Journaling. Thought? Suggestions?

So, I've been thinking about starting to journal.
You know, something for me, or even my kids, to look back at in the future. 
But I was thinking I want to do it in more of a structured sense.

So my question for you guys is;
Do any of you know of any challenges, or templates of some kind that I could use as a guideline?

I tend to start journals,
and then never finish them. 

And I'd really like to turn this into something of a book.
A finished, well put together, piece of my life, 
That can be looked back on, and maybe even learned from.

I have been journal-ing faithfully for... 7 years now? I usually just free-write and see what I end up with (I try to fill one page at a minimum each time I write) and on days when I can't think of anything, I force myself to make a list of ten things that were good about the current day. Those lists double as cute journal entries and are also great mood-lifters :)

This is an extremely late response, and you may not even see it, but for whatever reason, I never saw this comment. But, thanks for the advice, I like the idea of the list making. That's a really good idea when nothing else seems worthy of writing down!
