Learning takes place over time as there is no magic fairy dust to give us wisdom once it is sprinkled on. Most humans don't take the time to capture their daily lessons, as their lives are a race to the eventual finish line. I happen to be a "serial journaler" who has recorded the daily highlights and lowlights of the past 25 years of my personal and professional life. My daily journals are a permanent record of my successes, failures, beliefs and behaviors which are sometimes very painful but always thought provoking, as well as a continuous reminder of the journey I'm taking. These entries detail my growth over time and remind me that, above all, I'm human which is a thought many lose in the praise they receive for their triumphs.
