Hello, lovelies! I’m thrilled to be unveiling this month’s theme for the Boho Berry Challenge… gratitude!
This month, in addition to the information provided on the #BohoBerryChallenge page, I wanted to take some time to explain my thought process behind this month’s theme.
I’m also going to give you a bit more guidance when it comes to the prompts themselves.
>> PSST… For the full instructions on how to participate in the challenge, be sure to head over here.
Fall is such a great time for reflection… and what better way to reflect than with some gratitude? My Gratitude Log is one of my most cherished collections in my Bullet Journal each month. Approaching my life from a gratitude perspective is one of the ways that I stay so positive all the time, and I hope that it will help you to do the same.
I spent a long time putting together the #BohoBerryChallenge prompts for this month, and a lot of thought went into what topics that I chose to explore.
The challenge prompts (as always) are completely open to interpretation, but I’m hoping that a little bit of extra guidance might help you to get more out of the challenge this month.
OCTOBER GRATITUDE PROMPTS – EXPANDED
Remember, there are many different ways to participate in this challenge. It was created as a journaling challenge, so ideally you would journal a paragraph or two about each day’s topic. But don’t feel like you have to… one word is enough to spark that feeling of gratitude. You can be as simple or as creative as you like here… the sky’s the limit!
