Use your journal as a mirror – a clear reflection of the Self.
Who am I?
What are my values?
What have I learned about myself through this day?
Do I have more/less understanding or empathy than I did the day before?
In what ways, if any, has my sense of self, my values, your sense of “community,” my willingness to serve others and be thankful, and my self-confidence/self-esteem altered through any experience in my day?
Have my motivations for changed? In what ways?
Which feelings and emotions surfaced?
How did I respond in the moment?
How did I acknowledge the feelings and emotions that surfaced?
How has an experience challenged stereotypes or prejudices I have/had? Any realizations, insights, or especially strong lessons learned or half-glimpsed?
Will these experiences change the way I act or think in the future?
Have I given, opened up or cared enough?
How have I challenged myself, my ideals, my philosophies, my concept of life or of the way I choose to live?
