What is A Bullet Journal and Is it Right for You?

Bullet journaling is all the rage right now. Pinterest is filled with ways to decorate your bullet journal and many people swear by this organization/journaling method. So, how do you know if a bullet journal is right for you? 

First, what is a bullet journal? A bullet journal is a method of journaling and note-taking that uses bullet points as the core structure. Instead of writing long sentences you write in bulleted points. You can use any blank journal or notebook and it is truly a combination of a journal, planner and to-do list. Because you use a blank journal or notebook you can get super creative with the layouts, décor, and colors as you decorate it. Search bullet journal on Pinterest and you will see great examples of minimal to highly decorated bullet journals.

Here is a list of who would benefit from a bullet journal: 

  • People who have a million to-do lists at all times
  • People who prefer pen and paper to app-based planning 
  • People who love goal-setting and habit tracking
  • People who like stationery, journaling, scrapbooking, beautiful pens, etc. 
  • People who really love planners
  • People who are creative and like to decorate, draw, doodle in their planners
  • People who would really like to keep a journal/diary but are having trouble sticking with the habit

A bullet journal can be a simple blank book or a creative outlet for you. If you love the idea of combining your journals, planners and to-do lists it is worth a try. A bullet journal is truly what you make of it and unlike pre-printed planners or journals it can be customized to exactly what you need in your life at that moment.

I was becoming an empty nester, a woman of a more interesting age and in transition. Sound familiar? I was at that place where we question our purpose, value, and worth and what in the world are we going to do with the rest of our lives.

I noticed women have a huge hunger to belong to a community of women where they can feel safe, share openly from their heart and have other women to do life with! This is why I created my Fave Lifestyles.

Fave is for the woman who wants to call Fave her community of women who support, uplift, and make her feel better about herself. I want to create a place where we help her answer life's questions and just do life together!
