(week 12 prompt)

Good morning, Friends. As promised, here is your Week 12 journal prompt. Today, I would like you to think back to the last time you were at a crossroads in your life. Perhaps you are at one now. Often a daunting question looms heavy: “How do I know which is the right path to take?”

We want to know that when we get where we are going, that it will actually be somewhere we want to be. We try weighing our options, talking to friends and family, and if we are serious enough about wanting a reliable result, we may even hire a coach to help us arrive at the solution that aligns most perfectly with our goals and strengths.

These options are all well and good, but we would be short-changing the process if we didn’t take a few moments to journal about the issue. Because journaling uses a different part of our brain than thinking and talking, we can often discover original insight into questions that would have otherwise remained lost to us.

Today while journaling: write from a space of friendly curiosity; look for aspects of your response that surprise you; set a timer for a comfortable amount of time, then keep writing until the timer goes off. That’s it!
