Welcome to another edition of Journal Circle!
A number of readers last month expressed interest in another journaling challenge. Let me tell you ... I think it is a great idea because my journaling has been close to nonexistent this last month! However, let's change it up a little this month. This time, I will not be providing you with a list of prompts. Instead, let's go with something short and sweet, yet helps keep us each a little accountable. You can incorporate this idea into your longer journal entries, or stick with the simplicity. It's up to you! What is this idea, you ask.
Each day, write one word, one phrase, or one sentence of something that you are thankful for. We should have enough time in our days to take two minutes to remember what we appreciate and record it, right? Maybe you can record it in list format in your journal. Maybe you want to print off a calendar to slip into your journal. Or, maybe you want to transcribe it right there on your calendar itself, so you can see it every single day. Wherever or however you decide to write it is the right way for you!
Personally, I'm hoping that this will help me in establishing a routine to record something EVERY day because this is simply something that I have a difficult time with, especially with so much on my plate these days. I need to take those few minutes every day to let the stress be overshadowed by the good stuff, to remind me what is right with the world. I challenge you to do the same! It may be EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. but it is something SMALL every. single. day.
Who's with me? Who wants to remind themselves every single day of the positive in their life?
