Eugi’s Weekly Prompt: Compassion

Know Your Worth; Own Your Life

You can find all the details to the challenge here.

There’s no place for me to judge if any particular religion is better than the other. I don’t know if one is the “above all others”.

Over the years, I’ve grown to identify myself as a spiritual person. I know my intuition has never failed me. I know I’ve found great peace in a realm beyond mortal capability.

These signals tell the muscles to move. During a seizure, a person’s muscles tighten and relax rapidly or stop moving completely. Seizures come on suddenly, and people who have them can’t control their muscles while they’re having a seizure.

If too many brain cells are sending signals at the same time, it causes an overload, and a person may pass out and shake all over. People…

Trauma Journaling Prompts

Don't Lose Hope

Journal writing is a voyage to the interior.” – Christina Baldwin

Writing is an outlet which can help us process trauma. It helps us sort out feelings, and gives the pain a voice. It’s a way of bearing witness to the messiness, and chaos. It also reveals progress, and ways in which we’ve changed.

Instructions for Journaling

Each day, take one of the listed prompts and try to write honestly and freely.

Always Give Thanks 🌺🌸🌼

Know Your Worth; Own Your Life

This idea of giving thanks is a lifestyle. It’s an every day gift to yourself❤️

Today, I’m thankful for my kids, my family, and my chosen family.

I’m thankful for body spray and days I can nap.

I’m thankful for emails, cell phones, and text messages.

I’m thankful for voice messages, reunions, and birthdays.

I’m thankful for Nutella, mm’s, strawberries, and sausage.

I’m thankful for generosity, friendliness, and compassion.

I’m thankful for moments when the sky is breathlessly stunning…. When babies taste ice cream for the first time, when individuals walk down the isle to accept their diploma.

There’s infinite places and individuals and reasons why I’m thankful, today.

Have an amazing day friends 🦃🍁🍽

With love and light,

Nova Namastè
