#SoftHeartSessions - Create your new year - Day 6

Howdy y'all, 

It's time for Day 6 of Create your new year, a series of #SoftHeartSessions daily journal prompts made to guide you through your next stage of growth. You can find the whole series here, or go back and start from Day 1.) Remember that if you miss a day any time, that's okay, just start again -- we are all human after all, and the best thing we can do is expect mistakes and just work through them. 💜

Now, find yourself 15 minutes and some space to write or record yourself as you work through today's prompt.

Does the world around you make it easier or harder to practice care for the things you listed yesterday? Get as specific as you can: how does the world conspire to help you care? How does it get in your way? If you have time, explore ways you might change things to make them more supportive.

Now that you thought about your why, we're looking back outward again. Think about the things you care about, the touchstones you distilled yesterday. How do you see them reflected (or not) in the world around you? 

Personally, I don't see a lot of my core values reflected in the systems around me, so a lot of my work is around creating and cultivating sub communities where care can thrive, though I hope to drive more systemic change as well. 

Leave a comment if you have any thoughts you'd like to share about what your explore with today's prompt. As always, there's no pressure to share anything 🤗

If you'd like to work through these daily prompts in a more social space or share your feelings about them afterward, you can join the Soft Heart Society Discord group here. The Soft Heart Society is an open group I run for caring creatives, and within it we have a section for folks participating in Soft Heart Sessions, so you can share about any feelings the journaling prompts have brought up for you and have folks who have also worked through them to chat with. You're welcome any time 💖

And if you aren't signed up to receive the whole series directly to your email, sign up here, so you can get each prompt emailed directly to you and won't miss any days. 💜 When you sign up, the prompts will start from Day 1, so you're able to start your three week session fresh 📃

with love,
riles

Thank you for being here 👋 I'm a queer artist who has intentionally built a life where I can work remotely and travel the world. Along the way, I'm trying to figure out how to be a good human.

I want to work together to help you create the world you want to live in. I write, make art, and create community spaces for us to to share thoughts, feelings, & opportunities for us to explore together. Being human is hard, but we can make it easier for each other. I believe in us. 💜
