Day 6

Don’t forget yourself.

As you practice gratitude each morning. You’ll begin to find it almost too easy. I feel like I could spend half the day writing about all the things I have to be grateful for without ever repeating myself. But remember to give yourself a shout-out. You can be grateful to yourself for your commitment to improving your life. You can be grateful to yourself for any good decisions you’ve made. You can be grateful for the body you have and the mind you use. You can be grateful for the fact that change is possible and that you are taking steps to take ownership of that change.

Just the fact that you’re reading this journal tells me that you have a lot to thank yourself for. So today, give yourself some love when you’re writing about your gratitude. You deserve it.


Daily: (The pdf version below contains three lined pages for your daily journal)






The above is an excerpt from the upcoming The Lyceum Course Journal. We will be releasing it here for free as a Daily Prompt blog post. If you would like a physical copy, we will link to it here once it is released.


Suggested Use:

I realize a daily journal prompt on a blog is a little weird. This is how I would suggest using it: Open your favorite note-taking software such as Evernote, copy and paste this post into it, and write your daily entries there.
