Were you ever asked what is your favorite song? book? movie? destination? I was. Many times. I seem to easily find the answers, but each time I am asked again – the answers change.

My favorites keep on changing based on periods in life, mood, trend, different experiences, etc.

Therefore I think compiling a list of favorites and updating it monthly, annually or at any other rate that works for you, might be a great journaling prompt.

This is going to serve as an important document of your life, perpetuating various thoughts, moods, fashions and trends in a course of a year, several years or however long you choose to update your Catalog of Favorites.

This week I am prompting you to make a “FAVORITES” scrapbook or journal.

So grab a new journal and start documenting:

  1. What is your favorite book?
  2. What is your favorite song?
  3. What is your favorite color?
  4. What is your favorite destination?
  5. What is your favorite memory?
  6. What is your favorite TV show?
  7. What is your favorite movie?
  8. What is your favorite food?
  9. What is your favorite dessert?
  10. What is your favorite treat?
  11. What is your favorite car?
  12. What is your favorite piece of clothing?
  13. What is your favorite fashion accessory?
  14. What is your favorite perfume?
  15. What is your favorite leisure activity?
  16. Who is your favorite author?
  17. Who is your favorite actor/actress?
  18. Who is your favorite singer?
  19. Who is your role model?
  20. Where is your favorite place to be?

You can go ahead and answer all those question, you can add more questions or pick your favorite 10 and answer them annually, or monthly or once in a blue moon… Whatever works for you!

For an additional “historic value” try to find images that correspond to your list of favorites – either take them yourself with your handy-dandy camera or give Google Images a try and combine those images in your list.

      Thank you! The fun thing is to watch the list change from time to time… Or is it fun just because I like to analyze everything??? (#OCD)

    I try to journal my life
    but sometimes a day goes by that isn’t as interesting as you might have liked
    I came across your blog this week and well today i will write my favourites and maybe even add a collage of them…
    I will be checking out your older blogs to fill my generous stack of empty notebooks
    (i now tell my friends i collect them… easier than explaining the wanting for a fresh one)

    • Avital says:

      Thanks for sharing, Calins. I do understand the desire for a fresh new journal… This is why I started making my own journals 🙂

  3. […] Make a list of favorites.  When you have lost yourself for a while, this journaling technique can help you realize you really […]

    Was inspired by this to create a collage of photographs of my favorite things — I change my favorites all the time, so I can’t wait to see what they are by the end of 2012!! 🙂
