Bullet Journal Diary: Part 1

Listening now….

Guys- the peepers are back getting ready for warm weather! Have you heard them? They are still the most relaxing sound ever to me…Also I thought this sound was perfect for this post since bullet journaling is therapeutic for me and relaxing and I wanted you to also feel that as you read.

 

If you guys read my last post, you may have seen that we put in an offer on a house. Well, we found out we got the house this Saturday!! YAY!

With good and exciting things in life comes a lot to do and a lot of planning. The last 2 weeks have been extremely stressful and there is even more involved with buying a house than I ever thought.

So, right now, my life needs more planning than ever.

 

 

I have always been interested in Bullet Journaling but always thought that you had to know how to draw to be good at it.  With my Happy Planner, I found it really hard to keep up with because if I missed a week of planning (which was a lot of the time, let’s be real) I just felt guilty and like I lost motivation to keep going at it.

With bullet journaling I find it so much easier because one you make a layout, a lot of it is just updating it as you go. You can come and go as you please and feel like journaling.

Of course I had our Young Living Essential Oils Diffuser going while I was bullet journaling- if you missed the post where I talked about it, check that out here .

If you are interested in getting your own, make sure you read that post and use my mom’s code!

A lot of bullet journaling is creating “collections” and here I have created a habit tracker and a weekly to do list.

I love the idea of keeping track of my moods, habits, and memories and have found it really helpful so far.

I created a category for my Poshmark closet to keep track of what I thrift, for how much, and how much I flip it for to make a profit on Poshmark.

 

You can find a ton of beautiful Bullet Journal inspiration online- especially Pinterest.

 

Here are some beautiful Bullet Journal Inspirations and examples of pages I want to create…

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your bullet journal spreads and tips! I think that perhaps I was overthinking it. I might have to pick it up again because I like the structure-less feel of bullet journaling and the fact that it’s nice to create it however you see fit. Also there are spreads that are simply unavailable in my Day Designer that I’d like to have added.

    Hope you’re having a great week, momma, and YAY! I’m so glad that everything is underway with the new house! SO exciting!! We’re still out there every weekend, and it’s exhausting BUT I do think that’ll be worth it in the end. I mean, it better be, ha!

    • Yes the main tip I read was not to overthink it!! So that’s what I have tried… I usually bullet journal with a glass of wine and make mistakes, then just stick washi tape over it ;p lol But I look up ideas and then model it on my page and thats so much easier because it’s less open ended!
