A 5 Year Journal


I had seen this book floating around and thought it was such a lovely idea. From a young age I had been writing diaries of my own, I would get one of those big note pads and literally write whatever was on my mind, I have so many big notepads filled with words written by my younger self. As embarrassing as they can be looking back on them I absolutely love reading them and having all those memories and feelings come flooding back and laughing away at myself. 


As I grew older I stopped writing, I had always wanted to get back into writing diaries but just never had the motivation, until now with a little help. 


I had been so excited ordering this 5 year journal because I love filling out things like this. For the next 5 years this diary has a question for you every day in which you can answer as detailed as you like or as simple as you like. It has meaningful questions, questions about the future or questions about literally anything. I've only flicked through the pages up until today's date because I like the idea of having a surprise question and only seeing that question on the day I fill it out. 


It's actually a lot smaller than I originally thought it would be, but with it being small it means it'll be easier to take away with you when you are travelling. I love the way it's designed with it's golden edges around the pages. 
I'm excited to see this complete in 5 years and see how my answers change or maybe they'll stay the same? It's just a really fun book to fill out if you don't feel motivated to write your own diary. 

Have you got this diary? Here is a link if you are interested in having a go yourself.

  6. I was looking at this in Waterstones the other day ! I'd love to try it :) I didn't used to be able to keep up filing in things like this but other the last month I've had a positivity diary and have got into the routine of writing a line about one good thing that happens everyday , so I think I could actually managed to be committed to something like this ! How much was the book ? :)

    lots of love, Marianne xxx

    1. It's a really easy way to be committed to writing a diary because it hardly takes any time out of your day. If I remember rightly I got his for about £8 or so? X

  12. That's such a cool idea! It's really beautiful to have something like that to look back at, you never know how some of those things can help you in the future if you feel lost or stuck and just the beauty of reading it many years later!

  13. Awww, what a beautiful concept! I love writing in journals but I write so inconsistently that I wouldn't be able to write for five years straight! Haha, but it is an interesting to see how we've grown and how we've changed. It's incredible! <3
