Hey guys, gals, and everyone else!
Does anyone else use journals? Like day to day diary type journals, or even the really popular bullet journaling? I actually use three different journals/writing things to keep myself organized. Actually four if you include my Erin Condren blog/fitness planner. It’s kind of a lot I know. If you want to know how and why I use so many-Keep reading!
So as I began to write this post I realized I left out my EC planner that I use for blogging and fitness reasons. BUT the three journals/planner you see above are ones that actually travel with me everyday. If you’re interested in how/why I use two planners you can check out my post here about it!
These lists range from hairstyles I want to try, to my bucket list (which you can read about here!), to places I want to travel with my love! ❤ I also have a section that’s specifically for ‘blog’ lists…but that is being transitioned over to my next journal of sorts!
So the turquoise notebook is my blog journal. I got it for about $7 at Target! I just love the gold dots. They have it in pink, black and white as well ( I think I might go back and get the rest). In here I have put all my blog post ideas ( I have 160 ideas here if you need some inspiration!) I also include goals for my blog (soon to be blogssss) It basically has all my hopes, dreams, and plans for this crazy blogger life.
This is my gratitude/thankfulness journal! I actually got this idea from the Erin Condren planners. Basically each week there’s a spot for a short thankfulness message. I had read a couple articles about how writing your happy thoughts makes you happier. So now everyday, or when I can remember, I write down 3-5 things I’m thankful for. Sometimes it’s major life events, like my aunt getting a heart transplant!, and other times it’s just that I have enough money to get to work that week.
AND if you didn’t know, I love suns. So the message on the back of this notebook is adorable to me. I got this notebook at Michaels craft store for $1.50! A great deal in my opinion. I also like to accessorize it with this magnetic paper clip!
Some people think these are a lot of things to carry around with me, but I don’t mind! For the job I have now (for like the next 5 days) I have a huge bag I have to use. These are all pretty small so they don’t take up a lot of room. Plus it’s really nice to look back at what I was thinking each day. I also like having all three because I can just jot down whatever thought/idea I have right then and there! I don’t have to wait till I get home and then end up forgetting. Blechk!
Do any of you use a thankfulness journal? Has it help make you more optimistic? Let me know down below!
Stay Sunny ❤
