#NewYearNewYear My Goal for Janurary


At the start of the year  we all make resolutions MANY so unrealistic we brake them after the first week. So I set one to try out "NEW TO ME" things once a month. I had this >> post  open for ideals (still feel free to add ) I got a few that I might have to try along with some of the ideals I already had.

One reader suggested journaling-- while it's not totally NEW  because I kept a journal as a teen--that was a lifetime ago!  I was planing on keeping a food journal. It is something I did before; I found taking the time to SEE what I'm putting into my body is a good motivator for me to CHANGE what goes in.



Keeping a journal for other random thoughts or following prompts never really crossed my mind. I first had to go out and find some cute  journals--NOT a hard task at all-narrowing it down to just two for now that was the struggle! 





Keeping a journal you can write about ANYTHING!! Here are a few prompts I found that I'm going to try out!

  • Write a thank you note to a friend who gave you onion and garlic-flavored chewing gum. journal writing prompts
  • Draw an imaginary constellation. Write a story such as ancient people might have told about it. 
  •  Describe a real made-up dream or nightmare. 
  •  If you had to escort a visitor from outer space for a 30-minute tour of your community, where would you begin and end? 
  •   Be a grape that becomes a raisin: describe how it feels to shrink, to shrivel, to become dry and wrinkled. 
  • My favorite way to spend the day is…

  • If I could talk to my teenage self, the one thing I would say is…
  • The two moments I’ll never forget in my life are… Describe them in great detail, and what makes them so unforgettable.
  • Make a list of 30 things that make you smile.
  • Robert Frost write a poem titled The Road Not Taken.  Name a road you’ve always wanted to travel.  Where do you hope it takes you, and what might you see on the way?
  • Name one thing you always wanted to do, but haven’t.  What has prevented you from doing it?
  • Write about your first kiss.  Was it everything you wished or hoped it would be?
  • What was the worst mistake or decision you have ever made in life?  What could you have done differently?
  • What song was stuck in your head recently, and what were you doing at the time that made you think of it?
  • Describe 5 things you want to see or do before it’s too late.


The topics are endless. I hope  to keep this resolution- it can really be fun and will facilitate personal growth I'm sure.  Do you/would you keep a journal?

  1. I don't keep a journal, nothing handwritten since my diary when I was a child. My Mom kept a food journal when she was tracking calories and she swore by it.

  2. I know a few people who really enjoy journaling, so I think that sounds like an awesome goal.

  3. My goal for the year is to not buy any toys or books for my kiddos. We have too many toys and can get any toy we want from the library.

  4. My goal for the year is to keep the cluttter down. We just downsized and it felt so good to purge for the move and have kept getting rid of things too.

    1. I did a week of some de-clutter---one other NEW thing I'm working toward is a FAMILY COMMAND CENTER that will help a lot I'm sure!

  5. I could never keep up with journals. Blogs have always been easier to write. Good luck with it!

    1. I think a lot of people have turned to blogging as a journal-- but because my blog is for the most part reviews -I think having something handwritten is a good thing to try.

    1. I think a travel journal would be a great thing to start---but of course I have to get out of town more then once every two years =D

  9. I love journals, but I don't really buy one. I just use the freebies I get from companies or find printables online.

    1. I have seen some cute printable ones too, but I though putting out a few bucks would motivate me a little more to make it worth my money =)
