Many Go To Estate Sales, Antique Malls And On-Line Auction Sites

    There’s a great variety of old stuff … toys … pictures, magazines, gizmos … old diaries …

    I was looking at YouTube Videos and found a few regarding old diaries … This young woman was interested in the romantic stuff one would record in a diary … 

    I’m not especially interested in snooping on the private thoughts of others … It was written as a personal thing … not to be lost and picked up and sold to be shared publicly …

    I Was Thinking It Would Be Kind Of A Good Idea To Keep A Diary Or Journal For The Upcoming New Year

    A diary or a journal would make a lovely gift …

    Just know that in 20, 30, 50 or even a hundred years, it may be “found” and read by complete strangers!!

    But … with social media … Many share all aspects of their lives publicly … So … is a diary something one would actually keep?

    I Keep A Tarot Journal As I’m Learning To Read Tarot Cards … I Do Have A Different One For Each Of My Tarot Decks

    I wonder if they are something I would want to share with others … Initially I thought of them as a learning tool … But perhaps some of my questions and answers are a bit personal … I may not want them to get into the wrong hands …

    I’m really leaning towards private thoughts are to be kept private … And, then again … It may be interesting to look back on in later years as we mature or our skills become more refined …

    I think a personal journal or diary in learning to play a musical instrument or learning to dance professionally or something of that nature would be worthwhile …

    Well … there are all degrees of what one would consider personal …

     

    I Thought The Diary Above Would Be Fun For All Ages

    I believe diaries should come with a warning about what to keep private and what to write down …

    You could write poetry … limericks are fun … Maybe a secret recipe that was handed down in your family … Look for something interesting and fun that you wouldn’t mind others reading …

    Diaries can be fun … so if you decide to buy one or several keep in mind what would happen if they fell into the wrong hands … It’s not a slam book … Try not to make it hurtful … Yet at times we do get hurt … even by a best friend … but we don’t have to get all ugly about it …

    I’m interested in your thoughts on the subject of diaries and journals. Leave me a comment below.

    Thanks for stopping by!
