Whether the ideas have slowed to a trickle or you’re just feeling curious and in the mood for a little reflection. The Honest Perspective weekly prompt is an invitation to ruminate on an idea and see what arises. A gentle nudge to look at things from a different angle and stay open to a new perspective.

Be it poetry or prose you’d like to submit to us, or a journal entry for your eyes only, take a moment to pause at some point during your week and set your pen free.

It’s all about the children. Love or loath them, have them, want them or want nothing to do with them, once you reach a certain age they begin to appear in every conversation. What is their role in your life?

Family can mean so many things. The one that we came from, the one that we choose, and the one that we create with our significant other. What does your family mean to you? Is it complete?

The topic of having children has changed hugely over the past few decades and it is normal to ask yourself whether you want children at all rather than to expect that having biological children will be the norm. Did you have the children you wanted and was that your choice? Or are you sick of being asked if you are going to have kids?
