Do you ever look back at old journals when you were a kid in elementary school or even look back at journals from when you were in high school and just laugh about how easy life actually was but in the moment felt like it was falling apart? Or read a story that was super impactful but maybe you forgot that it even happened? Or maybe you read the list of non-negotiables for your future spouse that you forgot you had and you look at who you’re with now and it either matches perfectly or just the complete opposite of who you thought you’d end up with?
I know some soon-to-be mamas will keep a pregnancy journal to process their feelings, track symptoms, when they felt their baby kick for the first time, etc. That way they can compare things with the second pregnancy, or reference it for a friend who is a new mom, etc.
Journals are so important because they help us remember the smallest details that are so hard to remember.
As an engaged bride or groom, have you ever asked a married person for advice on wedding planning and they couldn’t answer because they couldn’t remember their experience? Whether it be something along the lines of, “How did you come up with a budget and how did you stick to it?” or “What were things you did for your wedding that you loved or regretted?” or “How did you and your partner intentionally enjoy the engagement season?”
If this person didn’t have a place to write all these details down, they probably wouldn’t be able to give you the exact answer. They could probably make a good educational guess or even advice based on their opinions as a couple removed from wedding planning. But to give you an honest answer from when they were in your exact shoes… they probably wouldn’t be able to remember those details.
