Do you have a journaling problem?
Is it hard for you to find and/or tell the story?
Here’s a fun and easy way to share a lot of good details about your life without having to think or try very hard at all…
Whip out a Top Ten list.
Don’t think hard about it.
Each item doesn’t have to truly be your top ten favorite things in all the world.
The idea is to jot down ten things that you’re enjoying right now.
You can do this again and again. A few years from now you’ll have lots of, “Oh yeah!” moments as you remember little everyday details that ended up being a phase that came and went.
- Are you into wearing peach lately?
- Are you obsessed with the Into the Woods soundtrack?
- Are you in love with the new Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore?
- Are you prepping for a big Super Bowl party this weekend?
Those might be your current top ten.
In another month or two you’ll have a whole new list of things you’re enjoying.
A year or two from now you’ll be surprised by how much this little list says about you and your family.
Want some fun layout ideas? I put together two pages — one with a top ten list I made a few weeks ago, and another with a list I made way back in 2006!
I put both layouts together on video in the newest Paperclipping episode.
