We're going to do a guided reflection activity to help you bring the stories of yourself to the surface, and make a conscious decision about whether you agree with them and want to keep telling yourself these stories about you, or whether you want to say goodbye to these portraits of yourself, and create a new one.
There's no right or wrong answer - the purpose is to help make these narratives about yourself conscious - bring them in front of your eyes so you can see them, instead of just having them running on automatic in the background. That way, you can make an actual choice about whether or not you want to keep, edit, or toss them.
I’ve spent the past few weeks sifting through tons of blogs and articles about ways to make Halloween this year memorable, meaningful, and fun - even though 2020 is a whole bunch of bad and weird, there are still tons of ways to make this holiday special this year while staying safe. Here you'll find ten ideas for adults - picked from over 50 blogs I’ve read to choose the creme de la creme for you.
We all have people in our lives who are longer present. Perhaps they have died, perhaps the relationship came to a mutual end, perhaps there was a separation that happened gradually and that we don’t understand. Whenever a relationship ends, for whatever the reason, we create a story around both the relationship itself, and its cause for ending. I’m going to give you two ways to think through your own “Stories of the Dead” - not literally, but stories of people who are no longer in your day to day life.

In the last few years I’ve come to realize that by doing 7 simple things, I can embrace a style of journaling that actually works with my personality, with how I learn, and where I am in life...which allows me to reap the benefits of using writing to help me gain clarity and peace in my life, without all the BS of trying to create a practice for myself that isn’t sustainable, or suited to who I am. I want to share these with you!
These 30 Journal Prompts give you a provocative and intriguing, yet simple question to write about each day of the month for October, and can be used throughout October, and/or as a way to create your own Halloween ritual, as the activity for a Halloween party, or a practice to share with friends around the holiday.
Halloween, at its heart, is about one thing: the thinning of the veil between this world, and the “beyond.” As we dissolve the boundary between our everyday reality and the mystical other-world that is ever-present but to which we are normally blind, we are able to connect more easily with spirit. Mischief makers come and tinker in our world. We share stories of the dead to honor and connect with them.
We’re being asked to let go of so many things right now: Plans. Priorities. Support systems. Expectations. Some of us are actually grieving the passing of friends and family, often from afar. It’s hard to know how to let go under normal circumstances; but right now, it’s even harder.
In this blog post, we’re going to explore another side of the coin, which is how to process the grief, frustration, anxiety, and rush of other emotions that comes when we can’t plan properly, when our plans are taken from us, or when the unplanned knocks us off our feet.
You might be here because you’re feeling anxious about sending your kids back to school; you’re trying to figure out a sustainable work from home situation while your kids do virtual schooling; you’re questioning whether you made the right decision for your kid’s schooling options; or you’re processing your own feelings of disappointment, frustration, and sadness around the reality of what Back to School 2020 looks like. Whatever your reason is, you’re in good company. We are all in this together, even though everyone faces different circumstances and challenges. And, we will get through this. Together.
Fall is a time of letting go, reflecting, slowing down, and indulging your five senses with comforting and beautiful smells, tastes, sights, and sounds. These 30 Journal Prompts give you a provocative and intriguing, yet simple question to write about each day of the month.
