It’s been a while since I wrote in a journal. It seems like something I abandoned in grade school. As I transitioned from childhood to the teenage years and now finally into adulthood I was so focused on preparing for the future that I have forgotten to live in the present. Life was set into motion full speed ahead. I didn’t take the time to reflect on the past and appreciate the present, because like they say its a gift. Hopefully, this journal will help me put life into perspective, slow down time-even if only for a moment. It may not make absolute sense some days, but I will try my best to keep up with it. I believe if I can last at least last 365 days I will be able to look back and see some type of growth. Wish me the best of luck!
