Daily calendar that gets better every year!

Today I would like to share a calendar that I have been doing for the past years. It is a perpetual calendar that is reused each year and gets better the longer you use it! Each day one write the year and something that happened that day. The following years, I love being reminded of what I did on that day.

My inspiration came from this post. The author shows all the steps - but really it is just a matter of finding some lined cards and stamping the day on each of them. Then write something every day, including the year. 

I was also motivated by this video on TED where the author takes one second of video every day of his life, then edits them together into a montage that prompts him to think how he approaches each day. 
Like him, I was frustrated not remembering things I've done in the past and have no recollection of... unless someone or something brings it back up. Just a sentence (or for him one second video) is a key to trigger memories about the event.

I like to find something nice to remember about each day. Every day matters!
