Many people keep journals to record the day-to-day events in their own lives, process stressful events, problem-solve, or keep to-do lists. Which improves your self-confidence level and pleasure.

A camera can capture moments. But journals can recreate the moment and will let you go back and feel what you felt. No matter what type of journal you keep, it’s a great way to force yourself to start writing and engage in a process of self-improvement.

A Day to Remember:

Every day is a Day to Remember if you believe that Life is a one-time experience.  It took billions of lightyears and trillions of particles to create you and put you at this specific time and space to have this experience called life.

Having noting down all your experiences will help you see through time and space and might help you get connected to what/who created you. 

This what/who depends on what or who you believe in. Call it Universe or Call it by a Name but we all know there is an existence that is beyond our understanding, 

A day to me is just a sequence of dots that when connected properly will help you understand your purpose on Earth or the purpose of Existence self. 

Success and Growth to be simplified are just understandings of purpose, cause, and conflict. A personal journal is a great way to help to understand what has to be understood about yourself. 

Start and end your day with your journal, and may it know the secrets the world never has to know.
