Have I an insane obsession for notebooks, stationery and little books? Yes, I know. But as soon as I saw the One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book (£10.99) on Amazon, I just knew I had to get it. Lucky enough my boyfriend was super kind and sweet to order me one copy which made a super nice little present and now I’m even more excited to fill it in everyday! And let’s face it: it’s too cute to handle.
The idea behind it is to write a few lines a day about what happened to you that particular day, what made you happy or sad, something you want to remember or simply a sentence that sum up your day perfectly and just do it every single day for 5 years. What makes it a super cool project is that year by year you’ll be able to see what you were doing the exact same day one, two, three, four and five years ago, which to me sounds like such an interesting thing. People change a lot year after year and I can see myself growing a lot during the upcoming five years – I feel like when you are living in your twenty something everything can change all suddenly and you get to know so many new things, like having your first own flat, your first job, building a new family which is what I hope to to in the next five years and which will be lovely to document step by step.
I know this is not exactly a “little” project (as I’m calling it) but a more challenging one and that I’ve never been good with challenges, but I like the thought of me the next year reading what I wrote today, and I hope this will be enough to make me feel always passionate about it and never forget to write my line a day. I was one of those little girls who always wanted a secret diary and when she finally got one she just forgot about writing her stuff inside, but I still find diaries super fascinating and this can be a grown up version of my old secret diaries and hopefully a grown up version of myself won’t forget about filling it every night! I also think taking the time to examine your days every night is a really nice opportunity to appreciate the little things, it makes you think about every thing that happened, what made you happy or sad and makes you appreciate something from your days even if they weren’t that good.
Being that you can add your current year yourself, this means you can start anytime really!
Are you planning something similar?
