Let me tell you a secret.
Until 2007, I am not a daily journal person. Well, I thought, I am not a high school girl anymore, so I don't need one. Then at the end of 2007, my best friend, Sanny, who made all the effort to drag me to Starbuck every chance she got (hehe,sorry,hun!but, really, I love become a coffee lovers like you by the end of the year!) told me that Starbuck had offered a daily journal with exchange for some stamps, so, look at the cool journal it was, I interested...and together with her, tried to collect all the stamps required.
Yes, of course we got it!
Well, after the journal was in my hand...with all the effort...I thought, will be such a waste if I don't use it. So I tried to filled it in. Day to day. Sometimes daily, sometimes weekly, but basically, it recorded all what happen in my life in simple way. Just write a few lines. Sometimes only pictures will do as well. If I got best quote I will put it there too. Little knick knack, tag, stickers, sign, brochure, anything from my journey will ended here. No wonder it become so bulky at the end of the year!
So, what is the secret, you ask me.
Aside from all the other album and scrapbook I made that also recording my life, I tell you, this is different. You don't have to be perfect, to do the best combination, you just free to record what you thought, what you feel, either you want to show it to other soul or not is up to you, and by doing it for a year and look at back to it again now, I think this is healthy.
Good for your mind.
Good for your soul.
Don't trust me just yet.
Go try it by yourself.
Yes, of course.
I begin another one this year. Still got it from Starbuck.
