There's always something to be grateful for, although it is not always very obvious at that moment or you just feel shitty. Keeping a Gratitude Log helps me to keep an open mind when it comes to being aware of things to be grateful for. Even on days I can't name anything, it reminds me that I've been given a life and privileges every single day.
Underneath all the not-so-happy feels, you can accept to live in God's grace. He will care for you, He gives you every breath you take.
For the monthly setup of June in my Bullet Journal, I've used pictures from magazines and some paper scraps to decorate.
A simple and quick way to add a lot of ambiance to a page.
In this picture you see my June frontpage.
I'm spending my afternoon in prison today. 😱
To be exact: @blokhuispoort in Leeuwarden and don't be worried, it is not in its original function anymore. Nowadays there are several cafe's, creative shops and a library in the buildings.
After a walk around and in the prison, I'm now in a comfortable seat in the library @dbieblwd, warm and cozy, with the wind howling outside.
For the first in a long time I've swum 2 km in less than an hour! πŸŠβ€β™€οΈ
I used to swim almost weekly for over a year, but the past few months I've had trouble keeping up with it both physically and mentally.
For the past two weeks I've been kicking my ass back into a more healthy pattern and I'm proud of today's accomplishment.
However, the first thing that came to my mind when I finished the 2k: oh well, there were many factors contributing to this success: having a 50m lane all to myself, some nice paced music and a new bathing suit which makes me more aquadynamic (yes, from today on that's a thing...). I was placing the reason for this accomplishment outside of my own effort, instead of acknowledging that me and my perseverance are the main factor that made this happen. πŸ’ͺ🏻
So, big shoutout and pat on the back to myself. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š
A fresh and new month in my Bullet Journal. Ready for all the plans, appointments and celebrations off June.
Bought these pretty and ecofriendly bamboo cups today. I'm so pleased with them! 🀩
It's never too late to share May's frontpage. Especially when it contains hand drawn poppy flowers. 
Swipe for an overview and close up picture.
Are you ready for the Eurovision Songcontest?
I definitely am.
Fingers crossed for our very own @itsduncanlaurence πŸ€žπŸ»πŸ‡³πŸ‡±
I've been prepping my bujo for March today in the library of Haarlem.
Took myself on a date today with the train and in a bit I'm off to treat myself to some fika. β˜•πŸͺ
My habit tracker for this month.
By the time of this picture I'd just set it up, but by now it's almost entirely filled. I might share what it looks like now later today in my stories. 
Have you also checked out what @vivacady has done with this months Winter theme? You should, she made lovely doodles!
It's not anywhere near snowing here today. I just got out of the house and was greated by a lovely bit of sunshine.
But since this is the last Winter month and I love this quote from Gilmore Girls, I decided to use it as my front page for February.

This months Winter theme is in collaboration with @vivacady, visit her feed to find out what she's done with the theme.
A new month, new chances to share more of my Bullet Journal here. I know, it's been a while.
But this month I have double the excitement, because @vivacady and I teamed up to challenge eachother. We've come up with a theme for our monthly setups and we've chosen Winter.
Throughout the month we'll reveal more and more of how we each implemented the theme, so make sure you go give @vivacady a follow!
