Bullet Journal Diary: Part 2- Focusing on the present

Listening now…

 

I have been using my bullet journal more than ever lately. What I have realized from the time I have had with it so far is that it has been helping me focus on the present more.

 

First post here- Bullet Journal Diary: Part 1

 

I think we could all use a little help being able to focus on the present more.

To breathe. To be mindful.

 

Except dogs- they have that pretty down pat. They just run and they don’t think about it. They chase the ball- not knowing if they will get it or make it in time.

Just go for it.

 

I can’t believe it’s May already. I feel like this year is definitely going by faster than last year already.

Please excuse the pictures below as Molly stepped across my journal with her muddy feet. =P

Washi tape is still my best friend when I make mistakes.

 

Another thing I love about bullet journaling is the ability to look back and see what you have done, how you have improved and made progress (especially using these habit trackers), and remembering your memories. It feels pretty good to fill in boxes for good things like exercising, meditation, no alcohol, etc.

I have been tracking my self care, moods, and habits. I find it easier to be consistent with the journal compared to planning because once you do one of these for the month, you just fill them in day to day.

 

I got this tea cup mood tracker idea from Pinterest but really love how it came out.

How cute is this?!

The Bullet Journal has been wonderful for my mental health as well. Good habits on the tracker boost your self esteem and hold yourself accountable and looking back at your mood tracker helps you to realize even more that we are all human! That means- the good days and the bad.

Back to the blogging world

Listening now…

Now I’m running late
And I’m not a coffee drinker,
But I lost sleep just thinking of you.
So pour me a cup,
I need to wake up,
I need me some love.
Now give it to me.”

Love this song.

I want to be like this. Sittin’ with the fishies, relaxing, not stressing about the future.

She is not worried how she will get up and out, she just sits.

She enjoys the moment….

Letting the chaos wash around you. But not consume you.

 

So happy to be back to the blogging world and focusing on this again. I have realized that blogging helps me live in the present.

I can’t wait to share my summer adventures with you all and read about yours!

This weekend we have our favorite Farmer’s market that I featured in my first ever written post on here.

And here, too.

So I will be sure to blog about that with many pictures again.

 

And I finished my class off with an 85, even though I am pretty sure I am pursuing other things.

After the relief of that was over, we attended a family wedding, which was beautiful. I did not take too many pictures, but we did manage to hit up the photo booth. [Classic.]

Next week we go on vacation on a camping extraordinaire trip to Virginia Beach and then to Ocean city, Maryland. While I will not be blogging while there, I can’t wait to share the adventure with you later!

 

What kind of adventures are you getting into this summer?
