For every failure, there’s an alternative course of action.

You just have to find it.

When you come to a road block, take a detour.

Dear Fellow Journalers,

In my rush to write and post for this month, I completely forgot about these Prompts! These are ones that are ‘gonna make you think.


  • Create a list of things you enjoyed as a child. Add a photo of you as a child.
  • What was the biggest decision you made today/this month/this year?
  • What would you do if you had the ability to read minds for 24 hours? Several years ago there was a movie entitled “What do Women Want?” starring Mel Gibson. By some Hollywood magic, he got to read women’s’ minds for several weeks! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!
  • Who do you admire and why?
  • List your favorite movies.
  • If you could choose, which era would you have liked to have been born into and why?
  • Go on a staycation in your own town. Visit local attractions, stores you haven’t shopped in before, events, restaurants. Keep maps, ticket stubs, menus etc.
  • Send someone a thank you note and write the note in your journal.
  • Make a list of 10 flowers you like. You can get pictures on-line or a seed catalog.

Read the following statement and write how you feel about it:

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way”.

Wayne Dyer

Just a note

Dear fellow Journalers,

I recently received a comment from a reader who said they couldn’t “find” me on Google. I took my web site down a few months ago to concentrate on my writing. You can find my cards on this link.

UYCJ has been up and running since Feb. 5th! That’s 64 posts published! So  I have a question. How am I doing?

Don’t be shy. Is there any content you would like to see more of?  Anything you would like me to “forget”. Many of you have commented on the pictures I have included with Random Thoughts, some of you like Perspectives, still others like the journal covers. The new year will include more Perspectives from “G”, Marybeth, and Paul as well as a new author.  Also featured will be a monthly Pursuit of Happiness Post to inspire us all.

Remember, we are all traveling this journey, some different roads , but we’re all doing our best to help each other.








Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations.

I may not reach them, but I can look up and see

their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.

                                          Louisa May Alcott
