Journaling Every Week: 52 Topics to Get You Writing

Whether you are experienced in journaling or completely new to the process, Journaling Every Week is designed to get you thinking about—and writing about—your life, relationships, patterns, goals, and some of your fondest memories. You’ll benefit from writing about these thought-provoking prompts and learn something about yourself along the way.

Journaling is a useful tool for self-discovery. In your journal, you can explore a wide range of subjects, themes, and ideas, revisit the past, and vent about anything (or anyone). In a way, you play counselor to yourself by digging deep into your innermost thoughts and emotions and writing about how you feel.

This fun and innovative book is filled with hundreds of journaling prompts that cover your childhood, friendships, beliefs and values, your career, coping with grief, fears, forgiveness, your purpose, and much more.

Sample prompts include:

* What are your favorite childhood memories? List at least ten, and then write about each one.

* What did you want to be when you grew up? Are you that now? If not, when did that idea change? Why? How is your current job different from the one you thought you wanted?

* Write for fifteen minutes about the changes in the last ten years of your life, and change in general. Do you embrace change? Resist it? Why? What feelings or emotions does the thought of change bring out in you?

Start journaling today, and begin your adventure of self-discovery!

An Excerpt from Journaling Every Week

Here are two prompts from the book:

* When you were growing up, were you told to express your feelings and emotions or to hide them? Do you still do that? Why or why not? Do you encourage your family members and friends to express their true feelings and emotions? Why or why not?

* What’s the best advice you’ve gotten from other people? List 25 bits of wisdom and who gave them to you, then write about each one. Did you follow all the advice? Some of it? How did it work out for you?
