Journal Prompt – Trying New Things

Hello again, my friends! I’m scheduling a few more journal prompt posts for the next few months, so I hope you find them helpful! Today’s prompt is one I’ve used a lot lately, because I’ve been trying a lot of new things these days. Normally a self-professed “perfectionist”, I started to realize that naming a trait doesn’t make it healthy. So I decided to bring more conscious awareness to my most recent attempts by journaling about them.

Re-framing my thoughts helped me to think about my recent attempts as growth opportunities. I put together lots of notes about things I could do differently the next time to get a better result, and felt good about the things I recognized as essential preparation. This exercise has totally changed the way I approach the projects in my life!

Since I am now consciously aware of the lessons I am learning when things don’t go how I expected, I have far less anxiety about making mistakes. Not to mention, I am improving very quickly! Let me know in the comments if you used these prompts, and what you were able to learn for next time!
