Use Your Journal to Connect the Dots of Your LifeBy
Journaling has been a method of chronicling one’s life story for centuries. Journaling has even grown so much so that we have learned about all sorts of journals to keep: dieting, memoirs, exercise, children, academic.
Many people have a burning desire to write their own memoir. The trouble is they never get around to writing it because they don’t know where to get started. Using a journal can be extremely productive in helping you put it all together. This article will show you how you can use your journal to connect the dots of your life.
Begin with a brand new journal or notebook. Decide if you want to work from date to birth, or birth to date.
At the beginning of the book, jot the date that you’re beginning this project. You’ll want to be able to measure the amount of time it takes to complete this. Starting at the first page of the journal, write your date of birth at the top of the page.
Count 10 pages. Write the number 1 at the top of the next page. Skip another ten pages then write the number 2 at the top of the next page. Continue doing this until you reach your current age now. You might want to skip more or less pages between some years. That is totally up to you. Just be sure you leave enough blank pages to write on for each year.
After you finish with step three, go back to the beginning and start writing about things that happened in each year of your life. Some years may hold no memories for you. Skip them and go back to them later when you can interview someone who knew you well then.
By the time you reach the end of the journal, you will have a book full of memories and information. Doing this exercise is a great way to chronicle your life. You will probably learn a lot of things you didn’t know. You might stir up old memories long forgotten as well. Have fun and don’t be afraid to ask questions to family members.Written by Charged Audio - Visit Website
