Start simple. Build slowly. Your practice doesn’t need to be profound, or beautiful. It needs to be real, relevant, and effective. Most of all, it needs to be yours.
I thought I’d do a theme for this year’s NanoPoblano, and the theme I chose is journaling. It’s something that’s been on my mind for a long time. It’s something I used to do long, long ago, and something I know in my heart I need to get back to. Baby steps, right?
To begin, I started Bullet Journaling. It’s been rather haphazard for me. Not the Bullet Journal part, but the follow through. I realized I really have no idea how to set goals. I have spent so many years being a wife and mother that my goals basically consist of household chores and I kind of suck at those now. Laundry is not a goal.
When I started Bullet Journaling, I decided that there was no way I was going to include household chores or meals in mine. To be honest, that doesn’t leave me much else to bullet about. I track days and lunar cycles and the weather. I’ve started a few things I want to habit track.
I am trying to get better about this. I read Ryder Carroll’s book and that helped a lot. I am still a bit unsure about the goals part though.
I don’t do a lot of decorating in my Bullet Journal. I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler, lol. But, I have a color code system for the days and months, and even the rooms I plan on working in that day. I like to use different colors to do the layouts for different months. I have learned that at the very least, it gives me a sense of direction and grounding to my days. I like the structure. I keep hoping the follow-through will catch up with the planning-to. Eventually, I hope to get to that point of feeling like I finally have my sh!t together, lol.
What about you? Do you Bullet Journal? Do you have a planner system that you use? Does it help?
