She said they have traveled so much and they record all their trips in their 10 year journal. They both said the journal had become a treasure trove of their memories. How precious!

Does 10 years seem too daunting to you at our age? Try a 5 year journal. Whatever journaling you do, the important thing is to do it! Take 5 minutes a day – that’s all.

    My daughter received a 5 year journal when she graduated High school… she loves it! It will follow her through university.

  2. I love journaling but I must admit it has fallen off my radar recently. It is just a matter of getting back into the habit. Thanks for the reminder. Love the idea of a ten year journal, mine are a mish mash of all sorts of books that took my fancy at the time and in fact I just disposed of a couple of empty ones because I had ‘gone off” the look of them.
