As we make our way through the year, it’s only natural to reflect on the things we’ve accomplished and the goals we still hope to achieve.

Perhaps you’ve had the opportunity to cross some items off your bucket list, whether that’s visiting a new destination, trying a new hobby, or taking a bold step in your career.

But for many, the list of unfulfilled dreams and aspirations can feel daunting. Maybe we haven’t had the time or resources to pursue our passions, or maybe we’ve been too afraid to take that first step towards something new and unfamiliar.

Take a moment to reflect on your own goals and dreams, and to consider how you might use the written word to help bring them to fruition.

Write a letter to yourself about this.
