September Journal Prompts + Facing Challenges

September 2, 2020

I’ve been reading Glennon Doyle’s new book, Untamed and have been so inspired by it! She mentions the quote, “You can do hard things”, so I wanted to focus on overcoming challenges and tapping into your own strength for this month’s journal prompts. Life is hard right now for everyone. Sure “hard” looks different for everyone but we have to admit this season of life is challenging for us all in some way or another.

Most of you know that I’m not naturally a positive thinker which isn’t the norm in our “think positive” society. It’s nice to see that we’re starting to embrace the idea that life doesn’t have to be all good, all the time. That there’s room for the challenges and that the exist for a reason.

Whether is a new season of life, a hard transition or just a hard situation, I’m trying to embrace each shift. My goal is to be as mindful as possible and lean into the hard times so the good times feel even sweeter. Hard times always bring a perspective shift for me. I realize what actually matters and life seems to boil down to the bare necessities.
