I didn't buy my journal until the first week of July. In other words, I missed all of the adventures I had that first week. They may even be forgotten sometime in the future, but from here on out, I'll be able to have reminders. Seeing as how things evolve, I know my journal will evolve too. Maybe it will turn into a weekly format. I don't know, I might get so fancy that it turns into a monthly format. We'll just have to see how that goes. For right now, I'm cool with the disorganized mess that is my bullet journal (#bujo for short).
For the end of July, I decided to focus on one thing each day that made me happy. Well, that is how I decided to end my first month in the bullet journal. If you take a look at the photo, you will see that I decided to go with a partial sun design and even used bright colors to get my message across - happiness. For each day I did my version of the bullet journal in July (which is all but that first week), I picked the best thing I did or best event from that day. When I have one of my down days, and believe me one will always come, I will have something to hold in my hand to look back on and see happiness!
I know this type of bullet journal is absolutely weird to some of my fellow #bujo peeps, but it is working for me right now. Like I said, I'm sure it will evolve and get more creative as time goes on. But for right now, I'm just going to enjoy this style and continue to do a positive page each month.
Here is my question - how do you #bujo?
