Word Prompt: NOURISH
The word that comes to mind when thinking of a focus on wintertime journaling is the word nourish. Just like our animal cousins who spend the winter hibernating, we too can spend time this season nourishing our body, mind, and spirit.
Nourishing, nourishment is not limited to food or drink. You could consider exercise or movement as nourishment. You could consider knowledge (like a training class, or working with a mentor) as nourishment.
Also, think of plants. They are nourished both from above, by the sun, and below, by the earth. You can receive nourishment in many directions. And you can give nourishment to others, too!
Question Prompt: How can I radiate warmth?
A long time ago I heard someone ask Oprah Winfrey what she wished she’d learned earlier in life. (When the master of all interviews gets asked a good question, I listen.) She said, “I wish I’d known how to distinguish radiators from drains.” Then she elaborated that “radiators” are people who give out warmth: kindness, love, honesty, positivity, energy, enthusiasm. “Drains” are people who basically take away warmth: negativity, downbeat, suck the energy out of others, hatred, distrust.
How can you be more of a radiator? What would it look like if your life was more radiant?
