Keeping A Diary
On this day in 1669 the famous writer Samuel Pepys
wrote the last entry in his diary. After relating how
his eyes were failing him, Pepys wrote:
". . . the good God prepare me!"
Many individuals have kept diaries/journals. Names that may
come to mind are: Anne Frank, Virginia Woolf, and Elie Wiesel.
We learn much of history through these diaries -- though many such
writings were not originally intended for publication.
Not so long ago, girls kept a diary with a lock.
Today in this digital age some choose other methods of keeping
track of events and/or feelings and thoughts. Blogs, for instance,
are open to journal or diary entries.
Your life matters. You are unique. If you have not tried it, keeping
a diary can help you grow, especially as you look back ten years
from now to see who you were becoming in this year 2014.
