    Welcome to a year of original insight! I am humbled by your interest in receiving the weekly original journal prompts. Whether you are new to journaling or whether you’ve been journaling for years, each time we put pen to paper and explore our life experiences through journaling, it is always a new adventure!

    A few simple pointers to start off our journey through journaling: Write whatever comes to mind even if it seems “off topic”; There are no right or wrong responses; Keep writing for a few minutes or as long as it feels comfortable and useful. That’s it!

    Each week I will be journaling along with you, and I will share the prompt, as well as many of my journal responses, here on “Cathartic Clarity”: the Online Community dedicated to empowering clarity through journaling! If you have any questions or insights you want to share, I would love to hear from you. Let’s get started! This week’s journal prompt is:

    Week 1: “I feel most alive when . . .”

    Week 1



    I feel most alive when I am writing something juicy, something helpful, something that surprises even me. I feel most alive when I have a moment of opportunity where everything feels possible and anything is likely. I feel most alive when I am talking to a friend or a client and to both of our surprise they arrive at a stunning insight that changes everything they thought they knew about themselves and life. I feel most alive when I am well rested and well nourished, when I am teaching someone something new, when I notice an interesting pattern or connection, and when I am learning something new. I feel most alive when I stumble upon an insight into the mystery of it all. I feel most alive when I see a hawk, especially when it is flying right over head, or if he is hidden amidst the trees but I notice him despite the masterful camouflage. I feel most alive when I sit down to a home cooked meal of steamed veggies and a side of rice. I realize that these experiences wouldn’t hold such an experience of aliveness for me if they were all I’d ever known. I realize that through knowing oppression, I came to experience liberation. I realize that it is the hardships in life that create the stage for joys to dance upon. Knowing this helps me open in moments of hardships, oppression, and adversity, making each moment meaningful: making each moment ripe with the potential to feel most alive.



    I feel most alive when I am producing results, that can be a new client, or creating new programs or just feeling great. I feel most alive when I am riding my bicycle (Rosie is awesome) going up hills with a strong head wind is very challenging. I feel most alive when clients acknowledge the value they are creating in their lives or business after our coaching conversations. I feel most alive when in company of my daughter Tonya. I feel most alive with in my son’s company. I feel most alive when doing things with my grandchildren Markus and Merannda. I feel most alive when snow shoeing on deep virgin powder snow. I feel most alive when making big deposits in my bank account.
    I feel most alive when I wake up in the morning and a whole new day is in front of me. I feel most alive on Monday mornings, a whole new week to play and work and make a difference. I feel most alive when doing little things that make a huge difference for other people. I feel most alive when consuming fresh healthy food, fruits and of course dark chocolate. I feel most alive when I am present to myself. I feel most alive when I LOVE myself.
