This post is part of my do that thing series. For previous updates, in handy reverse chronological order, click here.
First off, thank you so much for your comments on yesterday's post. You have always made me feel like I can achieve anything here, even when I don't always believe it myself. Sharing this space with you means the world to me.
There is so much that I would like for this journal (and those to come . . .) to be. I'd like it to be a super-quick, easy-peasy, no pressure, fill-in-the-blanks space for you to record the ups and downs of your day-to-day. Because those little details are so important; they both shape and reflect who we are and where we are headed. (And later, it's so much fun to look back at these snapshots in time.)
I'd also like these journals to be a place where you can confide in yourself. A place where you can put your big thoughts, your scary thoughts, your wild dreams into writing. Even if you're not ready to pursue them or share them with others just yet. A place to work out your ideas and questions, in just a few words, here and there, when you have a sec to write them down. A place to hatch your goals and keep track of them.
One thing I definitely wanted to add was a new category of prompts directed toward goal-setting. Goal-achieving, too, for that matter. I decided to call it Big Ticket Items. And there's an extra, qualifying thought lurking in the subtitle: In this space, nothing is impossible. Because wouldn't it be nice to have another way to remind yourself that yes, you can do that thing and to have a quick spot to record the steps along the way?
