A little excerpt from my 2019 reflection in 2020 My Shining Year Life Goals Workbook by @leonie_dawson .
This is my third year spending January writing life goals in one of her workbooks instead of a resolution. I love it.
I also love Nouarie’s smiley face. She had so many firsts this year, but it’s all kinda a blur. A few of you warned me this would happen while pregnant and after the birth of baby number two.
I used to keep a daily journal. I fell behind in it and gave up. I keep telling myself I’m catch it up. Maybe I’ll jump back in. Maybe I’ll sit and go through my stories and catch it up. It’s important. Maybe I’ll set aside time for it.
Anyone else feel like you just want the world to pause long enough for you to capture a time capsule?
