Once that’s done, they can then turn their attention to how they impact their world. It shows them in a very subtle way, how to be confident.

The other day, I had a Grammy-Granddaughter date with my eldest, Alex who is 8. On our way to see a movie, we were in the car with no music or any other distractions. It was the perfect opportunity to catch up with each other and just talk together. At one point, I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She thought about it for a few minutes, then asked me if she could only be one thing when she grows up. Of course, I told her no, that she can be anything she wants to be. And if she wants to be more than one thing, that’s perfectly acceptable.

She said, “Great! I want to be a cook like Granddad, a singer and an artist.”

I love that she has big dreams and is open to any and all possibilities. I want to instill this mindset in all my grandchildren. I believe that this self-reflection journal will help to do just that. But right now, Alex is the only one old enough to get the benefits of a journal like this. So, she will be getting this along with the “My Gratitude and Dream Journal” another award winning diary by the same authors.

If you have a young girl between the ages of 8 – 15, that loves to write in their diaries, this is the perfect gift idea for them. I am sure my granddaughter will truly love this diary.
