Charles Darwin, Marie Curie, Thomas Edison, and Frida Kahlo were among the most important people in history who kept detailed journals of their lives. Those journals served two purposes: they served as a permanent record for posterity and, presumably, as a cathartic release for the individuals who wrote them.

Even if you don’t think you need either, keeping a journal has a lot of advantages that you can start enjoying right now. Perhaps you’d like to leave something for your children that tells them about your life and what you’ve achieved. Perhaps you’re more pragmatic and looking for a way…
