Journaling for Spring

By Steph G.

Do you keep a journal or diary? I loved writing in a journal when I was younger, but as I crossed over into adulthood, I lost the drive. I didn’t want it to just be a record of my days, but I wasn’t sure what else to write.

I saw a photography challenge a few weeks ago that gave photographers a daily photo “challenge”, and it inspired me to come up with a sort-of journaling “challenge” per-se. So, I’m sharing with you 31 journaling ideas for the month of May – take them or leave them, but maybe you’ll see it as a good start to jump into journaling if you’re lacking some inspiration.

  1. What are three things that happened today that you’re grateful for?
  2. Who is someone you admire?
  3. What is a moment you wish you could re-visit?
  4. What are 4 things you like about spring?
  5. If you could have a coffee date with anyone (dead or alive), who would you choose and why?
  6. What is something that’s happened in the past year that you wish you could “let go of”?
  7. Tell me about what your family did today (even if your family is you and your pet).
  8. Do you think the weather plays a role in your emotional state? Why or why not?
  9. Do you have a green thumb? If not, do you wish that you did?
  10. What is your relationship like with your mom? 
  11. If you could plan out your perfect day, what would it look like start to finish?
  12. What are three important (or not important) things that you’ve learned in the last year?
  13. If you could make a list of the three most defining moments of your life – what would they be?
  14. What is something you wish you could experience again and do differently?
  15. Do you know your enneagram type? If you do, do you feel like it’s fitting??

  17. If you could travel anywhere NEW, where would you go?
  18. What do you consider to be road trip essentials?
  19. Are you a heavy or a light packer when you are traveling? Why do you think this is?
  20. Do you want kids? If you already have children, do you want more? Why?
  21. Do you have a dream or goal that you’re currently pursuing? 
  22. How do you feel about your job?
