Out with the old and in with the new...
As the days are more infused with the newness of Spring I invite you to activate the lightness within you through daily journaling. Consistent journaling can be a progressive way to confront discomforts and release intrusive thoughts.
I'll admit- I prefer to write than to verbally express my thoughts. When I started journaling more consistently it helped my moods a great deal. Over time my journaling practice became a Divine appointment with myself to consistently unpack.
Writing can help you discover more about yourself if you are willing to ask hard questions. At first, it can feel overwhelming but not allowing yourself to let go of old habits does not feel good to us either. Especially when we know the habits are no longer serving us.
I invite you to use the following journal prompts to invoke mindfulness as you move into this season of renewal.
Prompts are not listed in any particular order:
List something you did well today.
What would a reset look like for you?
How did you affirm someone else today?
What new skill or adventure would you attempt if you knew you could not fail at it? What is stopping you?
Think of a recent experience that affected you... Does the story you tell yourself about that feel limiting or expansive?
If your story feels limiting how can you move forward from that belief?
It was expensive what did you learn from it?
What can you do to become more self-aware on a day-to-day basis?
Have you experienced a shift in your understanding of something lately?
What does growth look like for you?
What does happiness look like for you?
Describe a time when you showed flexibility in your thinking.
Who or what motivates you?
Make a list of 5 things that you like about yourself (or are good at).
What conditions are present when you feel valued?
Who is the most influential person in your life & and why?
What experience has caused you to see things differently recently?
What did you discover about your childhood over the past year?
What are you looking forward to learning this year or season?
What action or routine do you need to create to be closer to where you want to be?
When you think about spring what is the first word that comes to mind? Create a theme or affirmation around that word for this season.
Pace yourself by working with one prompt each day or group a few together for the week. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed take a break. Remind yourself that you are safe. Take a moment to ground yourself and then come back to it. You are breaking generational curses so it may feel hard that doesn't mean that you aren't capable. You got this.
