15 Journal Prompts to explore…

 

 

Hey Inspiring Souls!

My journal has been a support system for me for many years now. It’s an anchor of sorts. The thing about journaling is we can’t do it wrong, it’s incredibly forgiving you can write one entry and the next one can be weeks, months or years later and your journal will not judge you!

I also know that sometimes even if we feel we have a lot to say that we open to that blank page and we feel like we go blank! To help you out with that or simply give you a diving in point here are 15 journal prompts…

  1. Right now I need
  2. Right now I feel
  3. Truth
  4. What do I hear, taste, see, smell, feel?
  5. More of, less of
  6. Gratitude, describe in detail one or two things.. (so not just I am grateful for my sight.. what are you seeing that brings you gratitude about that.. why.. ) or a  simple list.. again no.wrong.way!
  7. What nourishes me
  8. What is draining me
  9. Currently loving
  10. Wins and Woes
  11. F*%K it list
  12. Things I appreciate about myself
  13. Lessons learned lately ( you define lately)
  14. Affirmations
  15. What I am resisting, yet crave.

Pondering our Distractions…

Hey Inspiring Souls!

Let’s talk about distractions! Most times they serve us in some way or another .

They come wrapped up so many ways we often don’t even realize they are occurring.

I’ve asked myself and others lately in what way their distractions are serving them. I encourage you to ask yourself the same question.

While we’re at it you I encourage you ( and myself ) to explore in what ways the distraction depleting as well.

Other things to ponder about distractions

What is distracting me?

Is this supporting how I want to show up? How I want to feel? What Is want to accomplish?

Not all distractions are bad , sometimes they are what we need for our mental health at the time.

Don’t beat yourself up, this is simply about starting to explore our distractions.

Does my environment …

Hey Lovely Souls!

With many of us spending more time at home this question feels more appropriate than ever.

Our environment affects and reflects us in ways we don’t realize.

It can drain us or support and lift us.

I encourage you to ask yourself this question and allow yourself to start shifting accordingly where it may be needed.

{Caregiver} photo prompts

Hey amazing Soul!

As a caregiver it’s easy to get consumed with all there is to do , figure out, monitor etc..

We can often feel disconnected from our creativity. Most of you likely have access to some kind of camera (I use the one on my phone all the time). I thought I would share 5 photo prompts to play around with. No fancy equipment or skill required!

1) Your loved ones hands (I feel like hands tell so many stories)

2) A picture of you and the one(s) you care for

3) Something around your home that tells a story (of your days, your life, theirs) a vase, mug, adaptive equipment, flowers or plant, books, jewelry the list could go on and on

4) feels like me ( outfit, book, quote, nature, activity etc)

5) Light and or shadows

Mid year reflection and pondering

Hey inspiring souls!
With the state of the world these days it may almost feel like there’s no point in doing a nod year check in.
I believe there is and that this time despite the unknowns can be seen as an opportunity. An opportunity to learn and to unlearn to start determining or redefining what truly matters to us.

So I will share some prompts to get you started reflecting and pondering.

What was my word or phrase of the year? How has it showed up?
What lessons or things have I learned so far this year?
How have I showed up this year?
What would I like to release? (Maybe it’s expectations or specific goals)
What matters to me?

What do I want to feel?
What do I want to create?
What do I want to savor or explore?
What opportunities are in this moment that I feel called to?
What needs tending to?

Empowered Caregiver

5 Affirmations for Caregivers- Empowered Caregiver

 

Hey Lovely Souls..

It’s likely that you are either a caregiver or know someone who is. Supporting caregivers is becoming more and more of a passion for me. So you will be seeing more of these types of posts as I go forward.

Most of us have lots of “stuff” swirling around in our heads. This can feel especially true if you are a caregiver. To do, stuff to look out for, medications, symptoms, appointments, household “stuff” the list goes on.

We can beat ourselves up for being “behind on everything” and that we should be doing more.. Being in that cycle of beating yourself up over and over is stressful, bad for you mental and physical well being.

When you find yourself going down that path (or as a “preventive”) repeat affirmations to yourself each day.

  1. I must care for myself in order to truly care for others. Caring for myself is the foundation to being a present and empowered caregiver.
  2. I am doing the best I can each day in each situation
  3. I’ve got this!
  4. I am capable of handling whatever the day presents me with (or throws at me!)
  5. Just Breathe

7 Lists for your planner (or journal)


Hey Lovely Souls

I have a thing for planners. But I am not someone who usually has the patience to sit and decorate planners thoughtfully. I found myself with an extra weekly planner that I had purchased for someone but they decided not to use it.

So I decided to use it for some lists.. Here are some ideas if you have a planner sitting around waiting to be used (though of course these could be in any notebook)

  1. Observed and Overheard (sounds, words,sights etc)
  2. More of less of
  3. Mini Journaling
  4. Brain dump
  5. Goodness and Gratitude
  6. Wins and woes
  7. AM/PM Intentions and Reflections
