One Sentence Journaling
If you have read many of my posts, you know that I can be verbose at times 🙂 All of my life I have wanted to journal. In my almost six decades of life, I have OFTEN been saddened that I never kept up with journaling. LOTS of good stories whose details will forever be forgotten.
So it was with great pleasure when I found a book in Barnes and Noble last year that was called the One Sentence Journal. I didn’t like the book at all. It was set up to write for five years, it was small and cramped and visually boring. Nothing about it appealed to my senses, but the idea intrigued me.
So I found a beautiful leather journal and I keep it on my bedside table. At the end of the day, rather than feeling like I have to write an epistle, I summarize the day with only one or two sentences. In reading thru it, it is easy to remember the details. If they aren’t details that I would remember a year from now, I will jot a few ideas down to refresh my memory.
It has been satisfying in helping me remember instances and WHEN they happened. It also helps me to focus on what is important in my days, and what I might want to change. One sentence is usually all it takes.
