13 Everyday Life Journaling Prompts

Last week I was checking in on the message boards at Two Peas and read a thread from someone who was looking for some everyday life journaling prompts. I immediately started thinking of some of my favorites and started writing.

Above are 13 journaling prompts/thought starters for telling the stories of your daily life. My hope is that you take these ideas and run with them - go tell some of those wonderfully basic stories. Words are powerful and there's no better time then right now. You can download a PDF of this list below:
