Journal Prompt #1

Today's prompt focuses on the present. I believe the most effective prompts are expressive, so I typically will focus on expressive writing. Dig deep, pull not just details, but emotions, feelings and impact.

For at least 20 minutes....just write. Don't worry about grammar or punctuation. Just write!

Prompt: What about today gives you joy or excitement?

Starter (use if needed): Today I am/will/did _______________. My heart is full because _________. I have been praying/hoping for ________.

Probing questions:

How does the today make you feel?

Have you been hoping for this to happen?

Is anyone else involved? How does having them involved make you feel?

Where did it happen? What did it mean?

What is the weather like? How does it make you feel?

Why is today special?

What are the details around this joy?

In peace ~C

I am not a therapist or physician. Mental health challenges are real. There is no shame in seeking help. Reach out to experts if you need them because you are loved and valued.
