Years ago, I gathered up hundreds of journal prompts and put them on labels and into a cute little box for my “Discovery Journal Prompts”. I would then, put my hand into the box and pull out a label at random and that would be the perfect prompt for me for that particular day. Great plans, right???
I haven’t done a thing with them since…until today! Welcome to my Discovery Journal Prompt debut!
These are not necessarily emotionally hard prompts to answer, they’re more journal prompts to get you to go inside and think about yourself–memories, wants, whatever. Not sure how many are going to follow along, but you’re more than welcome, if you wish. My intention is to do one prompt each Monday.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. – Helen Keller
What closed door do you keep staring at?
My first thought was “sh**t, why did I have to pick that one!!!” But…it is a recurring theme in my life. I know that I am doing or keeping things in my life that are not supportive of my BEST SELF, so…grab the bull by the horns and let’s discuss.
So…even more interesting…I had written a lot about the closed door of love but, when I read back over all that I had written, what came to me is not that I keep looking at the “love” door that has closed but…that I keep looking at the closed door of my PAST and not looking enough towards my open door of happiness that is my future or, better yet, my present time!!! How’s that for a breakthrough???
I tried to keep the words that I had written but do a cross out text on them but as I was working on that, I accidentally deleted them…so…that also says to me, that I need to let go of the story of my past–and quit claiming it as mine. I do not wish to be the story or stories of my past any longer. I’m done with it!!!
Imagine girl jumping up and down, raising her arms in triumph to the ceiling (raising the ceiling). Yay!!!
