September always feels good, doesn’t it?
I think I still associate it with back to school, even though I haven’t been back myself in years. It’s an exciting month that’s full of possibility.
And because it’s another new month, we’re back with a new Map My Month — a fresh downloadable journaling sheet for you to enjoy. I love to see how you’re all feeling Map My Month in action in your lives!

Why Monthly Journaling Sheets?
Every January, we’re all so energized and excited about the possibilities that lay ahead of us. We have that new year pump up.
I love that feeling! And I know lots of people who feel the same.
But what I don’t love is the whole “new year, new you” vibe that tends to surface every January as well. In my opinion, the you that you are is all you ever need to be, if that’s how you want it. No “new” version needed.
But! What a new year does also provide us with is the chance to get into the mindset of a fresh start. It can be really so lovely and refreshing to find a mentality of being open to new possibilities, of being present, and of being intentional.
It also creates space for us to dream and grow. To look quietly inward and explore the genuine goals of our hearts, and to excavate our internal lives to discover what we truly want for ourselves.
Map My Month
So these Map My Month journaling pages are a chance to get into that mindset not just on January 1, but every month. They’re a way to keep that spacious feeling of presence and intention, all year long.
It’s so kind to give ourselves that chance to reset, and find grace for who we want to be moving forward.
It’s also an incredible opportunity to practice a little self care, and give yourself your full attention, even for just a bit.
Each month, on the 1st, I create and share a free downloadable guided worksheet. (You can download it at the end of the post.)
The monthly prompts will be the same, but we’ll focus on a different prompt each month and really dive deep on one of them. It’s a way to look at each question in a new way, and perhaps discover something you didn’t realize about yourself.
I’m so excited to see how our responses shift and change over the course of the year.
September’s Focus: Reaching Out
In August’s Map My Month, we focused on preparing to meet challenges. We examined the month ahead to identify where we may encounter bumps in the road, either literally or figuratively. And then we brainstormed some ways that we could mentally prepare ourselves to meet those challenges.
This month, we turn our focus outward.
Yes, it’s wonderful to look internally and discover things about ourselves, but it is equally wonderful to look outward and invest in the people that we love.
As you work on your Map My Month worksheet this month, give a little extra thought to the portion that asks: One person I’ll reach out to this month, just because.
As you consider it, think of the people in your life. You could have any number of people come to mind — friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances. You might find that one person in particular sticks out for some reason. Go with your gut and jot that person’s name down.
And keep in mind that “reaching out” can mean so many different things! Perhaps this person needs your help in some way. Maybe it’s a person who you’d just like to sit with and catch up. Or it might even be somebody to reach out to about an idea you’ve had or a project you’ve wanted to start.

Here’s what to do next. Find a quiet space for yourself, and get into a mindset of openness and possibility. Go through the rest of the prompts on the worksheet, using as much time as you need.
If you plan on participating in Map My Month each month, I suggest you get a binder or a folder to keep all of your worksheets in one place. You can look back at your progress and reference past months’ Maps to see how your year is progressing.
You could even add it to your Intention Blueprints binder if you did those last year!
Share Your Thoughts
Have you been following along with our Map My Month series? I’d love to know whether this is your first, or if you’ve been participating since January. Either way, I think there’s so much to gain from a simple exercise like this one.
Little investments in ourselves like this can encourage us to think in new patterns or explore new ideas. It’s a simple way to bring some intention into your months and to really feel like you’re present in your own life, which is a good feeling.
Have fun! xoxo
