Why You Should Always Keep An Old-School Diary

A lot of people chart their life progress. There are tonnes of on-line platforms where people share snippets of their life. But having a journal is so much different. And an old school one when it comes to that. Something that is just for you. You don't need to share it with anyone else. It's all your thoughts, your desires, your needs and wants. No one to judge you. I was a huge diary penner as a teenager and as a shy unsociable person it was the most authentic outlet for me. And sitting back and having a look at the current social media landscape, it seriously worries me that young women won't be taking to this form of outlet. We're too concerned about emulating the success of things that aren't wholly real on-line than talk through the highs and lows of our day to ourselves. Here I present to you a couple reasons why a notebook full of your secrets is the best way forward- 'The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it-' James M. Barrie

It'll give you peace of mind

You can complain to your hearts content 

It's a judgement free zone

You can look back and reflect on your achievements 

A great tool to track your progress

Fabulous for to-do lists and keeping yourself organised 

You can come up with great ideas
