Day 15 - Write a letter to your future self
Is there anything you would like to tell your future self?
Where do you want to be in the future? You can set some intentions for how you would like your life to look? Don't put expectations on how these things will come to pass. Let them go and let them manifest in their own time.
You could write about who you are now and the progress you have made with your personal growth and remind your future self who you are.
You could write about all the fantastic things that are going on in your life, your kids and what they are doing, and the quirky things about them, things you don't want to forget.
Day 16 – Write a letter to your past self
Sometimes writing a letter to your past self can have therapeutic benefits. Write to yourself at a time when things weren't going so great. Tell yourself something you needed to hear at the time, words of support and comfort, even advice. It can contribute to your healing.
Day 17 – Affirmations
Positive affirmations can be a great way to bring about a positive mindset; repeating them creates a new thinking pattern. Write these affirmations in your journal. As you change and grow, the affirmations you require will vary.
Day 18 – Creative ideas
You can use your journal as a creative outlet. Keep a record of your ideas to reflect on when you feel uninspired.
You could also create a journal for creative writing or poetry; this can be a good outlet for emotions and feelings.
Day 19 – Celebrate yourself
Don't forget to celebrate yourself, all the great things you have done to be where you are today.
Prompt: What are some of the achievements you are most proud of?
Day 20 – Grief
Journalling about your grief can be an excellent way to deal with it. Everybody deals with grief differently, and many people find it difficult to express their feelings.
Let it all out, every ugly part of it, keep your hand moving and don't stop to edit it, release the feelings, be honest to yourself, and burn it if you must.
Day 21 – Curiosities
We all wonder about things sometimes, and writing about them in your journal is a safe place to express these. Research them and write about what you find, what resonates with you, and what doesn't. Enjoy the learning journey; expanding your mind is always good.
