Thursday Writing Prompt and a Confession

I have a writing prompt, but first, I have a confession.

I have been slacking.

It has been a really rough and crazy couple of weeks and I ended up taking an unexpected blogging break. I have been having a hard time finding things to write about. Sadly, nothing seems to inspire me. 

Maybe it is the craziness of the holidays, or the arrival of the cold weather, but I know that things need to change.

So I decided to hibernate a bit.

I did my best to turn off my brain and my running list of things that I “should” be doing.

If I started feeling overwhelmed, I used my favorite page in my bullet journal, the Brain Dump page. I made notes on things that I wanted to remember, but not deal with right at that moment. 

I took a couple naps.

I brought out my knitting needles and made a hat. Knitting also helps quiet me and gets my brain thinking productively again. 

I decorated our house for Christmas, made cookies with my friend, and snuggled up for Christmas movies with the kids. 

After taking my little self care break, I am finally starting to feel a bit better. I have a few ideas brewing in my head again, which means I will be back with more crafts and bullet journal posts soon. 

In the meantime, here is my Thursday Writing Prompt. Since I can’t take a real vacation at the moment, I will write about it instead! 

Enjoy 🙂

Thursday Journal Prompt

Writing stories or even long entries in my journal was something that I used to do often. There was even a point in my life that I wanted to be a writer. However, somewhere in my crazy life, and all the upheaval, I lost my words.
I miss that part of me.

I have been doing a pretty good job keeping up with my bullet journal the past few months, and I am loving it. But, I miss actually sitting down and just writing for myself.

I have been spending all my time writing for my blog and jotting down simple thoughts, but I am not doing much in the way of indepth writing.
In an effort to change this, and renew my love of writing, I am assigning myself a weekly journal prompt to complete. It is a small goal, and one that I should be able to achieve.

I thought that I would post the same prompt here each week. Maybe it will inspire some of my readers to write along with me.

Here is the first prompt. Be sure to come back next Thursday to find a new one!

Enjoy!
