Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.

I had this thought.. part of being intentional is going back and seeing what went wrong and working on it. So, that’s what I’m doing– with the intent of helping YOU do the same thing. 🙂

I looked up some questions for prompts, journaled for nearly 2 hours (totally lost track of time!) + then chose a handful to put here to start you off on recapping this first month of 2018.

Don’t worry– this post is NOT me typing up my two hour journaling session– which to be completely honest was a lot of me writing a letter to God– but I did answer the questions I list here myself to get your wheel spinning!
