“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” ~Johnny Cash

Each Sunday we will be providing a journal topic for the week with a prompt for each day. Set a time each day to journal in a place where you can sit quietly without interruption to reflect on your thoughts. You don’t need to answer the daily prompts, they are provided in case you need a little boost to get your thoughts flowing.
