100 Days of Journal Prompts: Day 63

Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.

You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!

One thing people don’t know about me is…

It’s been a while since I’ve done an introductory post, but I thought I’d put a fun spin on it today!

I share confessions all of the time! So this is tricky πŸ˜….

But here’s one.

Last week, I watched my baby hold another baby. And I thought, I want to have more kids!

Only… I’m also terrified because of how difficult my last pregnancy was and the postpartum anxiety afterward. I’m still trying to get my physical and emotional habits to a place that I feel good about.

And the work I do here with you started as a hobby, but it’s starting to make a noticeable difference!

The other day I did something I would have never done before. I attended a songwriting workshop and shared a song I wrote. It was horrifying. Putting music on social media is one thing (because I can always take it back πŸ˜‚). But being with a room full of professionals is definitely intimidating. I actually had a nightmare about it the day before.

And I still showed up!

I can also turn a bad day around lightning-fast these days. I know exactly what I need.

  • If I’m feeling unproductive, my magic formula is: sweat, get outside, and read with my kiddos.
  • If I’m feeling sad? Popcorn and a family movie!
  • Stressed? Do my future self a favor and check something off of the to-do list + me-time.
  • If I’m feeling passionate about something, I write, and talk about it with people that I trust.
  • If I make a choice that doesn’t align with my goals, I keep trying.

Did it take me three whole years to figure all of this out? Absolutely. And it’s tailored to me. Your “magic formula” might look different.

But that’s what we’re all about here. Figuring out who you want to be and what works for you. And hopefully lots of transparency and grace along the way πŸ˜‰.

Is there something about you that people wouldn’t normally guess?

  1. Way to go!!! It’s so hard to put yourself out there like that, but doesn’t it feel amazing after you finally did it?
    Something people might not know about me – I’m terrified of water pipes. I know – weird! LOL

    1. I’m sorry you have to go through that. With my anxiety, it’s something that never goes away. I’m always working on it, even as it gets better. I’m glad you are in a good place now, keep fighting the good fight!
