Default Diaries

iKEEP SMALL one in handbag my bible so I know what I am doing and when also clients appts.

I also keep larger on in bedside drawer, I find I am one of those people who it helps to write things down, especially given the angst we have been through last 3 years.

Somehow I get sense relief puting my innermost t houghts and emotions in writing.
When we were going through bad patch oh and myself few years ago he looked in my diary and it was not a happy time!! That sort of diary should be private but not sure it matters when you are long gone and someone said.

I so agree about putting things in writing to help you get a clearer perspective on things.If I don't do this sometimes it just keeps going round and round in my head.
I used to keep a diary when I was younger but not any more.

Wasn't there some Government project during the last war for ordinary people to keep a diary of day to day events? I read a book called "(somebody) Last's War" which recounted her daily life during this time and found it very interesting.

I have online dairies/journals on 2 forums which I have belonged to for years. Like Anne, it helps me immensely to write things down there and saves me a fortune on therapy
OH used to keep a paper diary in her 20's. She showed me some a while ago. It was fascinating (well parts it were boring. She worked in a plant nursery then, so a lot of it was about transplanting etc etc!!) One year covered her buying her 1st house, a trip to Florida, her father dying, and the end of one relationship and beginnings of another. Interesting to see a snapshot of a persons life like that

I suppose once we're gone, we can't keep things private. If we don't want them read, we should hide them so well no one would ever find them!!

There are really two sorts of diaries aren't there?
One of things to do etc.and one for things that have been done and personal thoughts.
