You guys, we are only a few days away from December! *inserts lots of heart emojis here* December is not only my birthday month, but it’s also my blog’s birthday month as well! I think it’s pretty safe to say that December is my absolute favorite month of the year, haha. Since December is a pretty month for me, I have created a fun 31 day journaling challenge for December in honor of all of my journal loving readers! So, if you’re into journaling, I am positive you will enjoy this challenge.

December Journaling Challenge
I am revealing this challenge before December comes is so that YOU have enough time to set up your journals for the challenge (no procrastinating here, hehe!) So, that gives you 5 days to get your journals or pieces of paper (that works too) all set up before the challenge officially begins on December 1st! Time starts ticking now…
Free PDF available
I have included a PDF that you can print to help guide you during the challenge. If you don’t want to print anything, you can just save the image to your phone and bookmark this page! Boom.
NOTE: I will not be documenting the 31 days on my blog. However, I will be reminding you on my IG stories (follow me on Instagram, here!) everyday and showing you some of my entries from the challenge on Instagram.
Journaling Challenge Rules
I have created 31 journal prompts that are meant to be used from December 1st all up until December 31st. Each day contains a different prompt. These prompts are not holiday-based. They are personal prompts meant to help you reflect on life, your favorite things, the year of 2019, your goals and your future. December is the best month to get closure of 2019 and prepare for 2020! Who’s ready to join me?
Are you ready to join me?
If you’re ready to join me, get your journal out and let’s begin setting up our journals together! And if you can’t set up your journal right now, it’s okay! Bookmark this page and set up your journal when you have time. Each prompt should take you about 10 minutes, so time is NOT an excuse! Who doesn’t have 10 minutes?
