Hello everyone to another monthly set up. I think that it must be the first time EVER that I won't say that the month just flew by. In fact, I felt that May was a very loooooong month....! It has been a very busy and emotionally charged month. With lots of new beginnings: new bullet journal, new work possibilities and a brand new website! It was also my birthday month, and that always makes May a very special month for me, with lots of lovely memories. However, this month I lost a very close family member and my heart was broken in pieces. It's things like this that come to wake you up, remind you of what's really important in life and to be grateful for every single day.
So, tomorrow June makes it's appearance and I'm all ready and set up in my bullet journal in order to make this one, the best month ever! Let's get started.
The little penguin makes his appearance once again at the cover of the month, because clearly he was very missed in May. I'm happy with the colours and of course the cuteness of the penguin :)
The next page is my Monthly Focus. I decided to divide the page in 4 sections: Personal, Goals, Blog, and E-Course. This way I am more organised and focused on each category. (Sticker used from my Etsy Shop)
Moving on, the next page is my Month at a Glance. I changed it to a bigger layout this time and I really like how it looks. There is some space for notes at the bottom right corner as well. (Sticker used from my Etsy Shop)
I've decided to have a Brain Dump page for each month from now on. It was getting a bit complicated going back and forth to previous pages. This way I can easily check it out more often when I'm checking my Monthly Focus or my Month at a Glance pages. Hopefully this will also make me more productive :) (Sticker used from my Etsy Shop)
The Gratitude Log is back! I have to say that I really missed it last month. It's nice to spend some time at the end of the day and reflect on what you're grateful for. It's good for the soul. :) (Sticker used from my Etsy Shop)
Being vegan can sometimes make you feel that you don't have many food options. (Which is totally not true!) Especially if you are on a diet, you might feel like you're eating the same things over and over. And that's not a good thing! So, I've decided to look around on the internet and get more inspiration about what I can eat. Then I created a Meals spread with various meal ideas, categorising them in Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch and Dinner. That way, when I'm hungry or when I meal plan I can quickly look at this spread and get inspired. (Sticker used from my Etsy Shop)
(* Note: I have created a Menu Planning spread in the beginning of my new bullet journal, but that is mainly for the rest of my family that are not vegan like me. )
The last spread in my June set up is my Weekly spread. I really like how it turned out. Also, since I started my new bullet journal I've decided to avoid using a ruler as much as possible. And even though in the beginning the OCD part of myself was having some problems with it, I find it very liberating now! 😂 And I've come to like my 'wobbly' lines!!! 〰 😉
Hope this has inspired you to create some spreads in your bullet journal, and get it all ready for June. Which are the spreads that you add every single month? Let me know in the comments bellow.
