We are heading into Week 4 of the #JournalinginJuly Challenge. Have you kept going and written something each day? If you have and would like to share don’t forget to link up with Debbie from Deb’s World and I each Saturday in July.
Self Reflection Journaling
Although some of the prompts have almost stumped me throughout the process, they have made me think and I’ve surprised myself that I’ve written something for each day. This week the prompts include some self-evaluation and introspection such as writing ‘What I’m Good At…’ and also ‘What I don’t want in my life’.
What I’m Good At…
Most of us don’t like to acknowledge our successes or what we excel at so this will be an interesting and important prompt to be reflected upon. Again the ‘mean girl’ whispers in our ear that we aren’t good enough at all when in reality we all contribute to life and excel in various ways, in our own way. It is a matter of VALUING OUR OWN SELF WORTH.
Often people will see our worth but we can’t or won’t acknowledge it. If we keep putting ourselves down, criticizing ourselves or not standing up for ourselves, then we can’t blame others for treating us the same way.
We need to be proud of all that we do and not diminish the value.
What I Dont’ Want in My Life
Another important prompt this week is What I don’t want in my life. We spend so much time thinking and planning what we want but sometimes neglect to take an audit of our life in general and examine what, if anything is holding us back or doesn’t bring added value or joy to our lives. Once we do that we then need to have the COURAGE to make these changes.
Week 4 #JournalinginJuly Prompts
Here are the prompts for Week 4 which I will also share in the Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond Facebook Group each day along with a quote that I feel is relevant to the prompt. Remember, these are your personal thoughts and reflections so you may just want to write them for yourself. Sometimes you might just add an image if that captures your thoughts. It may only be a sentence or two, or bullet points or many pages. A journal is personal so whatever you choose will be right for you.
Day 22 – I’m Good At…..
Day 23 – My Favourite Season
Day 24 – What I Don’t want in my life
Day 25 – I’m Excited About….
Day 26 – The best thing about today
Day 27 – My Favourite Movie and Why

I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts and also there are some interesting prompts this week which seem to be centred around home and my life.
Don’t forget to link up with Deb and I on Saturday and happy journaling!
