Twelve Months of Journal Prompts can take you through the year. Try these suggestions, and see where they take you. January through December, you are not alone. Download.
As you work, remember to take time to look back at past entries to get a look at how things have changed or how you've grown. Journaling can be so helpful on the grief journey.
Here are a few ways to use your journal:
*write a letter to your loved one
*describe the day or week's best and worst moments
*talk to yourself in a place of safety
*list problems you're facing and different ways you could handle each
*make some goals and write down small steps that can help you reach them
*write down things that helped, even a little, and refer to those when you need them
*make a list of people who can help if you are in crisis and add phone numbers
What kind of journal supplies speak to you? Something fancy from the bookstore? A plain spiral notebook? Some good pens? Keep them ready to use.
Way for Hope
My name is Jan McDaniel. I speak grief. I also speak peace and healing. I started A Way for Hope blog and website to house projects I create that might help others who are grieving. The blog has expanded to include guest posts by my dear friends and fellow survivors who wanted to speak hope for others, too.
We understand how difficult losing someone you love is. We know how much it means to hear from others further along on this journey and how it is possible to live a life of happiness and joy even while still remembering and honoring those we love.
