A couple of weeks ago I took a stab at bullet journaling. Have you seen this?
It’s a streamlined pen-and-paper way of organizing your calendar, lists, thoughts, and journals. I saw the link on Facebook, watched the video, and I was in.
I committed my most beautiful unmarked journal to the project, thinking perhaps this would help me in my follow-through. You see, my follow through with journals has a terrible track record.
My collection of half-filled journals:
I scoured my apartment to find every last one. Some had craft ideas, or personal writing. Some with poetry, others with career goals and lists.
All abandoned prematurely.
That’s why I liked the idea of bullet journalism. It had a system. A pattern. And it was a place were I could commit all my disjointed ramblings and thoughts that came up through the day.
So I went all in.
Beautiful brand new faux leather journal.
Crisp, white blank pages.
Fancy ribbon bookmark.
But the system would only work if I could commit to using it daily. Can I do this?
“I can do all things with Him who give me strength.”
So I wrote in it. Pen.
Now THAT’S commitment.
And now we’re a month later.
Are you curious to see if I’ve followed through?
You’re going to have to wait til tomorrow! In the meantime, what do you think?
