I’m not sure about you but I have a real weakness store; a shop that I can’t go past without going in, and equally can’t go in without buying something. For me, it’s Waterstones. Ever since I was a little girl I have loved book shops. I really feel like they are magical places full of dreams, ideas, stories and information. Book shops speak to me – and Waterstones more than most.
On this occasion, I made a purchase which I am really excited to share with you. It’s not something I ever would have thought about or even know existed but it’s such a brilliant and special idea. I wish I’d thought of it to be honest!
So what is it?
As you can see it’s a gorgeous little hard back book, embossed with gold and gold edged pages. It really is something beautiful to behold.
But it was the idea of this little book which attracted me to it. It’s called ‘One Line A Day..’ And that’s the idea of it basically. Inside it looks kind of like a diary but with a very small section for each day – enough to write one or two lines a day. The idea is that every day you jot down a line about what you did, how you’re feeling, something funny, something sad, something – anything! And there is enough space for five years worth of lines.
I’m so excited to start it in January! I think the key is going to be remembering to do it every night, being consistent and being honest. There are bound to be ups and downs in five years and I won’t want to read how every day was ‘amazing’ in the future! I bought this book because I think looking back over the lines and comments across five years of my life will be amazing. Especially since we have so many plans for the next five years and I hope they will be the most exciting years yet!
What do you think of this journaling idea? What you take the challenge?
