I've always wanted to journal, but before 2015, I would take it up for a week or so, then quit. 2015 was the year of journaling. Meshari introduced me to this Japanese travel journal, that had a system and it appealed to me. I bought a midori and it was one of the best 2015 investments.
I'd like to believe this journal helped me when I wanted to do something creative but felt uninspired/stuck. It also reminded me that memories can be documented in any way we see fit. Flipping through both notebooks now was a real treat. Can't wait for future me to flip through them.
