Try This

There are many different types of writing prompts to help you to begin writing.

Pictures can be very effective prompts.

The Burdick Mystery is a fun way to use pictures.

Google the Burdick pictures to get the story - it's interesting and adds some intrigue. 

Letters To Santa

Even as a grown adult you can benefit from writing your letters to Santa.

This is the perfect way to plan out how you would like to set up your new year.

What do you want to bring into your new year?  Make a list, check it twice.  Make your list positive and nice.

November is the perfect month to focus on gratitude. 

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. 

I love being with my family, eating a wonderful meal (thank you Aunt Millie) and just laughing for hours.  I truly give thanks for these moments in my life.

Gratitude is a wonderfully high vibration AND gratitude can lift your mood and assist in manifesting great things in your life.

Try this:

Make Thanksgiving everyday! 

Everyday write down your gratitudes.

Choose a journal

     This can be anything from a composition book to a beautifully bound journal

Choose a time

  •      Pick a time that works best for you daily. 
  •      Before bed, Start of your day, Lunch time

Choose your form

  • You can write out sentences
  • You can make lists


Try to make it a wonderful time of your day.  Have a nice calming tea and find a tranquil space.  Be mindful while writing your gratitudes and feel the joy of the thankful moments. Just write.

Key - If you are having a very hard day and it is very difficult to find anything to be grateful for - do not struggle and reach so far for an answer.

Keep it simple 

Thankful for the:

  • Air breathed easily into your lungs.
  • Food in your belly.
  • Bed you sleep in

For if you have those things, you have more than a lot of people.


​Here is an example of my Grateful List


Italian Ices

The sound of my children laughing

The sky during an amazing sunset

Hot tea on a rainy night

The perfect essential oil to match my mood

Date night

Watching my girls bake cookies together

Bday parties at my parents house

Left - right - center with my family and friends - especially when I win

  • What does this remind you of?
