The right headline can crystallize a moment in time. For example:
“The First Footstep” – Evening Standard, July 21, 1969
“VE-Day – It’s All Over” – Daily Mail, May 8, 1945
“War on America” – New York Times, September 12, 2001
“Obama: Racial Barrier Falls in Decisive Victory” – New York Times, November 5, 2008
Your planner can help shape your memories, and turn everyday moments into special occasions. Try writing “Today, I…” and create a headline of your own for each day. Even if it’s as simple as an old friend giving you a hug or trying a new and delicious menu item at your favorite restaurant, this exercise can help emphasize the positive in your life while acting as an introduction to journal writing.
