Years and years ago I kept a journal. At the end of everyday I would take that time for myself to write about my day and thoughts. I always had a sense of accomplishment that I was able to keep it up for years. Then motherhood happened to me. I stopped writing in my journal. I guess after becoming a mother I just didn’t have the time for myself to write a page or two everyday. I look back on those days and entries and really miss that time for myself.
Recently I found something really cool. The Journal 10+ is a dated ten year journal that only takes up to 5 minutes a day. Since having it, I have been able to use it everyday without feeling like I have to fill up page after page. I am able to write many things down it like dates, kids first happenings as well as just a quick thought to look back on later. I love that one day I can look back on it and see ten years all in one journal. This would make a great gift for someone else or as a gift to yourself. You can find out more about the journals on their website.
