Book Review : 111 Journaling Prompts for Self-Reflection. 3 Stars- Not Bad

111 Journaling Prompts for Self-Reflection, Self-Discovery, and Self-Care by [Leila Kalmbach]

Book #.21 of #100BooksChallenge So this is a free download and for that I am forever thankful for but it didn’t hit home with me when I read through, but for a freebie on Amazon I can’t complain.

About The Book

Journaling can be a great way to work through challenging situations, figure out what you truly want out of life, and discover how you got to where you are. But just staring at a blank page, unsure what to write about, won’t get you anywhere.

That’s where journaling prompts come in. This brief e-book contains 111 prompts to inspire you to put pen to paper and get started looking at your life and goals in new ways. It also includes a few quick ideas to help hold yourself accountable so you can take what you’ve discovered off the page and into your everyday life.

This book contains prompts about:

  • Your past, present, and future
  • Relationships
  • Family
  • Work
  • Goals
  • And more!

If you’re looking for an in-depth guide to journaling, this book isn’t for you. But if you’re ready to get started NOW and just need some prompts to encourage new insights and ways of looking at your situation, you’ve come to the right place.

I love journal writing, I always have and always will. As mentioned this was a free download but I wonder if that is the downfall? And why I failed to connect with this author’s work. I found the prompts lacked depth to them, and that they were rushed, I found the whole eighteen paged book to be rushed! The promise that the blurb showed personally I didn’t find in the pages. Self-reflection should be about pondering things that are under the surface, from the 111 options, I found about a handful that would really make me reflect and pick up a pen. Overall, it’s not bad and free so you can’t complain. But, if you’re looking for something that will really push you to think, and reflect deeply and maybe even learn something new, personally I could not find it here. Three stars.
