Effortless Journaling: OhLife!


Pin It

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it on this blog, {heh heh} but I have real-true-diagnosed AD/HD. 
{Versus the kind everyone thinks they have when they’ve lost their keys again.}

One of the manymanymany things I hate about being AD/HD is seeing the areas I ‘lack.’ One of them being the topic of journaling. My mother has literally dozens of journals, spanning from the time she could write up until… yesterday, probably. Growing up I saw her journal, and always assumed I would journal, too. You know. When I was older.
I love to buy journals.

I do not love to write in journals.

Of course this is a whole other avenue of Mom Guilt for me: not recording all the precious moments (snort) of my darling (snort) children’s lives. {Okay, they are pretty cute… most of the time.} My mom is even working on typing all her journals, and is slowly searching out our names so we can see the things she wrote about us in her journal, compiled nicely to read at our pleasure. {Pretty sure I don’t want to read all she had to say about me growing up!}

Anyway, I’ve never had a successful track record of journaling. It’s just too hard to remember to pick it up at the end of the day. Now I will tell you a story:

Once upon a time, I found a website called OhLife. It was free. I signed up. And everyday they would email me a question: How did my day go? Using my sort-of-smartphone, I replied. And the next day they emailed me again. I replied again. And we lived happily ever after…

That really is “it” in a nutshell. You sign up for OhLife. You set how often you would like to be reminded: daily or weekly? Then they email you: How did your day go?

You write a reply. You can even send an image, if you’d like. You can write a lot. I do this often, because once I’m thinking about my day, it’s hard to stop. But you can also write a little. Sometimes, it’s a veryverybad day. I don’t want to think about it. Sometimes, I’m just too tired to write much. It looks like this:

If I complain too much, I always feel the need to stick something in super sweet, so that they know I still love them. You know, in case they ever actually do read this.

But generally, my posts are a little more average in length, and might tell a rundown of my day to a cute story one of the kiddos did. Like this:

AD/HD or not, I’m journaling consistently, with little effort on my part, since November.  {Now I just need to find a way to do effortless laundry…}

PS – Dear OhLife, I provided this post for you, free of charge! You didn’t even ask me. I’m pretty cool like that.
