Why I shouldn’t bullet journal….

I had these grand plans to do a bullet journal this year.  I went online to Pinterest (I mean where else would I go to see ideas with unattainable standards?) and found hundreds of ideas and was very excited.  As the New Year approached, my resolve wavered.  It looked like a lot of work, more work than I as able to commit to; and I knew I was setting myself up for failure.  So decided to use a regular calendar book.  I already had a bullet journal, so I wasn’t sure what to do with it.  I decided I would use it to track things like books read, our debt (and hopefully watch it go down), track my moods, how many hours I sleep each night, and which days I do quiet time.  So this morning I sat down to start this endeavor… I started out with a bang having to rip out 2 pages because they weren’t  perfect. The finished result isn’t “perfect” but it’s not as bad as the 2 I ripped out, and I couldn’t stomach the thought of having to redo 2 pages because of a tiny error….

Here’s my “mistake pages”

And the finished product

I didn’t include our debt pages, that’s just too depressing.. and personal 😉

We’ll see if this works.
