The idea is simple: you write one sentence every night - it can be anything from your day that you want to remember. Then as the years go by, you build up your diary and can start comparing entries so you can see what you were doing or feeling on the same day in previous years.
There's no years marked so you could actually buy the diary and start at any point in the year, on any year you like. My sister owns the previous diary by the Potter Style range which was a Q&A journal - a much better idea in my opinion because the diary asked you a new question every day and you would be able to compare 5 years of answers to the same question on each day. More fun but that diary is sadly nowhere to be found and this one is a decent substitute: you get a quote/thought for each day - your diary entries don't have to relate to the quote though so your entries could be anything at all. Obviously if you don't want the quotes each day or you don't like the blue & yellow quirky design, you could buy yourself any 5-year diary that takes your fancy and keep your 5 year record like that.
Either way, it's a great idea and it's amazing how one sentence (or a little cluster of sentences as I often make!) can prompt you to remember the day with such vivd recollection in years to come. It's also perfect for people who like the idea of keeping a memory journal or diary of some sort but just don't have the time!
Another good thing is you can start it anytime so that 1st January terror is removed. I started mine on January 31st
Some reviews mentioned it's too small but I disagree it would fit in your bag with ease and would be perfect for traveling
If you want to write pages and pages this isn't for you put if you want to get in the habit of keeping a Journals it's perfect
