20 Journal Prompts For Personal Growth

We’re more than halfway through the year, and I seriously can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. Lately, I’ve been all about personal growth and staying on top of my mental health. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, so it’s important to me to identify and stay away from certain triggers. Writing has helped with that tremendously. Not just blogging, but journaling. Actually writing out my goals, my feelings, and sometimes my fears. Here are 20 journal prompts that have helped me along the way.
