Today I am going to be sharing with you a 31 day journaling challenge I have created. These prompts/questions will revolve around self-love and discovery. I’ve always loved to write and let streams of consciousness flow from my pen onto the blank pages but I understand that it can be difficult knowing where to start. If you would like to get into a regular journaling routine, I would recommend getting an aesthetically pleasing notebook, writing tool of choice and begin by addressing the questions below. Answer one question per day and by the end of the month, you will understand yourself a bit better as well as form a great new habit! Try to fill a whole page with each response. I am going to complete this challenge for the entire month of December but feel free to do it at any time.
Also, the images in this blog were taken in Verona, Italy by my husband and myself. I hope you enjoy…
