I’m actually writing this on the 20th because I plan to disconnect tomorrow and spend the day outdoors writing with pen and paper. I know writing longhand exercises a different part of the brain but my birthday is the only time all year I don’t use a keyboard because my brain moves much faster than my hands.
I have an agenda for my birthday journaling. I ask myself a set of questions about the past year and I set intentions for the year ahead. I also write to some exercises from a course I facilitate called “Designing a Regret-Free Life”.
Every year on my birthday, I ask myself these two questions:
1.If I could receive one non-monetary gift, what would it be?
2. If I could give one non-monetary gift, what what it be?
Answering those two questions tells me a lot about what is really important to me.
I don’t have an in-person “Designing a Regret-Free Life” on my 2017 schedule so if you’d like to see more of the writing prompts you can access them below.
