It took me a little longer. I needed to research journals because while I always buy my girls blank paged journals to draw in, write in, doodle, apparently I never buy one for myself. I ended up getting a black moleskin from Target. Then even when I had it I kept looking up ideas rather than just getting started. One of the things I read was if you don't like how a page turned out you have the rest of the journal to make something you like better. So it is good for perfectionists like my oldest who spend hours on something and then end up crumpling it up, throwing it away and not starting again. It is a wonderful way to journal for kids and adults. It is allowing our creative sides to come out and I find my kids BOJOing with free time after homework, at the lake and in their rooms. The possibilities are endless for page ideas and pinterest is a wealth of ideas if you run out of your own. Be it a gratitude page, to do list, organization chart, bucket list or exercise plan. Bullet journals allow you to organize your thoughts and ideas and life in a colorful, fun, inspiring and just for you kind of way. It was just the kind of creative inspiration I needed to start the year off right!
