How did I become aware?
How was I grateful?
Which aspects of my day’s experience or prayer excited, troubled, impressed, inspired or unnerved me?
What challenges did I face?
Which thoughts, emotions and feelings surfaced?
How did I acknowledge them?
What became of them?
What commitments did I make and what happened around those commitments?
What choices did I make? How did I discern?
Which feelings and emotions surfaced?
What made me smile and laugh?
What results and successes made me happy?
How do I look toward tomorrow?
