Journal prompts are used to help inspire you and to give you something to think about. It’s the first week of November and it’s just hitting me that 2020 is two months away! This realization has many emotions flowing through me. It’s been a year of discovery for sure. I really want to sit back and think about everything I’ve accomplished this year. Also, I want to think about everything I want to achieve for next year.
I know I’m not the only one who feels this way and it can be so overwhelming with all of these thoughts and ideas just sitting in your head. That is when I had an idea to create a tool for us to use to brain dump. Something we can use and really self reflect. I put together a list of 20 journal prompts for the year 2020!
10 of the journal prompts will be used to reflect on your year of 2019. The next 10 will be to discover where you want to go and who you want to be in 2020. If you’re interested in keeping these journal prompts, I created a free printable so you can have a hardcopy!
