I'm going to start a new journaling challenge, and I hope some of you (or maybe many of you) will join me.
We journal for different reasons and in different styles. I know that my journals include far more introspection, rather than facts and things that go on in my daily life. So I have decided to record a week of my life in minute detail.
So this will be what is generally a diary entry - logging things that happen. Actual events. People you meet, things you see, things you eat, time you go to bed....as many details as you wish.
That doesn't mean that you can include the usual things you journal. So for example, I will still no doubt include my introspection, my feelings about various things, lists and tasks and whatever else comes to mind. But the main thing to make sure is that you record your week as it truly happens, so that years from now when you look back at these entries, you will know exactly what this particular week was like.
Don't worry if it feels mundane. Most of us live through mundane days, but so did all the people whose lives we now find fascinating.
I will be happy to post excerpts from people's entries so feel free to send them to me.
The challenge will be for August 22 to August 28. It begins at midnight on August 21, and ends at Midnight on August 28. So entries for this challenge must be from this time period. I hope you will join in, and we can share this journey together, and share some of our entries or discuss how we found the experience, and what we learned if anything.
