20 New Year’s Journaling Prompts: Reflect and Prepare for 2023! December 26, 2022 Reading Time: 3 min Share133TweetPin4Share137 SharesAs we head into 2023 we have a lot to be grateful for. And a lot that is still challenging. Have you considered what you learned and achieved in 2022? Or what you’d like to be different in 2023? Because before we set goals it can be really helpful to reflect on the previous year and what you’d like to be different in the next. It’s Reflection Time! Below I offer some journaling prompts for you to reflect on the year (you’ve probably done more than you realise). And then there are journaling prompts to consider what you’d like to be different in 2023. The quiet time between Christmas and New Year or in early January is an ideal time to reflect, ponder and review. You can do all of the prompts (taking as long as you want!), or just pick the prompts that grab or interest you. A thought: if you notice you’re avoiding one of the prompts below, it may mean there is an important realisation or learning in there for you… So if you’re feeling brave, take on that challenge—and be Fiercely Kind with yourself to face those truths within.
