With nothing on the horizon, and feeling rudderless, I booked a ticket to Costa Rica on Thursday and flew out four days later, on the Monday. I don’t really know what I’m doing here, or WHY I’m here, so I’m excited to find out.
Halfway through our life’s journey
I woke to find myself within a dark wood
because I had strayed from the correct path.
Oh how hard it is to describe
how harsh and tough that savage wood was
The very thought of it renews the fear!
~ Dante Alighieri, Divine Comedy
On the 5th, I finally pulled the trigger and booked the ticket, still not knowing at all why I was doing it, and then I read this on a friend’s IG page:
FEB 4/5th NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS
This is a time for cutting the cords binding us to anything that we know has been holding us back or where we are settling rather than thriving. It is also for making bold decisions that lead us to fresh new starts. – Alex Myles
So, there you have it, a few of my collections – I have others, like a Travel page where I have my airline membership #s, passport #, travel insurance info, etc, a Music page, etc, etc… – so, for YOU, you will just want to make collections for the things that you are passionate about! 🙂 Enjoy !
Happy 2019 ! To make a long story short, I spent a month in Frankfurt, Germany last year and as I wandered through various stationery shops, my eyes and hands kept going to the Leuchtturm journal displays. As an impassioned and committed journaller / world traveler, I am always looking for journals to record my life experiences in. I researched Leuchtturm first, before contacting them to see if they would sponsor me with some products for this glorious year, 2019, just to see what kind of company it was. It’s important that my principles align with companies I wish to use and promote. I liked what I saw immediately; a family-run company proud of over 100 years of service to the world. In each journal, you receive a signed note of appreciation for purchasing their products and information on how the company began and what it provides. Here’s a link to the US website: https://www.leuchtturm1917.us
This hardcover journal comes in blank, lined, squared, or dot grid paper. For bullet journaling, I always choose the dot grid first or the squared second. I never get lined paper for bullet journaling! This journal comes with a pocket, two bookmarks, pre-numbered pages, and a pre-built index. Plus there is a huge variety of colors, so you can always find something for your taste! I have bought this journal again and again, and I will always recommend it to newbies because it is worth every single penny.
I still have a lot to learn, and Bujo-ing is an ongoing process, but here are my monthly spreads for 2019 in progress:
There is still a lot more to do as I figure out how I want to organize all of my goals and everything, plus, I haven’t gotten a hold of any stencils yet, to give the layouts a ‘sharper’ look, but at this moment, I am content with where I am.
A big thank you to Leuchtturm for doing 2019 with me and I strongly recommend Leuchtturm to you, for any of your journalling / life organizing needs.
