looking forward • staying focused • finding gratitude

One of my intentions for the new year is to get better organized.

Between working two jobs, and the writing program, I’ve had very little time to create any visual art, and I seldom schedule in some time to simply journal. My days feel like they speed by at light speed – I hardly slow down for long enough to take stock of what I’ve done and where I’m going.

Last year I thought keeping a bullet journal would be a good idea but I never followed through (mostly because I was stuck on the notion that I needed a proper squared journal to do it right). So I got one at some point this summer but it has been sitting on a shelf, patiently awaiting a time when I could focus on it and begin setting it up.

I saw some pretty intimidating bullet journal spreads on the interwebs – very crafty and creative – but I decided to forge on after rewatching the original bullet journal video.

So here is my first little header for December. It’ll be nice to slow down for long enough to take stock of my days and envision where I want to navigate. It’s been a long time…

This week I’m mostly off on vacation. I’ve been so tired lately that I can’t even speak straight. (For example, yesterday morning I started my cashier shift at 8AM but I was sending off the first several customers with “have a great evening”.)

Today will be a PJ Day… taking stock, organizing my schedule for the rest of the week and maybe getting some laundry done. Between naps and daydreams. 🙂

Wishing you all a restful and centred Winter Solstice. ❤
