spending wasting some time on Pinterest lately, but I think it is a good time-waster, if there is such a thing.
What have I been pinning?
journals, journals, and more journals!
All this pinning, well, it has me excited about journaling and bullet journaling. And I found this great blog called Little Coffee Fox. If you want some great examples of bullet journals you need to check out this blog.
Everywhere I go I seem to be running into journals…
at T.J. MAXX
at Home Goods
here, there, everywhere!
And, I want to buy them all! But, I have my own journals here at home and I told myself that I would not purchase another one until I filled up at least one journal. So, I broke out my Erin Condren journal and got writing.
I’ve been writing my “morning pages” while the house is quiet and the fur kids are frolicking around their room. I’ve also seen other SOL bloggers write about morning pages (shout-out to Molly & Michelle) so they have served as an inspiration.
Then, I dabbled in creating my gratitude page. I figured I would start with the month of August and jot down a gratitude a day.
My goal – fill up my Erin Condren journal by the end of the 2016. And, consequently, I did the math by counting up how many blank pages I have left in the journal and how many days are left in 2016. My goal is quite attainable I’m happy to report!
But wait, there’s more!
I can’t help but to show you the other journals that I have been keeping for some time now. They are what the teacher in me would call a “scaffold journal”. They already have templates in them and I just need to provide the words without worrying about structure.
Here’s my Believe Training Journal. I *heart* it. This is my second one and it works really well for tracking my training runs, races, and cross-training. It’s motivational and it just so happens to be in my favorite color!
Then there’s my One Line A Day Journal and my Reading Journal. I love the One Line A Day Journal because it is a diary of sorts for five years. I love looking back at what I was doing on the same day several years ago. It’s a five year journal and I’m already on year three! The Reading Journal allows me to write down books I’ve read and what the book is about. Both are fun and simple!
Yeah, I got ‘um!
How about you?
