Ik ben helemaal klaar voor een nieuw seizoen 'Wie Is De Mol'!
Nog nooit eerder hield ik zo'n uitgebreid molboekje bij. Ik ben benieuwd of ik nu eens wel op het juiste spoor beland!

Kijk jij WIDM? En hou jij een molboekje bij?
Happy New Year everybody! I hope you've had a lovely evening and a great start to 2019.

The end of the year is for me always a time of looking back, see in bird eye view the things that happened, that mad you smile and made you cry. The things I've learned over the past year and in what parts of my life I've experienced/established positive growth.
I picked 3 words that described 2018 best for me: confronting, personal growth and enjoying.

And now we have an entire new year in front of us, with many opportunities we can use for our own blessings or to be a blessing to others.
I'm curiously excited to see what 2019 will bring.
But it also makes me a little scared. So many chances to take and choices to make. Will I be able to make and take the right ones?
But hey, one step and one day at a time. The day of tomorrow has its own worries.
Merry Christmas to all my followers.
I hope your days of celebrations will be merry & bright. May God bless and keep you and your family.
A new month in a new @leuchtturm1917 notebook.
From the wisdom I take from The Bullet Journal Method by @rydercarroll, I'm changing things up and experimenting with new ways of logging and using my journal. Curious to see what works and where it will be heading.
Today I'm starting with setting up a new journal.
I thought I'd be able to finish the year in my current journal, but with all the notes I'm taking on The Bullet Journal Method there won't be enough room left for December. However, I'm not including in the calendar I'm opening my new journal with, but I'll add a calendar in my monthly log.

Do you start a new journal in January, like @rydercarroll suggests in his book? Or just whenever your previous one is filled?
There's always room for mistakes. Or room to somewhat fix the mistakes. Or make another mistake in trying to somewhat fix it, like I did here...
I know many Bullet Journalers can be very upset when something is misspelled or didn't turn out right. I could too in the beginning, but now I'm embracing the mistakes. It's part of the process and I don't think mistakes like these deserve my negative energy of being bothered by it. Seeing this now makes me giggle and then move on.
How do you handle mistakes in your journal?
#throwbackthursday to my frontpage for last month that I never got around to share with you.
Last month was also quite minimal, however I still did use pictures and washitapes for decoration. I must say I have mixed feelings, I like how using three pens this month pushes me to be more creative, but I'd also like to use some stickers and pictures here & there. I think next month is going to be a mix of both.
I've changed my monthly log back to how the @bulletjournal system was designed. And I like it, this way I have a much better sense of how busy a week or the entire month is.
It took me some time to fill the page on the right, but finally I did manage to do so. Swipe left to see what it looks like now.
The November setup in my Bullet Journal comes with a challenge.
I've limited myself to use only 3 pens the entire month: 1 black Staedtler fineliner, 1 blue Faber-Castell fineliner and 1 fountain pen filled with petrol blue ink.
So no cut out images, no washi tape. Just to go back to the basics, focus on what I want my bujo to do for me and how I can make it work. And of course decorating is allowed, but only with the use of these three pens. So I expect to be much more creative myself with this instead of using external materials to decorate. (Ok, I already failed here by using some leftover wrapping paper for this front page, but for the rest of the pages I'm doing well so far) πŸ˜†

Have you ever gone back to the (almost) bare basics for your journal? How did it go? Did it help you?

P.S.: I know I've been a bit MIA in October, but I'm planning πŸ˜‰ to give you more updates and insights this month. Stay tuned & hit the follow button to see it all!
Today is an exciting day, because I got myself a copy of The Bullet Journal Method!
I'm super curious to dive in to it, but I promised myself I'd first finish another book that also deserves my undivided attention.
Anticipation is half the fun, right?

Do you already have your copy? What do you think about it so far?
After a week of health struggles with my lungs, I finally started feeling better today. So I got to do some swimming, very very slowly. But hey, I went and that's great!
And to celebrate a little and take some time ton write & read, I treated myself a cup of tea @villa_augustus 
#vandaagistraag
Almost ready for a new week. Only some planning and appointments to put into this weekly log.

I'm really loving this combination of green and some gold accents. It's calming & stylish with a pop. πŸ˜„
