When you open Day One each day, you can see a notification at the top of the Timeline of entries you have On This Day in years past. Tap it to view these entries. On This Day includes entries from the current day as well.

If this notification is dismissed, On This Day entries can be accessed by going to the Journal Drawer and choosing On This Day.

You can access entries from any date as well using the Calendar view and the new Today view. Long-press any date in the Calendar to see options for On This Day.

Tap any date in Calendar to open the Today view. On This Day is at the bottom of the Today view.
