One of the valuable reasons for preserving your life story is because in the process you will confront these life changing experiences. You will discover how they affect your beliefs, your actions and the way you view life. Sometimes returning to these memories helps you grow. This can be especially beneficial if any of the events in your past are holding you back from truly living life to the fullest.
Not only do you owe yourself the benefit of knowing what has most impacted your life. You really have an obligation to share that with others. We are not meant to live in isolation. Each of us has something to contribute to others. You may never make world history, be famous or rich or any of the other things the world often tells us are important. However, if your children, your parents, your spouse, siblings, relatives, friends, co-workers and even complete strangers are deprived of any beneficial lessons from your time on the planet then it is a loss for all of us.

For this swap, you will buy a journal and write about the top 5 profound life changing events you have had in your life. Each entry, I imagine, would be a few pages long. Life changing events are any events that made you grow, change who you are, anything that truly affected you on a very deep level. Some examples are having a baby, death of a loved one, finding God, divorce, marriage, childhood trauma even. Whatever helped shape you into the person you are today. I think this will prove to be very insightful into who each of us are with things we have been through. The journal can be handmade, store bought, and can be any size. Feel free to embellish your journal. Stickers, quotes, song lyrics, etc.
