“Love the moment and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.”
— Corita Kent
Right now… is one of my go-to, all-purpose journaling prompts.
No matter what is going on, the Right now prompt is what brings me into direct contact with the present moment.
It is in the present moment where all the riches are. This is where we mine for creative gold.
Right now, it is evening in Oaxaca City, Mexico, and I am propped up in bed typing this post.
Right now, I feel vulnerable. I’ve pushed myself physically beyond my own limits these past days, weeks, months… maybe the whole past year, and I’m exhausted.
Right now, I’m wanting to Go Gently, and so I’m breathing deeply, drinking water with freshly squeezed limes that I just picked from the tree, and lingering to pet the dogs a little bit longer.
Right now, I’m meditating on the idea of devotion. What am I devoting myself to? And how can I use my own discomfort to come into more alignment with my energy?
Right now, the church bells of Santo Domingo are gonging. The sun has just set and the sky is filled with low, puffy clouds, heavy with rain that will pass us by and deliver water to the mountain villages.
Right now, I’m grateful for how writing brings me home to the center of myself.

Right now… (describe where you are, and what you see, hear, smell, taste, touch)
Right now… (describe how you are feeling)
