If you have been following along with my journey for any amount of time you probably know three things about me: I love the seasons, I love to focus on the things that matter by living presently, and I love to journal.
Taking the time to journal is one of the most impactful ways for me to really be connected to the here and now, and embrace the season. I hope that these prompts help you the same way!
