Having fun with our journal writing: lists! Three ideas for listing tonight

Many of you who visit us here at The Warm Milk Journal know that I am a big fan of journal writing.


The mission of The Warm Milk Journal is to live a well balanced life by day and sleep restfully at night.

Journal writing aids us on our mission. If we are happy, we can celebrate by writing about it. If we are frustrated, worried, or anxious, we can get it out on paper before it causes us to lose precious sleep. We can also just have fun with our journals: get our creativity out…intuition often is born from uninhibited free expression…

Tonight, I want to look at list writing.

Lists are so fun. Magazines make their living on lists. What is on their covers? “The top ten ways to please your lover” or “The top ten places to retire”, “The three most important things to put on your resume”. You get the idea. We are hooked on lists. And for good reason, they are irresistible!

A few lists to try tonight:

1. Your top ten places to have an adventure.

2. Your list of favorite things to read for inspiration.

3. The silliest things you have ever done in your life.

I will start just a few for I really can’t resist…

Top places to have an adventure….

– Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC
– Savannah, Georgia
– The Alps of Switzerland

Top things to read that inspire me?

– anything by Anthony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, and Marianne Williamson
– poetry by Rumi
The Heart Centered Marriage by Sue Patton Thoele

Silliest things I have ever done in my life?

– move across the country from Seattle, WA to Jacksonville, FL (it turned out pretty well)
– wear my shirt inside out
– jump around in my living room

Your turn, Dear Warm Milk Journal reader.

Have fun!

    DEBRA!!! thank you! I started “white board discussions” at work (due to the fact I don’t like empty whiteboards” – so tomorrow’s discussion will be what is the silliest thing you’ve done!!



    hmmm, btw – mine are numerous, but will say… wore 2 different tennis shoes one day, gosh, now that i’m thinking about it… i can’t pinpoint anything else. hmm, will have to dwell in it before the morning!

    YOU are pretty awesome

      That’s wonderful, Marie.

      Thanks for sharing. It’s fun when we can lighten up and not take ourselves so seriously all the time.

      A wonderful (and silly) day to you and your colleagues!


      P.S. YOU are pretty awesome too! ; )

    These are great prompts. I may even use a few at Toastmasters for Table Topic questions 🙂 Thank you for sharing.
