Journal Prompts: Loving Your Present

Before I give you the prompts, I want to touch base on why journaling is so important!  If you’re interested in a more in-depth blog on this, click here. 

  1. It helps you process.  It can give you a deeper understanding and gives you a clear understanding of what’s at hand.  This is important for those crazy emotions! (And if you need some guidance on accepting your emotions click here.)

  2. It helps you de-stress.  Writing in a journal is like talking to a bestie.  They just don’t talk back and sometimes we need that!  Plus, the self-care/self-love aspect is an added bonus.

  3. It helps you stay grounded.  Meaning you won’t just freak out, at a moment’s notice, because you have something to help you cope.

These are just some of the reasons to journal.  You might have your own.

Before I give you the prompts, let’s talk loving your present.  Sometimes we spend so much of our day in our heads we don’t take a moment to enjoy ourselves, enjoy the moment, or feel we have a reason to enjoy our present.  Everything seems to be set up to dwell in the past or pray for a better future.  But if you can take a moment and enjoy something about the present everything can be considered a blessing.  These prompts are designed to help you see how you can enjoy the moment and not dwell in the past and only live for the future.
