What do you write about in spring?

Every year it seems like winter begins a little later… and ends MUCH later. By the time mid-February rolls around, I’m definitely ready for spring!

Although we’re many weeks into the new year and most resolutions have long since been abandoned, I love that the thought of spring makes us want to make positive improvements in our lives. It’s never too late to begin again!

It’s not like spring is perfect or anything… There’s often rain, mud, melting snow, the first insects, and wind that will blow your coat off.

But there’s also warmer sun, longer days, spring cleaning, the first tender spring produce, and that FEELING of hope and renewal.

Let’s lean into those positive things. Use the rainy days for reflecting and planning, and the beautiful days for moving and implementing.


All of the things I mentioned above can be part of your spring journal.

Springtime journal prompts might seem very similar to January journal prompts. And whatever prompts you use, they can all contribute toward motivating your personal improvement efforts.

While writing about your feelings, observations, and plans is important… what’s even MORE vital is to pair ACTION with what you’ve written. Sometimes you have to see something on paper before your mind is in a place to do anything about it.

Get those things out of your head so you can figure out what you need to do. 🙂
