Gratitude Journal

5 bullet journal ideas

What are you grateful for? Showing gratitude makes me feel good and makes me appreciate what I have. I am grateful for my family who shows me so much support with anything and everything. I am grateful for my son and my husband. In a gratitude journal you can be as creative as you want. Write down what you’re most thankful for every day. In a year go back and read what it is you were grateful for the most. We should show gratitude more often than once a year. We should appreciate others year-round. Here are some prompts to get you started.
Today I am grateful for…
I am grateful for this person in my life…

Inspiration Journal







When you think of the word inspire what comes to mind? I think about making someone feel something within themselves. I think of creativity and how there are so many ways to express it. Whenever you have a thought, write it down. Here are some examples on how to be inspired

Take Photos of things you like

Read books that make you think or bring out your creativity

listen to inspiring music

Read inspiring stories

go to an art museum

Song journal

I absolutely love all kinds of music. Especially songs that are happy and inspiring! Why not create a song journal and write down how you feel when you listen to the songs you love. It is a great writing exercise too. Here is a list of Happy songs to get you started. In a year you can go through it and see if you still feel the same about your song selection or see how it has changed. What songs inspire you? What songs get you pumped up and ready for anything? Remember those feelings and write those songs down. Music is my go-to when I am stressed, upset, need to feel inspired or happy. What does music do for you?

Goals journal

I get really unorganized on most days. Especially with goal setting. I have an endless to do list, like most do! (chuckles) So if I ever get around to it, I plan on keeping a goal journal. Write everything down that I want to accomplish and then categorize it by Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and yearly goals. Do you have a book of goals? How do you prioritize your goals?

If you are not a pen and paper kind of gal here are some apps I find very useful

Google Keep
You can type stuff in quickly.
You can color-code your activities
write out to-do lists
set reminders

Google Tasks
Keep track of your daily, monthly, or yearly goals
Set reminders
mark off your lists as you finish them


Self Care

I struggle with self-care. I preach it..because it is important. What are your go-to self-care routines? If you do not have any.. it is best to start some. I am going to work at this myself because without your health it will be hard to do anything like accomplishing your goals or spending time with your family. HEALTH is everything. Take care of yourself girl! This is on my to-do list!
Take a walk

read a book

take a bubble bath

Eat some fruits and veggies

Do something daily to take care of yourself. You and your family will thank you.


Let me know if you find this list useful. I want to help you become more organized and less stressed!



Sharing is Caring!
