In late 2012, I was playing around with the idea of a weekly journaling introspective.  After a bunch of brainstorming and a lot of note-taking, I came up with The Currently Journaling Challenge.

The idea behind the challenge was to take five minutes each week and write down what was going on in my right-now life. I wanted to keep it simple, yet appealing enough to come back to on a regular basis.

The Currently List Journaling Challenge uses the same seven one-word prompts each week. To make the challenge even easier, I created a simple journaling card with the prompts already listed. Each week I grab a card and spend just a few minutes filling it out.

There’s no right or wrong way to do the Currently Journaling Challenge! I fill out a physical journaling card each week, but there are lots of other Currently List journalers who put their own twist on the challenge and make it work for them.

The goal of the Currently List Journaling Challenge to spend five minutes telling your right-now story — how you do it is totally up to you.

Take five minutes to document your right-now story.



How I Take on the Challenge:

I use the physical Currently journaling cards each week — usually the original black, but sometimes I switch it up and use one of the colorful cards, or pull out the Currently stamp set and make one of my own.

To remind myself to fill out a card, I set an alarm on my phone for 3pm every Friday afternoon.  I’m usually at my kitchen table on Friday afternoon, so I find that it’s a pretty good time to reflect on what’s going on right now and what’s happened over the past week.

I take a photo of my Currently List Journaling Card and I share it on Instagram and Facebook with the rest of the Currently List Journaling Community. Our shared hashtag is #CurrentlyList and I’ve been recently posting under #CurrentlyFridays as well.

Currently Community:

My favorite part about the Currently List Journaling Challenge is sharing my list and getting into fun conversations with friends about what we’re all doing right now. It’s fun to see who’s reading what, and who’s watching the same TV shows or listening to the same music. It’s a great way to meet new friends and keep connected with a community that reaches around the world.

Use the hashtag #CurrentlyList on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to add your photos to the Currently List community.
