I love my post about Journal Writing. I’m sure I go back and read it more often than anyone else reads it. It helps remind me of things I can write about to try to stay happy and positive. It also can help me remember the good memories of things that are happening right now, things I may forget later.
With the recent heart-breaking loss of a close family member I have been trying to record some of my memories of them before they start to fade in my mind. I already start to realize I can’t remember things I want to. This list is to try to help me get the memories flowing and be able to write them down when I think of them. The little things through out the day spark my memory but they are helping me to remember all of the positive things and be grateful for the good memories instead of focusing on the future without them.
