I've always been the reflective sort--have kept diaries and journals since I was about 9. One of the best practices for my professional (and personal) growth has been reflecting on the various lessons/projects/displays/events that I plan and put on in the library. Setting down what went well and what did not along with ways I'll improve or move forward with new goals.
Also, have I mentioned I get absolutely giddy in office supply stores? That fresh journals make my heart sing? That I love perusing the back-to-school aisles?
I am so flippin' excited about my new journal. I figured this was the perfect time to start with a brand spanking new journal for my brand spanking new journey.
I've tabbed it according to my 10 goals, leaving the back half for day-to-day blurbs about whatever. I like the freedom to have both. Best of all? This little beauty was less than $5.00!
Let the new year begin!
