Hello all, today I wanted to share with you 31 journal prompts for gratitude. This is a challenge for the month so that whenever you journal, you answer one question from the journal prompt for gratitude list.

Having a list of prompts to remind you what you are grateful for is very beneficial and can help you be more appreciative for what you DO have versus what you want.

Too often, we are forgetful of the many blessings we DO have and are constantly wishing or complaining, wanting what we don’t have. God blesses us daily and it’s time for a reminder of how much.

Journaling is a helpful and therapeutic tool for me.

It’s no secret that I am a planner geek which I’m sure you can tell by my name: mrsplanahead. I’ve always loved all things planner related, stationary, pens, stencils, planners, and journals.

Journaling relaxes me just as much as writing my prayers out to God does. What helps calm you down when anxiety strikes?

Hopefully, journaling does. For me, writing out my day and looking back on it is something SO memorable. I also like to include pictures in my journal entry, stickers, and washi.

Journaling is a creative outlet for me and keeps my creative juices flowing. Not only that, it’s a beautiful keepsake.

Keeping a record of things that happen in my life really helps me worry less. There’s so many times where issues come up, like a pending doctor appointment or something having to do with my kids, important information that I need record of.

That’s why I started planning in the first place. As a busy blogging mom, you can’t ever have too many planning systems or gratitude journals. I have a planner for 2020 that I use daily, a bujo planning system but I make sure to record what I’m grateful for every single day and a highlight of my day.

It may seem tedious to some, but for me it works wonders in reminding me how blessed my life really is.

Once you complete these journal prompts, don’t just stop there! Continue every single day reminding yourself of all that God has given you.

I try my hardest to remain grateful every day, but some days I just plain old forget and start complaining about every and anything. I know, not graceful at all. But I’m human, I can honestly admit that!

As much as I want to be the perfect woman, I’m not. I have a ton of flaws and am not as put together as I may seem. Despite being mrsplanahead, I’ve made my share of mistakes.

What’s great about God is that he loves us so much and forgives us when we make our mistakes and want to change. Coming to God and talking it out to him is what makes me feel better about myself inside.
