We’re nearly halfway through the year and many of us have had a lot of time inside allowing us to deal with emotions, changes, and come face to face with fears and realities we may usually brush away. While the first half of the year is nothing like what we could have imagined, it’s never too late to take steps to help you tap into your own innate power and help you finish the year off on a high note. As the world is starting to open up in a lot of places, this is such a good time to reflect back on what your intentions were at the beginning of the year and how this new reality has affected them. This is not an opportunity to be hard on yourself for not sticking to your resolutions, but a gentle check-in to help you get clear on what you want to invite in your life. You can think about how this situation may have changed you, where you have grown and where you have become more resilient. The nature of life is evolution and the truth is, you will never be in the exact same place twice whether you recognize it now or not.
This is a nice opportunity to check in with yourself and get really honest with what you want to see unfold for the rest of the year. It is time to continue building internal resilience as a result of the changing landscape.
A simple journaling session can be a cathartic exercise to help you quiet the noise and get your thoughts on paper so you can begin to take action. So if you’re ready, grab a journal and a pen, perhaps light a candle or meditate before, and use these prompts below to help guide your writing. Let whatever comes up to just come up, without judgment.
