The Longest Journey

Sometime in your life you will go on a journey.
It will be the longest journey you have ever taken.
It is the journey to find yourself.
Katherine Sharp

We will be taking that journey together through our journaling. All of our lives we have been influenced by people, media and culture telling us what we should be, how we should act and what we should love.

Are you doing what you are called or made to do or what you have been influenced to think you should be doing?

We have all had at least on REALLY BAD teacher. The one that snarls all the time, is critical and whose classroom you dread to enter. Or we have had the doctor or nurse that seems to have zero compassion.

They are just a couple examples of what I believe are people doing what they think they should do and not what they were called to do. There is no way they can be passionate about what they are doing and act that way.

Our prompt today is to write down things we LOVE to do.ALL things not just the ones that you think are impressive or that you think others would approve. Don't worry if your mom thinks reading fiction is a waste of time. If you really love to do it (and do it in secret) write it down anyway. You get the idea! Don't think about it too much..just free flow write.

We will be working on this through Friday so we will take it in three steps. The prompt I just gave you is prompt number one!

Have a fantastic day!

Sending Love,
