This is not just a gift to future generations; it's a gift to yourself. It can give your life a sense of purpose and control. It can help you make sense of past events and current experiences.
It puts you in the driver's seat of your life story—you get to decide what you write about and how you interpret and connect past events.
I also try to keep up with my 5-year question a day journal, which will wrap up at the end of March.

It's just a way to get into the habit of reflecting over my life and writing quickly and succinctly.
In the end, I'm sure some of these stories will spark more in-depth memories that I may want to write about in another venue, such as another of my journals, an article for Family Search, or a story I upload to my profile on Family Tree (so it can be found by future generations of my family).

This is your project, and you get to make the rules. The stories you tell will be random, pulled from many different periods of your life. This is just a collection of stories, not your comprehensive life story. You don't have to answer each question with a paragraph-style response.
But the project has the potential to make you a better writer, get you in the habit of exploring your past, and even put you in the mindset to write your comprehensive life story. Some questions might be better answered with a bulleted list.
