every day (365 different questions). Again, you go to the same dated page the following year and answer the same question for that day. I will be able to see how my answers change and the difference on my outlook on life, or maybe no difference at all? We will see!..
I basically wanted to give a bit of an update on how I'm doing with them, although i never realised that i hadn't mentioned them before.
5 months in i still really enjoy sitting down at the end of the day and filling them both in. However its not always possible to fill them in. Some times I'm not at home, some times i finish work really late and some times i honestly just forget.
The longest i've left the diaries without filling them in is about 3 or 4 days at a time. This has only happened a couple of times, but its just not always possible to fill in.
In March i went to Australia for a couple of weeks and although i barely had room left in my suitcase i made these diaries a priority and managed to squeeze them in as i wanted to fill in my diaries about my time in Australia to the diaries in as much detail as possible. I was really please with myself that i remembered to fill them in once i was there.
If you like keeping diaries, or its not something youv'e done before but want to start i would definitely recommend these books. You don't have to start at the beginning of the year like i did, you can start in any month as it all links up in the end. I can't wait for the start of next year to fill in the diaries from the beginning again and read what i was up to the year before.
