Journaling

March 27, 2008

I really want to get in the habit of journaling more.  Not just in my scrapbooks, but in my everyday.  Now my blog serves as a type of journal but I don't put my deepest thoughts and dreams out here - at least most of the time?

I have two journals for my kids I started back in 1996.  In them I wrote only on certain days.  Like the day of their birthday, what they got, what the weather was like and what were their favorite things.  I did the same on Christmas or other dates that we're special to them or had an impact on our lives.

My sister in law would write letters to her kids and mail them to the house so they had the postmark on them. She never opened them, she would put them away for the kids at a later time.  I love this idea too!

I just need to find the time and a way to get this habit back in my daily routine.

More ideas for lists and things to journal about can be found here - a good way to get yourself into the journaling habit.

On another note: 

Thank you Jen for sending me this link about the book A thousand splendid suns which still remains my favorite book! 

and this link to Better world a place to purchase used books.  I already placed my first order!
