Obviously, I’m talking about myself.
Are you aware of this new-ish thing called bullet journaling? It’s kind of like a journal/day book/to-do list but it’s super pretty and very artistic.
Here are just a few examples of bullet journals that I snagged from Pinterest:
Basically what you do is, get a journal with no lines, some I’ve seen use grid paper, and you just draw out your own datebook. Create a legend, colour code it, add “books to read” or “movies to watch” pages, etc. Who has time for that?! Seriously. Like sure, I guess once you get into it, it might be worth it.
But we all know I’m crazy. And I fell in love with this idea. Yet, I’m also not exactly very artistic. Nor do I have the patience to sit down and achieve that level of insanity. But it’s still been in the back of my mind for months now. Probably just another reason for me to buy another journal. This is also one of the reasons that I decided to improve my handwriting (see here and here).
This past week, I was also re-introduced to the idea of a gratitude journal. You know, every day you write down at least 3 things you are thankful for in your life.
Well – being the completely sane and rational person that I am (I’ll pause here for a quick minute while you gather yourself up after the outburst of laughter which I am sure just escaped from your lips) I decided to marry the two ideas together!
After church today, I was out with a friend and bought myself a new journal with plain pages. Do you know how hard it is to find a journal with blank pages? No lines? It’s hard!
Then I got home and promptly sat in the kitchen with my pencil crayons and markers and created this:
The last picture I took in my room after posting to Instagram. I am so thankful for this blog and the community that has grown around it, that I had to add it there on the bottom (which is also why it looks all wonky and instead of it saying NLFF it says NO LFF because I added it super quick while sitting in bed and not at a table).
I’m not sure I’ll add words each time, but I wanted to try out some of the fonts I found online. I just hope that I can keep this up. I have a feeling that in about a week this journal will be pushed to the side and forgotten. But I have a tiny shred of faith in myself to keep it up. I thought the same about this blog and I’m almost at 2 years now!! Will I be able to keep up with the blog, my new gratitude drawing project, and my secret double life? Only time will tell.
What are you thankful for today?
Happy Sunday folks!
