      1. Seriously. I just saw today’s prompt is note. I love music, but like Rebecca, I’m tapped out!


      2. Yeah, I know. And the next one is ‘note’ – slightly less musical interpretation, but I’m getting wiped out. Wished they’d saved the easier ones for the end when we’re running low on motivation.


      1. How about someone I think you’re not? You’re not an old man sitting all day to mist and shape your bonsai. You’re not that teacher whose best friend is a plant (think Dwight Schrute from the Office).


    1. It’s a typical day. I try to have a nice routine in the mornings and evenings which helps, thanks.


    1. I fell in love with journaling when I was 13 years old after we moved to a small desert town. I was off-and-on during school years, but its been an important part of my life for decades!

      Yeah, meditation, I’m not so good at. I used to do a guided meditation in the mornings and night! Then it was just mornings, and now, I’m pathetically clocking in 10 mins in the a.m.
