It is a keepsake, a source of inspiration, a repository of wisdom and hard won experience, a record of growth and development, and -- for me this key -- a tool for positive action. Over time, my approach to writing journal prompts has evolved, I hope, to encompass each of these things -- along with a few surprises here and there when the mood strikes! Journaling has been, and continues to be, a tremendously useful tool for my own growth and development and, as always, I'm eager to share my thoughts and journal prompts with you. It's been a while since I've written regularly in this space and I'd like to spend more time here.

So, for the next several weeks, to give myself a new writing challenge and to give you an opportunity to visit and share your thoughts on journaling, I'll be posting a series of prompt-a-day printable journal pages. You can download this week's prompt-a-day journal pages here or by clicking on the photo above. Best wishes and happy journaling!
