I love journaling. I have three journals at the moment.
#1. Personal journal. It spans about 3-4 years. That's where I write down my thoughts, daily events, and such. I have a couple of pictures in it, and a few stapled cards that meant something special to me. I haven't opened it since last August, but I think of it daily, and write in spurts.
#2. I keep a journal for my stepdaughter who is 15 at the moment. I started working on it last June/July (?). It's almost like a long letter to her, with poems, and quotes, and scrapbooking stickers, and photos, and tickets' stubs, etc. etc. etc. I write in it faithfully at least 2-3 times a month. I describe the things we did together, how I felt about it, how I thought she felt about it. School happenings, our conversations, just day to day things, and special events. I plan on giving her the journal when she graduates from High School. When I have kids of my own, I'll definitely continue the tradition and will keep a journal for each one.
#3. Reading journal. I print out covers of the books I read and write down my thoughts (about a paragraph) on each one. I have about 30 entries in it, I have kept this journal since December. It seems like such a great way to reflect on my readings.
#4. Doesn't exist... But! I would love to have a nature journal or a sketch journal... I am not in the right place and time for it yet, I do feel as if it's one of those things that I will create later on in my life with sketches of birds and flowers, and pressed treeleaves and twigs..
New endeavor coming soon...
