Journal Prompt: Writing Your Story

Your story is so important!! It’s one of the many unique things about you that makes you special. But it’s also true that all of our stories have things about it that are difficult and hard to face. I once did this journal prompt for my story and it allowed me to see myself and my story differently.

Journal Prompt

Today’s journal prompt is all about writing your narrative with a spin. Write your story as a narrative of someone else’s story. When I did the prompt I told the story of a girl name Anna and I wrote about her story and adventures, but of course it was my story. Below are some things to consider to help get started.

What part of your story are you wanting to write about?

What is the character’s name in the story?

What type of narrative is this? For example, my story was a story of overcoming an obstacle.

After you write your story reflect on how it made you feel. How did it changed how you see your story?

Journal Prompt: Strength

One of my favorite types of journal prompts are ones that involve telling my story. Today’s promote is all about retelling a story when you felt strong. There are many circumstances in life that can make us feel less then or not strong enough. But today we are going to remember a time when we felt as strong as we actually are.

Journal Prompt

Think of a time when you felt strong. Strength can be in whatever way you define it. Write out what happened and what made you feel strong.

How did you look at yourself differently after this experience?

How do you still carry this same strength in your life today?
