Does anybody still keep a diary? And no, not a blog, but one of those real ones written in a real paper notebook, that is not supposed to be read by anybody ever? These things are great, seriously. Free writing is one of the most relaxing things that exist, you just free your mind from everything that has been on it, let it all out without even noticing and get that nice feeling of satisfaction and relief afterwards. I’ve had one since forever but I have to admit that since I’m living with a boy for years already, I haven’t been writing much recently. My childhood and teenage years have been pretty much immortalised in it though and yesterday I happened to find my old diary and reread a big part of it. I have to tell you, this is like the funniest and most exciting book I’ve ever read, it’s like reliving these moments all over again.
Seriously, if you’ve never kept a journal you have to try for once. First, because of it’s therapeutic effects. And second, rereading it at some point later is really a lot of fun and super interesting. It’s so refreshing to go back to the roots and remember your exact thoughts from years ago and I personally find it very inspiring 🙂
