Welcome to the all new Celebrate Monday. We’ve retooled the feature to help you become a better memory keeper (with a focus on journaling) plus made it even easier to participate!
Celebrate Monday is a weekly journaling exercise designed to help you get back to basics and find more joy in your memory keeping.
Each week we’ll give you a prompt and you’ll be asked to select a story from your everyday life to share with us in the comments.
The idea is simple! Strip away the extras for a small moment to practice writing and center yourself on what is most important: the memory.
This week’s prompt:
favorite fall traditions
My Monday Memory
I am not really much of a sports fan, but there is something about football in the fall that signals my body and mind to shift gears. From all those Friday nights in high school to the Saturday afternoon viewing parties of today, football season marks a time of friendship and fun that even this homebody looks forward to. Even more than football however, is a true seasonal love: festivals. There is nothing that makes me happier than walking around a fall festival, feeling the crisp air on my face and feeling grounded in the ‘right now’.
How to Participate
- Select a favorite story, from past or present, related to the prompt.
- Share the memory by journaling in the comments on this post.
- Spread the celebration by commenting on stories from others.
