When I was in high school, I took a class specifically on journaling and it was So Much Fun. Or at least it was for me since I’m a writer. But I suspect it will be fun for you too. Because everyone likes taking inventory of the little things and the big things, right? I haven’t kept a journal–other than a log of my yoga practice–since my son was born 15 years ago :). So when I stumbled upon the 52 Lists Project book, a year of weekly journaling inspiration by Moorea Seal, I thought it would be one way to inspire both me and you, dear reader, to reflect.
This week’s list:
List the Difficult Moments in Your Past That Have Shaped You For the Better
- When our son was small, my husband worked out of state in two week stretches for a couple of years. Two weeks away then home for a weekend and so on and so forth. I learned how to ask for help.
- This winter I was diagnosed with an invasive squamous carcinoma on my scalp, which required surgery and a full skin graft. I learned how much I love life. I learned to listen to my intuition. I learned I am not invincible.
