Continuing our series on daily journaling prompts, here is a list of journaling topics for every day in September! This gives everyone some new ideas for journaling, and can help take the pressure off to think of something to journal about every day, especially for folks doing our Page Per Day Challenge.
This month’s theme is about challenges, how you have dealt with them in the past, how you can deal with them now, and how you can come out stronger from them.
1: What do you want to do this month? Write your goals for the month, and think about what you need to do to accomplish them.
2: What are you excited about in the coming month?
3: Life is a series of punches. It presents a lot of challenges. It presents a lot of hardship, but the people that are able to take those punches and able to move forward are the ones that really do have a lot of success and have a lot of joy in their life and have a lot of stories to tell, too.
