For the sake of . . .

jan pen ink for web Every day we make sacrifices or choices for the sake of someone or something else. Write about a time when you did something for the sake of another. Perhaps you recycle for the sake of the planet. Perhaps you donate money for the sake of helping those in need. Write in detail about what you do for the sake of, including your philosophy, the act of doing, what it costs you, and anything else involved in your choice.

Silence

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 12:58 pm

answers What answers does silence give you? What questions about life do you ask in silence? Do you welcome silence or avoid it? Silence allows me to have the best relationship with my self. In silence I can hear my own heartbeat, my thoughts, my wishes, my regrets, my desires, and determine how I want to live my life. I seek silence. When I need more, I make a date with myself and step away from people. Years ago I knew a man who couldn’t stand silence. When he was alone in the house he had the TV, radio, and all the lights on. He seemed to want to run away from his inner silence. I couldn’t imagine living like that. Do you live like that?

Grown Up

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 12:35 pm

Fitting Dads Shoes Kids like dressing up in their parent’s clothes. When I was about 6, my mother had a pair of butterscotch-colored high heel shoes that I loved clacking around the apartment in. What clothes, of your parents, did you like wearing? How did they make you feel?

Love

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 12:44 pm

PrintLove is a complicated emotion. Some say love isn’t an emotion; it is an action. When I think of love I think of an emotional place of goodness and wholeness. I think of a place of trust and stability but that is not how most people live love. Certainly I haven’t lived love the way I think it is. Love has been fickle, unstable, unmanageable, infuriating, and embracing. Love is so many things. Poets have been trying to capture its definition and essence for centuries. What is yours? Write about the love you have given and the love you have received. Write about its nature and your longing for it. Write about your experience of it.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Hair

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 1:55 pm

Girl Brushing Hair Remember all the hair styles you had over the years? Both sexes adventured into displaying their hair in all sorts of styles, colors, and fashions. What were some of the styles you had? How did you feel when you got the style ‘just right’ or had a bad hair day?
