Journal Prompts for 2019

Journaling has become one of my outlets as of lately.  I am hoping that I can keep it up as we head off into 2019.  I am the worst at keeping my blog up to date but for 2019 I am setting a goal to make one post each week and more if I can.  If I can get 52 posts in the year that will be the most that I have ever done.  Eventually I would like to get something up and online each day.

In scrolling through Twitter today I saw a post that took me to a blog that I do not read or have ever heard of.  The title of the post was 19 Daily Journal Prompts that Will Change the Way You Begin 2019. I have included the link so you can read the entire post.  It was a good read.

I am posting these 19 prompts to remind me of ideas to write about.

#1: What’s one hard lesson you’re grateful life taught you in the past year?
#2: What’s something you’ve moved on from that once meant the world to you?  And, what’s something you love today that you never even knew you needed in your life?
#3: What’s one unchangeable reality you’re still holding on to and resisting?  What can you do right now to ease your mind into the acceptance of this reality?
#4: Who would you be, and what else would you see about your present life situation, if you removed the thought that’s been worrying you?
#5: How has your daily environment been affecting you recently?
#6: What’s one small example of how you have “customized” your life for the better?
#7: What have your actions over the past year been saying about how you prioritize your personal growth?  What kind of silent progress would you like to make in your life by the end of 2019?
#8: What’s one distraction that has been getting the best of you lately?  Why?
#9: What truly DOES matter to you most right now?
#10: What’s one small risk you believe is worth taking in 2019?  What’s the first step?
#11: What’s something big you’ve accomplished in the past that once seemed impossible?
#12: Why are you ready to level-up in 2019?  Why are you ready to make positive changes?  Why is the journey in front of you worth the extra effort?
#13: How can you give yourself a little extra time and space to make the right decisions on a daily basis?
#14: What’s one thing you would do differently if you knew no one would judge you?
#15: What’s one good, recent example of someone with a negative attitude completely misjudging you?  How did you handle it, and what did you learn?
#16: Who was the last person who was unexpectedly kind to you?  What can you easily do to be a little kinder than usual today, and beyond?
#17: What makes your significant other (or someone else you love) truly beautiful on the inside?  What make YOU truly beautiful on the inside?
#18: What’s something true about yourself that you need to embrace more openly and lovingly in the year ahead?
#19: What does “a new beginning” mean to you right now?

 

Week 1

Our first full week is now complete.  I am astonished on how smooth it has been this year.  We have had some very large changes in the building that usually lend themselves to causing complications until a system gets put in place to help it run.

This year we are implementing a new students information system district-wide, changing from semesters to trimesters, and some large safety changes.  These are all large changes that would normally cause issues as you roll them out, but so far this year there has been very little disruption to the learning process in the school.

It is going to be a great year!  Having a positive outlook on your work will bring nothing but positivity to those around you.  Even if you have negative people around you, they will not last long to the positivity.
