Goals/Comfort & Joy

Danielle has been writing something every day! Now, she wants to figure out a work routine for the upcoming school year.

Gwen’s inbox is much more organized and as the week goes on and she completes more tasks, it will be all clear again. An evergreen goal (for everyone – even you!), Gwen would like to drink more water.
