Daily Journaling Prompts for July 2021 {Reviewing Your Goals}

Daily Journaling Prompts for July 2021

I cannot believe how fast June has flown by. It seems like it was just April and now it’s already July. Wow!

I haven’t been posting very regularly lately and it will probably be that way for the next few weeks. For those of you that are new here, my daughter is pregnant and due on the 10th so we are super excited and can’t wait to meet the new baby.

I will have Little Man while she and her husband are at the hospital and want to finish up a few more updates that I’ve been working on all last month. I will probably only post on the blog once maybe twice a week but I will still be here if you have any questions, requests, or just want to chat. I will probably be a nervous wreck for the next few weeks 🤣

Now on to the prompts…

I’ve been thinking about creating a PDF version you can download each month. What do you think? Would you download it? Let me know in the comments.

Once a month I will give you a list of journaling topics for every day. This will give you some new ideas for what to journal about and take the pressure off of trying to find something to write about every day.

Some days will be the same each month. For example…

At the beginning of each month, we will concentrate on setting our goals. Even if you did this earlier in the year, things change, so it can be a good idea to re-evaluate and update your goals each month.

In the middle of the month, we will see what progress we’ve made so far. This is a chance to re-focus on any goals that may have slipped off your radar.

At the end of the month, we will take a look back and write about the good things & favorite memories from the month. We will also evaluate our goals progress to see what still needs work in the upcoming months.

All of the other days will have new prompts to get you motivated!

What’s your word this year? Drop it in the comments and I will add it to the list of themes I’m putting together.


This month is all about your goals and the progress you’ve made so far this year.

We’re going to look at what you intended to accomplish, see how far you’ve come, what has changed, and what you want to accomplish in the rest of this year.

We’ll take it step-by-step so it doesn’t become overwhelming and by the end of the month you will have evaluated your year so far, decided what you need to do in the next 6 months, and create a game plan.

We will also work on your goals for July too.

Ideally, you would journal a paragraph or two about each day’s prompt.

Be as creative as you like here…the sky’s the limit!

Journaling Prompts for JULY 2021

  1. What do you want to do this month? Write your goals for the month, and think about what you need to do to accomplish them.

  2. What are you excited about in the coming month?

  3. I am thankful to live in America because…

  4. What was your favorite thing about today’s Fourth of July celebrations?

  5. Take a look at your goals from the beginning of the year. What did you want to accomplish this year for work, personal, relationships, school, etc.?

  6. What have you accomplished so far this year? Write a list of your successes, big or small.

  7. Look at yesterday’s list of successes. Write about how you were able to accomplish these tasks and achieve these goals.

  8. What sacrifices did you make in order to reach your goals so far this year? Did you spend less time with friends and family to grow your business?

  9. Who helped you this year? Write a list of people who helped you succeed and/or reach your goals. Try to think of everyone who helped or gave you any form of assistance this year. Friends, bosses, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Tag this list for future reference.

  10. What has changed since the beginning of this year? Write about how your life is different now than how it was in January. Have the COVID restrictions have been lifted in your area? What’s your “new normal” look like right now?

  11. Now look again at your goals for this year. What goals have become irrelevant or no longer important? Write them down and give yourself permission to let go of them.

  12. Take a few minutes to revise and update your original goals for this year. You’ve let go of what’s irrelevant and you know what you have and have not accomplished so far this year. Make any adjustments to your goals that will help you accomplish what you want for the rest of the year.

  13. Now clarify your goals for the rest of the year. Write your goals for each category of your life: work, education, family, personal, health, relationships, etc. (grab a free printable Level 10 Life Worksheet here)

  14. For each of these goals, write down the steps you need to take to accomplish them. Create a mind map or a brain dump to come up with some ideas for your process.

  15. Come up with a timeline for each of these goals. How long do you expect each step to take?

  16. Mid-Month Review: We’ve been focusing on your annual goals, but how are your goals for this month coming along? What can you accomplish in the remainder of the month?

  17. Looking again at your goals from the 13th, rewrite your list by priority. Which of your goals are most important to you? If something comes up and you have to let something slide, which goals would you choose to focus on and which ones are less important?

  18. Write a list of changes you will need to make to accomplish your goals. Do you need to start meal planning to eat healthier or create a new fitness routine? Do you need to create a budget to fund your goals? Write down the changes you need to make and be sure to write what the positive outcome will be! Refer to this later when you need some motivation or a reminder of why you’re doing these things.

  19. Write some reminders of why you want to accomplish your goals and put them in prominent places where you will see them often. In your planner, on the fridge, at your desk, etc. Take this prompt one step further and create a vision board of what your success will look like.

  20. Write about the things that make you feel successful.

  21. Is there anything holding you back? Negative self-talk, money, etc. How can you turn that around and make those things work for you instead of against you?

  22. Create some positive affirmations to help keep you motivated. “I am Brave, Bold, and Beautiful and I Believe in Myself!”

  23. Look back at your timeline for each goal and all the steps that need to be completed. Write a plan for each month for the rest of the year. What can you do each month to stay on track and reach your goals by the end of the year?

  24. Now break down your monthly plans even further: what are the benchmarks you want to have accomplished by the end of each month? What do you need to do each week in order to complete your monthly goals? Create trackers if you think they will be helpful to keep you focused or you can grab my new Habit Tracker Bundle here.

  25. Schedule the goal tasks you need to complete in the upcoming weeks into your planner. Look back to your lists if you need help or motivation.

  26. Take some time today to review everything we’ve gone over this month. Are you happy with your plan or does it need a couple of adjustments?

  27. Yay, you made it! Take a break today you’ve earned it. Or, sit outside in your favorite spot and do some free writing.

  28. What will you do to enjoy the rest of the summer? What are you looking forward to?

  29. What good things happened this month? What were your favorite moments?

  30. Month in Review: What lessons did you learn this month?

  31. Month in Review: How did this month go? Which goals did you complete? What do you still need to work on?
