To my Secret Keeper, Dear Diary- A letter for You – #Blogchattera2z #AtoZchallenge

Scattered with the dust all around, tied with the rope,

there she found, The letters of love.

the letters she always wanted to send :)

Here’s to my Secret keeper, Dear Diary,

Thank you.

Thank you for listening to all my thoughts with patience. When I just stared at you and you stared back with a hope that I will write something and lighten my heart.

There were so many Crumpled papers, There were tears, tears of joy as well as anger. There were times when I just wrote a line and tore the page. There were times when I filled the page with my signature. There were times when I filled it with weird drawings or just scribbles.

Dear diary, thank you for keeping my desires, my wishes and my unspoken words safe.

Thank you for being my empty canvas, letting me fill it with the colours I love. With the worst handwriting that I have. For the time when I just filled you with love when I was excited, telling you what all happend, to the time when I just furiously poured my heart out there.

For writing my daily thoughts to maintaining a calendar, you were there to witness this growth. you saw me at my worst, you saw me when things were changing, when I changed.

Thank you for being someone whom I can always come back to.

    I used to write dairy when I was in college. It had everything about my new crushes, friendship fights.. Unfortunately, I lost it and I wonder who all might have read it :D Great post Vidhya!

    Diary is where almost all of us started. Diary took in everything we wrote, as a kid. The diary ahs kept my childhood safe. Thank you, dear diary. Great Post!

      Writing a diary is what kept me from crumbling down after I lost my mother. You have written a beautiful letter. I only wish that the diary stayed and was not burnt.

    Writing a diary is a special experience though I have never tried it out myself. Sooner or later a diary becomes a close friend playing the role of a confidante and a guide. When you tell a diary your innermost thoughts and feelings and you read the stuff back the diary actually replies to you as reading what you have written makes you reflect. This way a diary becomes a friend who speaks back when spoken to. And there is nothing like an actual diary. None of these modern electronic diaries can ever replace the one made of paper.

    Maintaining a diary is a good habit. Eventually one can learn to clearly express their inner feelings and doubts in the privacy of their diary pages. Many a time reading a diary, though it is strictly against privacy, gives an idea about mental state of the writer. It is kind of like modern day blogging, or Facebook page. Only difference between diary is strictly for the owner, unless he / she decides to share.

    That’s lovely letter to your diary. There was a time when I used to write a diary back when I was a teenager. Just like you I used to write every little thing in the diary and I destroyed the pages when what I’d written was supposed to be a secret. This post of yours brought back memories.

    1. vidhya thakkar

      thankk youuu

    I had a very funny experience about maintaining a diary, In first year of hostel I started keeping a diary and wrote about laziness of my roommate in detail, and in my absence she read it all… OMG… you must have understood what followed.

    1. vidhya thakkar

      awww thankk youuu

    I have kept a “journal” as I call it, since 1989. It holds my heart as I often tell others. I love how it helps me connect the dots of God’s faithfulness to me through the years. So often we miss it because we forget the secrets we whispered in prayer to Him. But through journaling He has often shown me the connection which causes me to love and praise Him all the more. His faithfulness is astounding.
    Thanks for this great post revealing what a diary means to so many of us.

      So true!! Thank youuu

    That’s the ticket to keeping things secret. Burn after reading.

    1. vidhya thakkar

      hehe yess

  15. Harjeet Kaur

    That’s a very nice letter you have written Vidhya. Diaries are so personal. I never had that personal space to maintain a diary and never got into the habit later on. I am sure it is very therapeutic to put everything down on paper.

  16. Shubhra Rastogi

    Writing a diary is such a good habit. I used to do this when in school and college. Though now the frequency has reduced. I remember I had one with a cute little lock and key. Trust me it does hold a lot many secrets.

  17. Rashmi

    Lovely letter! Great that you find solace in pouring out all your emotions in your diary. Hope you have kept your dairy also alive.

  18. Manas Mukul

    Before blogging and digital things came into existence, dairy was best friend to so many. Nice post.

  19. kushal

    Journaling/writing diary is a great healing tool apart from being a great listener and an awesome friend. And you have expressed all of this and more so beautifully in ur post…

    1. vidhya thakkar

      thank youu

  20. Deepika

    I used to write a diary in my school and college days. I have a special diary for my favourite songs. I wrote the lyrics and then practised it. At that time I remembered the lyrics of all my favourite songs. Memories refreshed.

  21. PraGun

    In today’s digital time your post reminded me of my locked diary days. I use to chat, share, talk to my diary but sadly slowly my sophisticated nomadic life left me with lost diaries and I stopped. Your post bought memories of this beautiful hobby which is losing craze & charm.

    1. vidhya thakkar

      heheh true! I still have a lock diary

  22. Amrita

    I have always been someone, that despite being someone who came across as an extrovert, I was often aloof and had a lot of emotions bottled within me. It was then that I retorted to a diary. Not much has changed, just that the emotional baggage has lightened up. thanks to my habit of keeping a diary. I have improved a lot on my coping mechanism.

    1. vidhya thakkar

      I am the same. when it comes to expressing myself, I always go back to my diary

  25. Dipika

    Would you believe if I say, diary never loved me back the way I loved it? I have tried maintaining a diary many times, but the next time it will be in shreds for sounding so bizarre. Phew…

    1. vidhya thakkar

      Hahaha happened with me too many times

  26. Abhishek

    I wish I would have a same relationship with my diary too, like you have with yours ! First time visited this blog and in love with this.
    Thank you!
