Birthday Journal Prompts

My birthday was yesterday. 54 trips around the sun and I want to remind both of us that getting older is a gift that many do not receive. So take good care of yourself, and don’t beat yourself up for a few wrinkles or a body that doesn’t look like it used to. And remember, life is short and you are in the driver’s seat.

I’m using my birthday to do some of what I call “Reflect and Release”.  If you feel like doing this with me, here’s what you’ll want to do:


  1. Clear your space. Ideally, create a space free of distraction.
  2. Surround yourself with some items that inspire you and bring you joy – flowers, candles, crystals and other objects.
  3. Grab your favorite journal and, if you want to, pop on this playlist.


Reflect and Release Journal Prompts 

  • What happened this year that you’re really proud of and grateful for?
  • What lessons did you learn from the past year that you want to bring forward?
  • What were some challenges you faced? How did you handle them?
  • Who would you like to forgive? What stories do you want to release?


Take your time with your answers. Come back to them and re-reflect. And if you feel like you want to dig deeper, my Visioning Workshop course is available here. The workshop includes a full vision board workbook, a grounding meditation, Canva vision board templates and guided instructions from 3 live workshops.

Finally, I wanted to share some words on aging from one of my favorite writers, Brianna Weist…

Temporary. Everything. All of it even the best of it, especially the best of it.

We only have so many years to know human love and do human things.

Love them, all of them, even the painstaking ones. They. too, will not last.

They are human. They are the experience.

The insecurity? The experience. The heartache? The experience.

The confusion? The experience. The joy? The experience.

There is nothing lost if we learn something from it.

Your willingness to fail is proportionate to your potential to gain and to grow.

The timer never stops running.

All you will regret is not reaching harder for what you really wanted while it was still in front of you.

Sending you love my friends.
