Journaling Time!

Had a GREAT 4 hours at Shandra's house helping her organize her scrapbook stuff. Is she on restrictions from buying certain items HECK YA!! Ladies her garage sale pile was growing and growing!

Will have pics of Carlee's birthday as soon as I figure out where she stored them!

Here is some journaling..I am doing a bit here and there so I can reflect so keep checking back and post that you read this.


1. List 10 rules you have broken. Why did you break them? Were there any negative consequences? positive consequences? 
Need time on this one.

2. Think of the place that you consider to be home, even if you don't live there anymore. Why is that place "home"?
My parents house. No matter what its just a safety; relaxing place for me 

3. What experience have you had that inspired you the most?
Surviving a divorce and never thinking I understood LOVE but I was blessed.
Breaking my elbow; pretty humbling when EVERYONE has to help you do little things like, pee, bathe, learning to do things with your hand that wasnt the one you were dominant with.


In honor of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, here are today's prompts:

1. "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

Write about a time that you did not remain silent about something that mattered.

2. "Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."

Write about a time you served someone. A time when you felt your soul "generated by love."

3. "I have a dream that one day... little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

Do you remember being aware of race when you were a child? Did you have friends of another race? If not, do you remember the first time you did?



Today's theme is "fun". Since it's icy and cold and awful outside my window I could use some fun.

1. In which season do you have the most fun? Summer Write about some things you do for fun, and the people you do them with.

2. Describe a time you had fun with a child. Was the child older or younger? Do you think children are more fun when they are younger or when they are older?

3. Do you play video games? NO!
Do you play any MMORPGs? If so, why do you like them? What appeals to you about the "society" of gaming? If you play an MMORPG, do you have a "family" in the game?



Since I'm still wanting to escape from the icy winter conditions we have here, today's theme is "escape" and "travel."

1. What are some of the oddest things you've ever eaten? What were the circumstances? Where were you? Who was with you?

2. Write about the most exotic place you've visited. Remember the weather, the smells, the sounds...Is there one event from that trip that stands out above all others?

3. If money were no object where would you go on your dream vacation? Would you go alone? If not, who would go with you? Why is this the dream vacation? What is it about this place that draws you there?



Today's theme is "people."

1. If you could have dinner with someone currently alive who would that be? Why did you chose this person?

2. Write about someone you believe is a true hero. Why do you feel that way? Does this person fit into the "traditional" definition of "hero" or is it something else?

3. Think back on the past five years. Who has helped you grow the most? Define "grow" how you want -- emotionally, spiritually, professionally...



No particular theme today since I have to go to work early. I took these from Journal Prompts

1. Write about what someone would see in your closet right now. [this one jumped out at me because I started cleaning my closet yesterday... oy!]
Clothes; shoes; purses; pedicure stuffs and boxes with treasures

2. What personality types drive you crazy? Why do you think they do?

3. Name five moments in your life so far that you believe you will remember happily in your old age.
