Do you keep a diary? I do. I've been writing in journals on and off since I was 8. I find it therapeutic - a safe outlet for my crazy to come out to. Recently though, I've learned to appreciate keeping a diary a little more, and not only for the chance to have a good laugh over my cringeworthy, teenaged entries.
I've found that it's a good gauge to see how much I have grown and matured in as little as a year. It's also amusing to see the changes in my way of thinking - apparently 3 years ago I had thought that learning to walk properly in stilettos is something that belongs in a bucketlist. Hmmm.
If you do keep a diary, have a look at what you had written the previous year. Compare how you're feeling now to last year. Can you tell how much you have grown or changed? If not, can you see which areas in your life need change?
