2018 OLW Bullet Journal

My 2018 One Little Word is Visionary. This year I really want to step into my role as a visionary to help improve the lives of women with the knowledge I have to offer. My first part of doing that was launching The Body Love Art Journal class this year to help women make peace with their bodies and get creative. To track that and other goals centered around my One Little Word this year, I decided to make a bullet journal! 

This bullet journal is where I keep track of all my monthly goals centered around my OLW and my progress on them at the end of each month. You can see a process video for how I put together the start of this bullet journal on my YouTube channel here

2018 One Little Word Bullet Journal

Intro to my One Little Word Bullet Journal- I used a cute notebook (similar here) and got to work personalizing it. If you watch my YouTube process video, you'll see how I get creative and draw lots of flowers and floral patterns to create some of the gorgeous layouts in this new bullet journal. I started off this bullet journal with an entry on my 2018 One Little Word. I included the definition of my OLW, what it means to me, and how I want to live through it this year. Then I listed out my annual goals and created a cute vision board for my OLW and for my year.

PS. Here's the process video for this bullet journal!

Using my Happy Planner as a Diary

There are infinite ways to use your planner. Some use it strictly for planning appointments and to-do lists, some use it for memory keeping. Lately, I've taken to using it as a diary or journal. I love this method because it's perfect for looking back at later. Especially if you've fallen behind on your memory keeping. You can go back to a certain week or date and see exactly what happened that day and look up quotes and how you felt on that date so you can journal about it properly in your scrapbooking or Project Life album. Awesome, right?

In the pages below you'll see a mix of diary entries in my Happy planner. Classroom and workshop notes, what I did that day, to-do lists, etc. It's basically free-writing or brain-dumping if you do that haha. I've also blocked out little bits of journaling that were a little too personal to share. :)

Having a daily practice of free-flow writing is so therapeutic. It's great for productivity too. Once you get all your random thoughts and to-dos down on paper, your mind is able to focus on one thing at a time. It's been a super great way for me to use my Happy Planner lately. 

What about you- what's your favorite way to use your Happy Planner? Let me know in the comments below!
