Step 1: Find small cards for prompts. I used these "word cards" that come on a binder clip because they already have a hole punched. Alternatively a craft hole punch could add a fun touch or cutting paper squares could work as well. I wanted a sturdier paper and the word cards thickness was ideal.
Step 3: Decide on the means of the daily prompt.
I found these little clasps with colorful strings and attached one clasp to each prompt card to be pulled off a hook one day at a time, then placed in a jar of joy. I used a simple glass jar for all the finished prompts. Since it's clear, it can be a decorative reminder of the joys cultivated and may also serve as a repository for beginning a new 40 day journey.
Time will tell if the design works as a love fit for this friend. Today is Day 1 and I've already heard the first joy prompt is "skip" and the first step to any practice is to begin...
Wish you joy and a skip in your step!
