I often listen to a favourite song (often spinning vinyl) and then let the lyrics inspire my writing, reflecting and/or journaling. This past week-end, I listened to a beautiful song by Ron Sexsmith called Maybe This Christmas.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or some other cultural/religious tradition this time of year, this song has a hopeful message about opening doors and our hearts.
Try this holiday journal writing exercise:
Listen to Maybe This Christmas (link below) and then journal with these reflective prompts leading the way:
- Is there someone in your life that you would like to open a, perhaps once closed, door?
- Is there anyone you would like to forgive at this time in your life?
- What brings you the deepest feelings of inner peace?
