~ To acknowledge feelings

Bill was smart and tenacious. He was an amazing
father to his sons and was my mother's husband.
Through observation Bill had a positive impact on my life.
His life was short. With Bill passing too soon I
became keenly aware of how incredibly lucky I was to be alive.
As a young married mother with an unstoppable spirit, who wore many hats
while raising two children, volunteering and working, time was flying by.
I was passionate about the importance of each day and wanted to capture it.
So I created a system that quickly and easily organized how
I felt and what I was doing. With this system I could see my own growth.
At the same time my marital status changed to "head of household"
and my new creation was put on a shelf.
To support my family and earn a bachelors degree,
I intertwined three years of full time study as a
college student with a full time corporate job.
For fifteen years I built an award winning corporate career.
Today I realize that emotional health is as equally important as physical health
and that knowing how you feel will help to make better, positive decisions.
Having a history of your days will show how they
are spent and illustrate the growth within them.
A quick, easy way to acknowledge feelings, guide behavior and build a history of valuable information.
