Daily Journaling Prompts for September 2018

Lake Placid New York - Vintage Homestead Abandoned - Autumn

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 people doing our Page Per Day Challenge.

Some days are the same each month:

At the beginning of each month we write our goals for the upcoming month. Even if you did this earlier in the year, things change so it’s a good idea to re-set and update your goals each month. We also write what we are looking forward to this month.

Mid-month we see what progress we’ve made. This is a chance to jump-start any goals that have slipped off your radar and regain focus.

At the end of the month we write about good things/ favorite moments for the month, and evaluate our goals progress to see what still needs work in the upcoming weeks.

All the other days have new journaling topics and writing prompts!

This month’s theme is word association.

There is a new word for each day. For each word, there are several things you could do: just start writing the first things that come to mind; write what that word means to you and why it is significant; write about a time or a person in your life that the word brings to mind; or anything else you find meaningful about that word.

This seems deceptively simple. But if you really get into each word, you might go to some very real places.

I’ve also thrown a couple of quotes in there too, so you can write about what each quote means to you.

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: “Be mindful when it comes to your words. A string of some that don’t mean much to you may stick with someone for a lifetime.” Rachael Wolchin
