I've talked about this in the past, and I truly believe that it's better to have one bullet journal for everything. It's easier to keep everything in one place and therefore it's less likely to get confused and frustrated going back and forth various journals. So, you might be surprised that I have created a bullet journal specifically for my blog.
Today's post is inspired by a post that Lisa from Market Your Creativity did a few years back.
Our fears can hold us back from doing the things we want. A lot of times we feel that we are not good enough or creative enough and therefore we are scared to unleash our potential. We constantly beat ourselves up, thinking that somehow we should be more, do more, be better, because we don’t measure up in our own mind.
Today I'm going to talk about a subject that's very close to my heart. And that is breast cancer. Unfortunately, cancer has affected many members of my family. My mum was diagnosed with a very aggressive type of breast cancer in 2008 and after a long battle she's cancer free for the past 7 years and I'm so grateful for that. That wasn't the case for her twin sister... My aunt was diagnosed in June 2016 and she lost the battle to cancer in May 2017... It has really affected all the family and we miss her so much...
I was contacted by Julie, who is a breast cancer survivor, to create a weekly spread with the pink ribbon. I was very happy to create one for her, and I thought that, since October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I could share it with all of you.
September has been a very productive month full of new beginnings and focus on new projects. My trusty bullet journal was there to help me plan everything as usual. Last month's set up worked pretty well, and therefore you'll see that I've kept a lot of the spreads almost the same. So, let's get started!
Once again I'm excited to announce our Instagram Challenge for the month of October! It's the #doodlewithusinoctober2017 Instagram Challenge created by me and Alexandra (from @alexandra_plans).
It's going to be 31 days of doodles that will hopefully get you to be creative and have fun! The theme of October's prompts is 'Halloween'. This theme is perfect for this time of the year and I seriously can't wait to start drawing!
Lot's of people contact me on a daily basis to ask me about my favourite supplies and what pens, markers etc. I'm using to create my spreads in my bullet journal. I've created a page of my favourite resources where I talk about all my favourite things. But I've decided to create some blog posts where I review and showcase my favourite supplies individually. In today's post I'll review my current favourite highlighters - the Zebra Mildliners.
Goal setting is a very important part of my life. It keeps me focused and it gives me purpose. After doing the 17 Before 2017 goal setting last year, I decided to repeat it this year as well. It is a concept that I've seen in Kara's and Lisa's blogs. It is an end of the year goal-setting challenge, where you look back at what you've accomplished during the year so far, and see what needs to be done before the end of the year. So, if you want to finish 2017 strong, what better way but to create 18 goals to accomplish in the time that's left (no pressure there!)
Even though I didn't manage to finish all of my 17 before 2017, I loved the concept because it put me in the right frame of mind. After going through all the sections of my life and what needs to be done, I've managed to narrow it down to 18 goals that I'd love to finish before the end of the year. I tried to keep things under perspective, but also to be more daring and ask more from myself.
In this blog post, I'm going to share with you all my goals that I want to achieve before the end of 2017. So, let's get started!
