Journaling has been something that I have been doing ever since I was in seventh grade. I loved to open up my journal and write about everything that happened in my day. It didn’t matter if it was sad or happy, I would write down everything in that journal like I was talking to my best friend. Sometimes it can be hard to know that to write about when you first start journaling and that is why I created a list of journal prompts to help get you started!
