How To Find Your Passion – Free Journal Prompts Printable

There is absolutely nothing more therapeutic to me than writing.  I mean, at least aside from a sappy love story, a good cry and a bottle of wine. Today I am going to help you Find Your Passion with this awesome journal prompts printable.

Those things might just come pretty close to being every bit as good as journaling. Note that I did say “maybe” though. I’ve been a writer since long before my blogging days, and loving the craft as much as I do, I honestly just can’t think of much of anything that could replace it.

Similarly to those who create music or art, the love of writing is something that I developed when I was young and that I can completely lose myself in. Early morning before the rest of the house is  stirring, late evenings after everyone has gone to sleep, those are the times that I do lose myself in writing blog posts, responding to emails, or corresponding with friends near & far. If I’m not doing any of those things, then I’m most definitely journaling.

Here are some of the questions included:

  • What was your favorite thing to do as a child?
  • As a child, what did you want to be when you grow up?
  • What can you talk about for hours?
  • What skills come to you naturally?
  • What makes you forget to eat?
  • How do you want to be remembered?
  • If money were no object, how would you spend your time?
  • What makes you feel alive?
  • If you could not fail, what would you do?
  • What is working well for you in your current job/career?
  • What three things did you enjoy doing today?
  • What results bring you the most joy?

Each of these questions serves as a prompt to dig deeper into one’s interests, skills, and desires. They are designed to provoke thought and inspire action, guiding the individual toward a clearer understanding of what truly ignites their passion.

The Importance of Journal Prompts for Finding Your Passion

Journal prompts like these are incredibly useful tools for self-discovery. They offer a structured way to engage in self-reflection, which is often the first step in identifying one’s passions. By answering these questions honestly and thoughtfully, individuals can gain valuable insights into their own preferences and inclinations. This, in turn, can serve as a roadmap for pursuing activities or career paths that are genuinely fulfilling.

For example, the question “What was your favorite thing to do as a child?” can reveal long-forgotten interests that might still hold significance today. Similarly, “What can you talk about for hours?” can help identify topics or subjects that captivate your attention, indicating areas where your passion may lie.

Practical Application

If you’re looking to find your passion, consider setting aside some time to answer these questions in a journal. Write freely and don’t censor yourself; the goal is to get to the heart of what makes you tick. Once you’ve answered all the questions, review your responses. Look for common themes or recurring ideas that could point you in the direction of your true passion.

You might also consider discussing your answers with a trusted friend or family member. Sometimes, talking through your thoughts can offer new perspectives and may even lead to an “aha” moment.

Finding your passion is a journey that requires introspection, honesty, and a willingness to explore. Journal prompts like the ones in this PDF can serve as valuable guides on this journey, helping you uncover the interests and activities that bring you the most joy and fulfillment.

The thing I love most about being able to journal is that there is no limitation to what you can do or what you can write about. There have been days when I have poured my heart & soul into the pages of my journal. Then, there are days where I’ve doodled endlessly or written a silly short story.

I write when I’m happy, I write when I’m sad. I write down important dates, memories from my childhood. What I’m getting at is quite simply that a journal is a safe place for writers. There is no judgement to hold us back, and no prying eyes to dissect what we choose to put upon the page.

If you knew how many people were new to journaling or who have never journaled in their lifetime, you would be a little shocked. If you knew how many people believed that they had to be some maestro writer to be able to journal, you would be even more surprised. Regardless of your skill or your time in the journaling trenches, you can find enjoyment in the hobby like myself and so many others.

It can be intimidating when you first get started. You’ll probably wonder what on earth you’re supposed to write about or if there’s a certain format you need. Well, as someone who has been there, I would love to share an idea for a printable centered around Finding Your Passion.

In this printable I’m going to provide my readers and aspiring journalists with several writing prompts that I think might help you dig deep. These prompts are thought provoking, and profound. They might even teach you things about yourself while you’re writing, that you never knew. You will receive the practice you need to open the flood gates of creativity that will take you where you want to go with your writing skills.
