Journal Prompt: I am thankful for what I have because…?

Hello my loves! I wanted to start utilizing my bullet journal better so I began to think of questions I could ask myself and write out the answers to better understand myself. I thought this would be a good process to share a lot of people have problems with self-awareness and knowing their true self. So I hoped this would help us all learn ourselves better and shine light on what we need to work on wishing ourselves.

I am thankful for what I have because…?

I’m so thankful for all I have because I know that I have a lot to lose. Understanding that if I’m ungrateful, and God takes everything from me I’d literally be left with nothing humbles me so much. I’m so in love with my little family, close friends, and overall living situation. I’d be so lost if I didn’t have everything and everyone that has been placed in my life.

Why are you thankful for what you have?

God has placed everyone and everything in my life at this time for a reason. It is my job to continue to be thankful and humble and continue growing and learning.

Overall

I hope you all get a clearer understanding of yourself in these prompts. I hope a door opens for you that you never thought you could open.

August Favorites


Can you believe it’s that time again! Goodbye August and hello September! Today I’m sharing my August favorites including beauty, music, and lifestyle! Let’s hop in!

Beauty

Freeman Anti-Stress Clay Mask ($9.75)

This has been my absolute favorite mask to use to clear my skin and prepare my skin for the week ahead. I’ve noticed fewer breakouts and my skin is baby soft after I rinse it off.

PraySlayHustle Drink it up Facial Oil ($12.00)

I’ve been using this Drink It Up Facial Oil for over a month now and I cannot put it down! It’s the perfect amount of moisture for my skin without me looking like an oil slick. And the best part? This oil is made by a black owned business and is super affordable!

Amuse Cosmetics Eyebrow Pencil ($6.98)


http://amzn.to/2vAOX8g

I’ve been loving this eyebrow pencil for more natural brow days! My pencil is in the shade Dark Coffee . No makeup makeup has never been more simple! This product stays matte all day and will not budge!

Music

I used to have a very diverse taste in music. So when I ran across Lana Del Rey I was instantly drawn in. Her soft soothing voice and lyrics have a sound and tone for everyone. Her recent album, Lust for Life is an everyday staple. From the time I wake up, to the time I go to sleep if I have my earphones in 9/10 I’m listening to this amazing artist!

Lifestyle

Yoga


Yoga with Adriene

This month I began a 30 days of yoga program on YouTube from HOME. Its changed so much. I’m more energized after I’m done, so I’m able to get so much more done everyday! Yoga with Adriene has been an amazing program and I love waking up early every morning and completing the yoga program for the day.

Bullet Journal

My bullet journal has grown to be my best friend. I love having everything written down and organized in my journal. Bullet journaling is perfect because it gives you the opportunity to customize your layouts to what you need as opposed to the journals that already have sections in them.

August| Bullet Journal Set Up

The thing I love most about bullet journaling, is that I can set it up however I need. I can use habit trackers if I want to this month, and next month I can completely leave them out! The customization is endless! I really don’t have time for fancy setups and doodles, so being able to use a setup with little to no fluff is great for me! Lets hop into my August spread!

Cover Page


My cover page is very simple this month. I used blue and pink pens to create a circle and blue marker and pens to write August in the center of the circle. I then created an overview calendar at the bottom of the page so I had somewhere to always see the full month laid out.

Goals + Setup


The next two pages in my journal contain my goals and my business, blog, and YouTube plans for the month. I always try to set 4 short term goals to achieve in the month. This month’s goals haven’t been set just yet, but I’ll be doing a post on them soon. My Business, blog, and YouTube planning areas are where I’ve realized I spend a lot of time brainstorming, so I dedicate half a page each.

Weekly Setup


My weekly setup for August is simple. I have a box for each day of the week on one side, and a place to journal on the other. I’ve found myself wanting a little more space in my journal to write down general thoughts or things I want to remember or meditate on in the future.

Instagram Tracker


I’ve officially be come “That” blogger. I’m currently wanting to grow my Instagram page and engagement! I’m now scheduling and planning my posts out so that I have a clear view of what works and doesn’t work for my Instagram!

Do you keep a bullet journal? What are your favorite spreads to incorporate?

My First Bullet Journal: June Setup📖

Hello lovelies and welcome back to my corner of the internet! 

When I first saw people’s bullet journals floating across Pinterest and Instagram I was instantly OBSESSED! I love the idea of having a creative space, you customize yourself to keep organized and to keep so in the future you can look back and see what you were up to! I debated for YEARS on starting one of my own, but decided against it as A. I cannot draw to save my life and B. I couldn’t think of how having a journal would keep me organized when I didn’t even use my homework planners in high school! But after a lot of thought (and wanting to just jump out on a limb and try it) I’ve set up my very first bullet journal! Today I’m sharing the set up I’m going to ATTEMPT to use in June to stay organized, on top of chores, and to just have a creative outlet. So let’s hop on and take a look at my June setup!


This is the journal I chose to start with. It’s really a regular notebook and I wouldn’t recommend it for this type of project. I got this one to start off so just in case I decided bullet journaling wasn’t for me, I could put it to another use! 

The first thing you will notice are these tabs I got from Target to help me keep track of my months. Most journals I’ve seen do not have these, but I couldn’t think of anything more frustrating than flipping through page after page unable to find where I left off. This was my way of saving my sanity! 

The first page of my journal is just an overview calendar. Just a nice way to keep track of the days without having to dig too deep into my journal. 

The next pages I have my goals for the month and I’ve decided to separate my days so I have enough space to write any to-dos for the day!

At the end of the month I put a space for any video ideas and added a little motivational quote at the bottom of the page. 

The next page as you see has a mood tracker and a space for blog ideas. I wanted to include a mood tracker to see how often I’ve felt whatever emotion. The bottom of the page I attempted to draw a rainbow cloud. I told you guys I couldn’t draw haha!

The last page so far has a spot for anything business related. I thought it would be super important to have a space I could write out my ideas and plans for my company!

I plan to create a memories page looking back at the important and memorable things of the month and will do an update to show you all if I’ve kept it up or not. But, so far so good and I’m loving this as it’s my own little thing to put my spin on! 

Do you bullet journal? What are some tips you have for beginners?
