It's all about asking good questions!

Hello fellow journalers!

Things are changing around here. I'm working on a new approach to my journal work and today I'm inviting you to join me.

As you may have noticed, journal prompts are my obsession. I write and journal them every day. I fill my paper journals and digital printables with them and, for the last month or so, I've been posting daily journal prompts on my website and social media. Here are a few recent examples:
I write journal prompts and create guided journals because I believe they can make a difference.

I believe that journaling can be a powerful tool for creating a life you love.

There is genius in this particular tool -- spoiler alert: the genius is you -- because each moment of reflection in your journal takes you one step closer to knowing yourself fully and honestly. It takes you closer to knowing what you want, what matters to you, and what your priorities are, so that you can make purposeful decisions that take into account your unique strengths and circumstances.

That is how I use my journal. I write about the interesting or poignant moments in my days, usually in point form and with as much humour as I can muster. I also write a lot about what works and what doesn't work in those moments and about the things that motivate and encourage me and the things that don't. My goal in my journal is to pay attention to my experiences and efforts, the world around me, and the people I love and admire.

Because if I'm paying attention, I can learn from those experiences, people, and events, and develop tailor-made ways to cope better, plan better, and then go out there and do better with courage and confidence.

I've found that the best way to pay attention is to ask good questions.

Lots of them. On every subject I can think of. With a positive attitude, but also without shying away from difficult or uncomfortable issues.

Good questions are the nuts and bolts of journaling. They lead to understanding, which in turn leads to purposeful action. This is both good news and bad news. The good news is that anyone can enjoy the benefits of journaling. It's quite straightforward, after all. The bad news is that there is no quick fix, no easy three-step solution for creating a life you love. It requires thoughtful inquiry and a willingness to explore and experiment.

Which is where I can help.

In the coming weeks, I'll launch a new website full of new prompts and printables that you can dive into to explore the ideas, experiences, and achievements that matter most to you. In the meantime, I'm posting a new journal prompt every day on my current website and social media. Click here (Instagram), here (Facebook), or here (Adventures in Guided Journaling) to start journaling with them today!

Best wishes and happy journaling,
Christie
