I've never been very good at keeping a journal. When I was growing up, I'd get the fantastic idea to start a journal, and then I'd journal for two or three days in a row. Several months later, I'd come back to my journal, rip the pages out that I'd journaled, and then start over again. Needless to say I don't have any journals from my teen years.
This past winter I started journaling with some pages I found online. I really enjoyed the time journaling and since it was something I printed out I didn't feel the need to do it every single day.
Since I enjoyed it so much, I started thinking about the One Line a Day journal. Since it is not only a dated journal, but a 5-year dated journal, I wondered if I would be able to keep up with it! After all, I couldn't exactly tear pages out of it! So at the beginning of this year I started a file on my computer and would type up a line for each day. Around April I decided I truly wanted a 5-year journal, so I got one (and filled in all the dates from my computer file)!
So far, so good! I keep it out on the counter, and fill it in at the end of the day. Sometimes I'll not record for a few days, but it's always pretty easy to go back and write a sentence or two. I'm looking forward to using this over the next four and a half years!
Interested in getting one for yourself? I bought mine with a gift card at Target, and they are available at most bookstores. Amazon also sells them here (affiliate link).
