I probably have mentioned this many times before, but one of my favorite writing prompts in my journals is to document what went right in my day or what I am grateful for.
This can be as a simple as a list or it can be told in a story form.
It can even be just one line.
I had periods in my life where all I could manage to write about were the painful events in my life.
Either way, writing about what is seen as positive or what is seen as negative, writing helps by getting it out of the system.
I think of writing in a journal as removing a splinter.
It feels so much better once it’s out.
