When I was a little girl, I kept a diary... As I moved into middle school, I began keeping a journal because that sounded more mature than a diary. By the time I was in high school, I had a desktop computer in my room and began keeping a Word document journal that I saved on floppy discs (hello, raise your hand and show your age if you remember the floppy disc! Lol).
Once I finished college and began working full time, I never really could find the time to sit down and journal whether in a book or on the computer. Last year however, as I was digging through my childhood things in our basement, I found my diaries and journals and began the process of digitizing them. I felt certain that if those books were every destroyed somehow, those memories would be lost and I wanted to back them up somehow. So I sat down with each book and typed the words out onto the computer.
While working through that project, I felt an old passion stirring in me. A passion to document life's thoughts in written form again.
Since I already do Project Life and jot down memories of what we do, where we go and what daily life is like, I knew my journal endeavor would need to be more thought provoking and have deeper meaning. But I was at a loss on where to even begin. So I joined a Facebook group for list makers, with daily prompts for journaling and list making.
Then I began the tedious task of trying to decide when and how I was going to journal. When would I have the time? Should I hand-write it? Would I be able to stay current with my journaling?
After about a week of arguing with myself over handwritten or digital, I finally decided digital was best. In the next few weeks, I'll share why I made that decision but for now, here's a little peak of what I'll be doing....
