I just purchased a 5 year diary in the hopes that I can capture the next 5 years of my twenties and remember all the important moments.
Those closest to me will attest that my memory is famously poor, and I hope that this diary will allow me to be mindful and present in the next chapter of my life.
I wish to be mindful about my next career steps, future family planning, moving states, and investing in my friendships.
I get the feeling that my early twenties lacked a bit of mindfulness about who I wanted to be, because my college years moved at such a fast pace.
Did you ever feel that way, like the car you were in was moving too fast but you were just gripping onto that steering wheel as hard as you could?
I’ve been writing a personal essay in Career Counseling class to sum up my career plans, which I’ve found near impossible to do.
I have high hopes for a diary that shows 5 entries for each day of the year, and allows me to see where I was in life the year before, two years before, and five years before. It’s a concrete tool to sum up my personal progress. I’m excited to give it a try!
How do you stay mindful in your successes and failures each year?
What kind of tools do you use to remember all the important moments of life?
