How about the simplest form of thematic writing prompt possible?
All four of these quotes from powerful, creative women focus on gratitude and appreciation. Read all of the quotes and choose one as your prompt.
Write it (or type it) into you notebook or into a document.
Read the quote aloud.
Re-read the quote silently and/or aloud three more times, taking a deep cleansing breath between each reading of the quote.
After the third breath, set your timer for five minutes. let your pencil or pen flow across the page as if it is in conversation with the speaker/writer of the quote. Allow your highest, deepest self (or whichever self is running your show today to put into words whatever needs to be said.
“Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.”
“The best way to show my gratitude is to accept everything, even my problems, with joy.”
“Appreciation can make a day – even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.”
“Let Gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayers.”
