200 Day Journal- Prompt 73

I am not sure what has brought you here today…here being here to my corner of cyberspace, or here- to this moment of now, however it is currnetly defined in the place you are. Maybe you are looking for something, perhaps you are curious, or maybe you are frustrated with the current state of affairs as you see them. Whatever brings you here at this moment, I think you will appreciate the prompt…however you choose to respond to it!

Prompt 73: Some Days Ya Gotta

List it or love it. Either way, enjoy where this prompt takes you.

Option 1- List: Set a timer for 5 minutes Write down the sentence, or topic, “Some days ya gotta” , and list all of the things you can think of in list form until the timer goes…try to write as fast as you can without thinking too much about it. It’s ok if random things, or fragemented sentences come, just keep ’em coming!

After you have your list or the timer goes off, read throuh and choose one line to elaborate and set the timer for 7-10 minutes and springboard off anything that came from that list.

Option 2 – Love it: Write your best sage wisdom to share. Some days ya gotta… think about what lesson you have learned recently or a theme that runs through your life which has caused you to grow, learn and stretch yourself. What lessons worth sharing?

Or write about a time you wish someone would have told you something- or offered their sage advice to you but didn’t. Would you have listened? Would it have mattered? Write the whys and why nots as you look back and see if there is anything relevent to bring forward in the days ahead and be sure and pay attention in case it comes up!

Or write about a time you rejected someone’s advice and a) it’s a good thing you did or b) you regretted it.

Speaking of journaling, I thought I would end today with a quote to write into your journal or to reflect on further as you consider your own reasons for journaling:

Journal quote of the day: “I don’t journal to ‘be productive.’ I don’t do it to find great ideas or to put down prose I can later publish. The pages aren’t intended for anyone but me. It’s the most cost-effective therapy I’ve ever found.” Tim Ferriss
