Have you ever written a diary? How do you feel about it now? Do you ever read it? What is your relationship with your diary? #MyDiary
I was skipping IndiSpire Prompts for a while due to excessive workload and today is one of the days I was feeling as if I had some verbal Viagra and I want to keep posting. As I was happily checking out the IndiSpire edition of this week, I heart skipped a beat because this was exactly something I wanted to write about. Read on!
I took a new year resolution this year that I will write diary every single day but then my resolutions lie always “Bhadh mein gaya” (Went to hell/collapsed/backfired). However, I do have written a lot of diary entries since childhood, some preserved safely, some destroyed over time, some shared into stories, and many entries that I could neither save, nor throw away.
What exactly do I write on my diary?
Happy days are alike and each unhappy day is unhappy in its’ own way! ~ My version of the Anna Karenina principle. I am this person who shares happiness in my blog, in FB, with friends, and with anyone. Generally, people say Leo’s problem is whole world’s problem but they are wrong. Leo’s happiness is whole world’s happiness and Leo’s worries even they themselves don’t know it. My happy days’ entries on my diary will be for just few lines and my sad day entries go on for pages together.
How do I feel about writing my diary?
If something that keeps me alive apart from music and chocolates (oh yeah, I love chocolates – do send me some 😛 ) then it is my writing. If I am taking a break from writing and if you don’t find anything on my blog, FB, or guest posting blogs for consecutive 5 days that means I am in terrible mess and you will find me in nearest hospital or worse I might be dead. So you will now exactly know how I feel about writing and when I love writing blogs this much that means I will love writing diaries even more because I can be more truthful and more expressive as there will be tons of privacy.
Do you ever read it?
After reading a couple of pages, I stop reading my diary because I know that even if I read a page more I will cry. However, today I had gathered strengths to read the diary to write about how it feels. Finally I finished reading the whole of my diary and here are some excerpts that I have cleverly clicked so that I don’t give away much but still you can read through it to know a little bit more about me.
What is my relationship with my diary?
After reading the diary I have jotted down few points;
- My diary is my best friend and I share all my feelings with it.
- I am more truthful and I understand myself more while I write on my journal.
- I really can see my whole life in front of me when I read my diary.
- I haven’t written on my diary for past 80 days – that’s exactly since the time I went for goa.
- It doesn’t mean life wasn’t complicated or I had nothing to share with my diary but I had avoided my best friend (diary) for another best friend.
- Again, I am writing a diary entry today. I don’t know why!
Well, I am not going to preach anything or deduce anything. Writing diary helps. Period!
P.S: Reading the diary again doesn’t.
P.P.S: 5 tissues wasted.
