A lesson from a security guard on journal writing

When I saw a security guard holding a logbook, I remember the conversation I had with a school guard when I was still a high school student.

What are you doing?“, I asked.

Writing a journal log,” he replied.

He then explained that the entries will help them in the future if an incident happen. The log will serve as an evidence when they need it during an investigation.

Though I am not a security guard, I think what he shared to me is very insightful. Writing my journal everyday will benefit me since I might need it one day when I find myself in times of distress. It could be my source of inspiration when rainy days come.

How about you, do you hear good advice from people whom you don’t expect to give advice?
