Journal Prompts

Hey, I’m back with more journal prompts for October. Last month I received lots of hits and positive feedback regarding September’s journal prompts. So, I’ve decided to bring this segment back and roll out my journal prompts until the end of 2020.

I like to use the last quarter of the year to reflect and dig deeper. For me, Autumn-Winter is the perfect time to wind down and refocus following a busy summer. 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster. I can admit that I lost my bearings once or twice over the last few months. But, your girl is back and my feet are on solid ground. Journaling and my prayer life have played a big part in helping me get back on track.

If you’re a newbie to journaling then be sure to have a read of last months post (here). I break it all down and walk you through the benefits of journaling. For those of you who are returning welcome back to the second month of #JournalWithJWV.

Go out there and be great

Today you have the chance at a fresh start with the beginning of a new month. Forget about all of the things you might have done yesterday and allow yourself to start over. In other words, the past means nothing and today is all that matters. If you put in the work in October as a result you’ll definitely see things starting to come together.

Be sure to work through the journal prompts daily at your pace. I’m not fond of journalling late in the evening, However, I do prefer to get-it-done first thing in the morning. In addition, I highly recommend that you give yourself enough time to be still so that you can actually hear yourself think. This way you can give your all to the questions. You might even pull together some of your own questions in the process. Try not to think too hard about the questions. Just have fun and allow your mind to answer freely.

Most importantly enjoy these journal prompts for October. I’ll be back next month with a fresh list of prompts for you. I look forward to hearing about all your progress. In conclusion, I truly hope that October will be an amazing month for you. Go out there and be great. Give 100% and do the best that you can do. Above all, keep your heart pure and rest assured that what is for you won’t pass you by.
