In recent years, I’ve started to realize how much we miss out on just being present. And how much we forget to celebrate our own journeys, or enshrine those moments of achievement or happiness that come with doing something fulfilling. So I started this exercise to just jot down a few things each week that made an impact on me in some way. I hope to go back and back-fill the past when I get time! πŸŽ‰
