Leigh Patterson started Moon Lists as an online project: an evolving set of questions for reflecting on, documenting, and taking inventory of the recent past. Each month, Patterson asked women in a variety of creative fields to respond to a list of prompts about the past 30 days. This journal is a tangible version of her exercise—a notebook you shove in your bag and aren’t afraid to wear down.
Included in this guided journal are 18 months’ worth of prompts for your own Moon Lists reflections. Create a weekly ritual to journal and consider what’s taking up space in your mind. These list-making prompts will un-cloud the division between the conscious and subconscious, bringing awareness to the beauty of daily life.
Maybe you share and talk through your lists with a friend or partner. Maybe you develop your own ritual surrounding self-reflection (lighting a candle or a stick of special incense). Maybe you do it outside or at dinner, or at the park. Maybe it is spontaneous. Maybe it’s written down; maybe spoken aloud. This is the truest, most timeless form of self-care. It costs nothing other than your attention, asking that you live with your eyes open.
