If you are like me-you sit down to journal, but you don't think you have anything interesting to journal about. I am going to start what I will call promptings. Journal prompts to help you get started. Usually once I start writing, I realize that I actually have a lot to journal about!
Here is something basic:

Write down 5 things that you are thankful for and why.

I will start:
1. I am sooo thankful for our house. I just love it. Even though we've been here a little over a year, I still get excited about it like the first time we saw it! I love looking around at all the changes that we've made and how we've personalized it. I also love seeing Daves {my husband} handiwork all over. My favorite time in our house is early morning, when it is still dawn and I am the only one up. Coffee in hand I love to just reflect-and be.

2. I am thankful for cooler days in the summer. Who doesn't love a break from 80-90 degree weather? It makes me long for Fall and the new beginning it brings!

3. I am thankful for my sisters! I cannot imagine my life without them. They are my best friends!

4. I am thankful for the joy it brings me when Preston calls me "mama." I just love it!

5. I am thankful for books. I love a good read! {is that nerdy? oh, well. I don't care!}

When all else fails, and you feel stuck-just start writing down what you are thankful for and reflect on the blessings you do have. I tend to be a pessimist, {ughh...I hate writing that, but it's true!} so focusing on the positives really changes my mindset and mood, it steers me in the right direction if you will.

Happy journaling!
