What a wonderful journal to discover your inner most thoughts and discover exactly what you want from life.  I have seen many books like this that promise to help you learn what you really want but this one delivers!  There are fun exercises that help you picture what you want to achieve and then help guide you on to the steps necessary.  You could even just take a few of these pages to use at a party to start conversations.  The questions to ask yourself range from lighthearted to downright gutsy but all in a fun atmosphere.  This would be the perfect gift to a high school graduate to help them find their direction.  


  1. Sounds like it would be good for *me* to help me find direction. Would make a perfect gift too. Sometimes writing really helps you organize and solidify your thoughts.

  2. Is there a movie that defines you?
    Boy, that is an interesting question. Don't know if i can answer that without some thought.


Thanks for leaving a note! I try to reply to all conversations!
