Since I was thirteen years old, I've been keeping a journal. I was first inspired by Anne Frank, and then I came to recognize that journaling is a good tool for fine-tuning the practices of self-evaluation, empathy, and intuitive thinking. For years I've kept journals, and they've come in many different forms. Some were a collection of brain dumps, some were writing a page based on a particular prompt, and others were bullet journals or lists, kept electronically. Time and again, I return to journaling because I find it a useful way to empty my brain, take my own inventory, and plan for the days ahead.
Angela's List Your Life is subtitled, A Modern-Day Memoir, and I can certainly see the similarity. Her approach is a wondrous hybrid of several journaling techniques, wrapped up into a single source where you can list your ideas, prompt your memory, and stir emotions, all while she sits beside you, offering her personal thoughts, memories, and experiences of a life well-lived. In fact, if you're interested in writing your own memoir, Angela is a waterfall of inspiration, she shares her story with you, as she also encourages you to write your own. Through reading this book, you will tell your story as only you can, and you'll feel the comfort of having a partner in the process.
If you've never kept a journal before, I recommend this book as a first step to what could be a life of storytelling.
