If dog is man’s best friend, then pictures and lists might just be a journaler’s best friend.
Folks, you have got to go peek inside Trixie’s The Marvelous pet journal to get a feel for how you can capture great stories without spending a ton of time writing. Judy, Trixie’s owner, uses photos to capture her spunky pup’s personality and funny moments. The pages of this journal crack me up! Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
The lists in Trixie’s book show how effective jotting down short, simple thoughts can be for preserving memories with Gadanke’s classic prompts. You don’t have to write an entire narrative about a particular thing that happened or about what makes you laugh about a person (or in this case a pooch). A list does the trick!
In the years to come, those little collections of thoughts will be all you need to get you remembering the stories behind those fun lists.
What sort of list could you write in your journal today?
