Writers Club: December
Apologies for the radio silence. We’ve been on a sweet hiatus, leading retreats + trainings in the Panamanian jungle. NBD. We took some time to catch our breath, and it felt good to press pause; to reflect on events and take pride in slowing down.
It’s all too easy to speed up things, to not take the time to appreciate our experience and what has come to be. How often do you find the space to congratulate yourselves on what you have achieved? Yet, how easy is it to constantly offer gratitude and pride to those around you; to compare their successes with your own.
For this month's journal prompt we ask: what are you proud of most, right now? Search deep within; look at what you have achieved, no matter how big or small it might feel to you. It could be celebrating getting through a hard test, standing up for what you believe in, saying no when you felt it in your body or for staying true to yourself during a challenging situation. Let this be all about what you have accomplished.
And if you’re looking for some soundtrack vibes to accompany some late nite, candlelit journaling, we’re hyping up Jacob Banks. Take a listen to Slow Up; it’s lit.
You can submit your piece below if you have it typed up, or snap a photo of it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, just be sure we can read it all. You choose whether you want author cred or if you’d rather submit anonymously. Just be sure to send it through before December 31st.
