This week: Observing the world around you
View this email in your browser
Hello and welcome to newsletter #5!
This week's good reason to journal is to observe the world around you and your place in it.

Today's page prompts you to write about the things you see, touch, hear, and feel. It also prompts you to look out into the world and make observations about the stories and places that capture your attention and fill your time. These are opportunities to understand them better.

Take a moment to record the things you observe. Then, take your journaling to the next level by giving those observations meaning.

When prompted to write about a story making headlines, also consider how it connects to something you already know from your own experience. Does that change the way you understand the story?

When prompted to write about a place where you spend a lot of your time, think about the physical details of the space, but also consider how you feel while you are there. Think about the reason this place exists, perhaps the need it fills for you. Does it make you think differently about that place? Or about yourself?

The world is full of surprises and I believe that with a little careful observation, your journal will be full of surprises, too. I hope they lead you to a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the world around you and your place in it.
