One Line a Day

A few years.. actually almost a decade ago I started a 'one line a day' journal. I blogged about it here. I was never much of a journaling kind growing up. But after D was born I wanted to remember everything.. even the small things. Now almost a decade ago I wish I had started it earlier.. remember more about my pregnancy.. remember the early kid free years of marriage. So much so.. that at the start of the year I started journals for the boys.


        
Currently I fill the journal for them.. else they'd never do it.. 


This one is mine.. I'm about the finish my second journal.. it's so much fun looking back at what we did that day in the past years.

I love that - so what do you journal - what they do or have done or what they say - what kind of things? They will love that. sandie

This is such a great idea!

I'm glad you're doing this! I journaled for years (not always daily, but often), but once I started blogging (about 15 years ago), I slacked off.

this is awesome. I journal and did it from 14 yo until my early twenties then QUIT until my mid forties. Yup, no documentation of my children nor what those little bits of interesting things they said or did....I am appalled at myself.

These are so great - it's a nice reminder of what you've had happen and all the little moments! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

I'm loving this idea, as I've always regretted not keeping a journal beyond my teenage years. My blog kind of replaces that, but I too wish I'd started earlier. A wonderful idea to start keeping them for your boys! xxx

What a wonderful idea. I have never journalled, but I am realising just how many things I have forgotten...

A friend of mine was recently telling me that journaling has helped her to manage her stress.

I've seen these kinds of blog posts, but I didn't know there was an actual journal for it you could buy. That is so neat and now you have me wondering if this is something I need to start. :)

This is such a great idea and so much less overwhelming than journaling!

Veronica Lee said...

Love the idea, Hena.

I started keeping a diary at the age of 12 until I was 30!

Als Kind habe ich auch immer ein Tagebuch geführt. Jetzt leider schon lange nicht mehr.

Wonderful idea, I should do that too, when my son is 1 year old☺

Journalling is the best, isn't it?:) I love that you started one for the boys. I just finished the 3-year KonMari gratitude journal and it was definitely fun looking back:)

I used to do this when I was in college! It's so great because you easily forget about most of the things you and people you see. I just started using a planner again and I caught myself trying to use as it a journal as well. DO you think I should do this for my toddler, or is she too young? Have a great week!

I used to keep diaries when I was younger. Journaling can teach us a lot about ourselves.

Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra said...

This is such a wonderful idea. I hope that they'll keep up with the journals once it's time to write their own line a day.

Debbie said...

this is such a great journaling idea, the books are beautiful!!!

Sasha said...

This is such a great idea, Hena! What a lovely keepsake to have for the future! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! XXX

I love journaling too and have started when I was pregnant with my kids - I record little things in an electronic journal. We love reading through it!

Stefanie said...

You're such a great mom.

“One Line A Day” journal by jotting down all important memories that you want to remember in future is a great way dear Hena. From this article it is very clear how much you enjoy writing a line one day. Your pre-pregnancy days, during pregnancy times and once the boys were born is a long time to account and done very well.
