20 THINGS I’M GRATEFUL FOR

I’ve heard a million times, one of the best and easiest ways to pick yourself up is to make a list of things you’re grateful for. We are blessed everyday just to wake up. Even if you’re in good spirits and life has you feeling good, it still is a good idea to list a couple things each day that you’re grateful for. 10 WAYS TO LIVE HAPPIER A daily gratitude journal may be the best if you don’t know where to start. But I thought I’d just make a list of things I’ve been especially grateful for.

Things I’m Grateful For…

Those are 20 that I’ve been very grateful for lately. As I continue to grow I notice it’s the small things that makes me happy and keeps me going. Each day you do this some will remain constant and other things will appear on your list. Either way no matter how you’re feeling at some point in the day make a list of a minimum of 3 things you’re grateful for. As you continue to do it you’ll begin to notice you can’t stop thinking of things you’re grateful for. Happy Sunday Funday!!!!

JOURNAL WRITING: 10 QUESTIONS TO HELP YOU FIND YOURSELF

This weekend I found myself speaking with someone who was having a hard time expressing themselves. Before I knew it, I started a rapid fire of questions to help get their mind flowing with thoughts, views, and ideas. 4 WAYS TO KNOW YOU’RE ON THE PATH OF HEALING

So often we seem to make things complicated. It’s the simple and most common questions that would help us get past the starting line. If you are having trouble figuring out your next move, what you want to do next, how you’re going to figure it out, and where you’re going, then in your next journal session answer the following.

Questions To Help You Find Yourself:

  1. Am I happy in my current job/career? If the answer is yes, then what makes it joyous for you? How do you feel every day getting ready for work? What excites you about going to work everyday? If the answer is no, then what would you like to be doing? What is your dream job/career/profession?
  2. What do I like to do for fun? When was the last time I had true fun?
  3. What is a typical day in my life like?
  4. What am I passionate about?
  5. What am I good at?
  6. What is the one thing I get complimented on the most?
  7. What do I enjoy doing for others the most?
  8. What are 3 things I do very well?
  9. What is my greatest accomplishment?
  10. What keeps me up at night?

Use the above 10 questions to get your mind going on how to find yourself and move forward in the direction you’d like. If you need more guidance on how to find yourself, use this workbook https://amzn.to/3I1ETI5 “Find Your F*cking Happy: A Journal to Help Pave the Way for Positive Sh*t.”

As a reminder, take your time, be detailed, and be honest. That is the path needed to get you to your happy place. It’s not a race, it’s a journey. Only you can answer the questions. Dig deep and regain your power and happiness back.

Happy writing!!!!!

10 JOURNAL PROMPTS TO A BETTER YOU

”So tell me about yourself.” That is one question or phrase that stumps us all. We typically go to what we do for a living or what our job title is. It’s always easier to explain what we don’t like to do, what we don’t like about ourselves, or any negative thing. The journaling this week is focused on the better you. I set out on this challenge because I no longer wanted it to be a challenge for me. To do this, it’s sometimes helpful to use a guided journal or workbook to give you a boost. https://amzn.to/39qbkTJ

10 Journal Prompts To A Better You

  1. What is something good that happened to me? (Big or small)
  2. When was the last time I laughed uncontrollably? What made it funny? How did it make me feel?
  3. What was the last book I read?
  4. My favorite memory that I tell over and over again.
  5. What do I like to do for fun?
  6. I feel most comfortable in…(This could be a place, time, clothing, or anything that makes you feel comfortable.)
  7. If my friends were to describe me they would say…
  8. The one thing I can’t live without…(Use this and run with it. It could be food, a person, object, product, or anything.)
  9. My favorite movie and why?
  10. Three words to describe me and why?

Use these 10 journal prompts to help you understand you. Sometimes we do things so routinely and don’t know why. Learning the why will help us know why we gravitate towards certain things in life. From there we’re able to understand our deepest self. As always, remember there is no right or wrong way to journal. Be specific as possible. Lastly, be as honest as possible. I know being vulnerable is uncomfortable. CHANGE IS UNCOMFORTABLE But to get to being your freest self, you must do the uncomfortable thing.

Happy Writing!!!!!
