Now, confession time: I did not journal AT ALL in March. My pretty bullet journal didn’t get touched. I just didn’t find myself reaching for it. I think it did impact my mood slightly. Not having that time to reflect on the day and find something positive in every day wasn’t there. I’m going to try and be a better bujo mammy this month. So far so good. It looks like nothing is filled in yet, but that’s just because I took the pictures at the beginning of the month. I’ll show you the end product in May’s bujo!
So yes, confession time over!
Here we go…
I’m a little bit in love with April’s title page. The weather so far has reflected this, so it’s an apt title page. I’m loving exploring and experimenting with fonts (I’m not GREAT, but I’m trying!)
Next are my mood pages. On the left I have my monthly mood tracker – I’ve gone with little yoyos (who knows what they are, I kinda like them though!). I’ve only gone with 6 moods this month, I’m STILL toying with the ones I feel most (I’ve said this EVERY month for the past however many months… please help me out here guys!). On the other side of the page is the trusty old sunshine of gratitude. I’ve since added a quote to the middle of my sunshine. This is becoming somewhat of a staple gratitude page for me, I just think it looks so effective and it’s not that complex to set up (unless you’ve got a 31 day month, then the maths is a bit harder!).
As ever, on the right, I have my trusty book post page. I’ve been a bit lax filling these in over the past few months. I always remember who/when I got my book post, but I wanna keep a track of this better so I can post it in my monthly round up. Let’s hope I can make my brain let it happen! (Also, LOOK AT THE FANCY PANTS WRITING I DID. I’m pretty chuffed with it). On the left, I’ve created myself a blogging page. I’ve no idea if this will work or not, however I am finding that I have blog ideas more often now and writing them in my phone does not always prove successful.
Finally (for now) we have the trusty old weekly spread. I’ve tweaked it a bit since the last time I filled it in (see my confession). I’ve stuck with my mood tracker because this is not going anywhere. I’ve added a reflections box (the smaller purple one at the bottom) and a kind of master to do list (professional and personal columns). I have 700 million things to do at all times.
And that’s all for now! I really do hope I can get back into my journaling groove. I missed it. Going back and colouring in these pages made my heart very happy. I love colouring in!
Have you ever lost your journaling groove?
What is your tip for getting your mojo back?
What moods do you track? (since I can’t decide!)
Let me know in the comments, or on twitter. I’d love to know that I’m not the only one who has ever lost my bujo mojo (haha!) As ever, I want to point you in the direction of Kelly’s Ramblings bujo posts because they are #bujogoals.
