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:
one year ago
My Monday Memory
One year ago I was giving myself injections and buying pregnancy tests a dozen at a time. One year ago many of my thoughts, feelings and actions were consumed with this time- and emotion-intensive process of making the baby we wanted so badly. One year ago, the baby I now hold in my arms was only a dream in my heart.
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.
