I tell everyone this and I mean it. Buy a journal. Carry it with you everywhere you go. And I mean everywhere. Write about your favourite moments, your least favourite moments, ideas, grocery lists, people you’ve met, strangers you’ve walked past on the street, favourite quotes, words to remember, what the sky looked like at 7 pm, new songs you’ve discovered and what they mean to you, your childhood, places you want to go to places you’ve been, wrote about your passions, how you feel in this exact moment, draw out the mountains, scribble all over the pages. And when that one gets full, buy a new one. Reread it in 2 years, 20 years, when you need a good laugh when you’re crying on your bathroom floor, read it to your children. You need to remember these moments in your life. They are so important.
