Journal Writing Prompt 21 - Right Now

Today's journaling prompt is all about focusing on right now. Right this minute. (well, as soon as you read this, and open your journal). 

Open your journal...write the date, the day, and what time it is 
Then start writing, what's on your mind.

What are you thinking about? What's your state of mind? Are you happy? Sad? Worried? Normal?

What's driving you? Focus on the moment. Focus inwards. Pay attention to your thoughts, and write them down, as quickly as possible. 

The purpose of this prompt is to learn to pay attention to the moment, as well as to later evaluate what's taking your energy. Are you worried about stuff that has nothing to do with your present life? Are you focusing on the right thing at the right time? Are your energies divided unequally? Pay attention. Assess. Journal. 


  1. Dolly,
    I love the 'Now' approach to this journaling prompt. It really makes you aware of where your mind is focused! When we focus on right now, it can help to center and calm us so we're not thinking about stuff that stresses us from the past or worrying about the future.

    I have chosen your post, Journal Writing Prompt 21: Right Now, for the #JournalChat Pick of the Day for all things journaling on Twitter on 5/16/11. I will post a link on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and my blog, Refresh with Dawn Herring.
