30 Day Journal Challenge! Day 28 – Today I’d Like To Pretend:

We’re doing the Hello Day Journal Practice together, every day for 30 days. I’ll share the prompts here on my blog and also on Instagram – where you can join in with pictures of your Hello Day journal, using the hastag #hellodayjournal

I’m using my Hello Day Guided Journal + Coloring Book for this – it has a “Hello Day” doodle to colour and a different prompt for each day. You can get your own copy on Amazon:

USA: Amazon.com | Canada: Amazon.ca | Great Britain: Amazon.uk | Europe: Amazon.de

Or you can play along in your own journal.

Our prompt for Day 28 – Today I’d Like To Pretend:

I like this way this prompt can stretch your perspective.

There are a lot of ways you can play with pretending that actually help you in practical ways, like:

  • If you have a difficult work situation you can spend the day pretending that it’s easy or pretend you enjoy it and see what ideas come out of that.
  • If you have a dream that feels impossible you can pretend it’s already here and see what you can learn about it that way.

I am not a big believer in “fake it till you make it”as a dream strategy.

Fighting reality is just not a pleasant way to live. Pretending to be someone/somewhere you’re not actually cuts you off from your power.

Being where you are while staying committed to moving along the path that leads to where you want to be – that is powerful.

But I do like “fake it for a day and see what you can learn about it”.

This kind of pretending can shift your perspective to show you new solutions to the obstacles you face on the path to your dream.  Or it can help you fill up on the energy and qualities of your dream.

Or it can just be fun to play make-believe sometimes.

Our next (free! online) Journal Party is happening TODAY! Our special guest is Connie Solera from Dirty Footprints Studio!
