Pencil Case Prompts: Choose a Writing Prompt

Activity

Choose a writing prompt! 

  1. What are 5 people, places, things, or ideas you are grateful for?
  2. What do you want to improve before the end of the year? 
  3. What is one thing you are looking forward to? 
  4. Write a short letter or poem describing a time you learned a valuable lesson. 

Note: Feel free to choose more than one writing prompt! 


My Reflection

I would like to challenge myself and do all four prompts! 

  1. My family, the opportunities I have to express myself creatively, my dogs, my healing journey, the lessons I’ve learned. 
  2. I want to sleep 8 to 10 hours every night. 
  3. I am looking forward to spending time with all of my siblings during the holiday season. 
  4. Even with the world on my shoulders, I soared past the clouds carrying pounds of rainfall. Each drop is a day that’s gone by. I continue to fly ahead. I can keep flying. I choose to keep flying.

Pencil Case Prompts: Let’s Set Some Goals!

Activity

What are 3 goals you would like to set this month?

Note: Goals can be  simple, complex, changed or even adjusted as time passes. It’s totally okay if you decide that a goal you’ve set isn’t the right fit for you. Goals are about you and what you want to accomplish for yourself.

My Reflection

The three goals I would like to set this month are:

1. To be gentle with myself, prioritize my mental health, and not compare myself to others.

2. To work on my certification and complete 4 tests.

3. To remind myself every day that I’m worthy, I’m enough, I’m doing the best that I can, and just because something hasn’t happened doesn’t mean it will never happen.

Share a moment where you felt empowered.


Reflection

A moment, I remember, where I felt empowered was when I decided to ask for help with my mental health instead of isolating myself and struggling on my own. At that moment I knew I was capable and willing to receive help without feeling shame or embarrassment.
