Sometimes you just need to dump it all out on the page.
If today is that day for you, try this multi-part Story Starter. Take each ordered prompt on its own, without thinking about what comes next. Just write:
1. “My ‘every day normal’ looks like….”
2. “But just two months ago, ‘normal’ was….”
3. “I can’t wait for the day….”
4. “Yet right here and now, I am so grateful for….”
Make sure you write all the way through number four. Then consider:

I hope that you felt your heart make a shift as you moved through the present moment into gratitude, and a future where we no longer take the little things for granted.
