This year, I’m using the Present Over Perfect Guided Journal. I read Shauna Neiquist’s Present Over Perfect book when it came out a few years ago and so much of it just connected with me. When I saw she had created a journal, I knew it was right for this season of my life. The journal has small excerpts from the book and prompts to help you think, reflect, and write. I’ll be sharing some of the prompts and my responses.
Prompt (pg. 156): What does yes man to you?
Yes means letting go of control and what I think should be done.
Yes means adventure and rest and experiencing new things.
Yes means play and laughter.
Yes means stepping into the unknown of God.
Yes means listening – really listening – to the question.
Yes means receiving.
yes means love.
