I wrote this list today to remind myself of all of the things I want to include in my personal journal, I did this while waiting for my YouTube video to load!!! It is almost done now. So, here is how I spent some of my time in between scouring the house for guests who aren't coming...
Things to Journal About
v Lists, lists of everything and anything, just write lists!
v Horoscopes, because they are often wrong but sometime insightful
v Mail Log, won’t it be nice to see how much mail you’ve received?
v An Index, because sometimes you might want to refer back to that horoscope
v Addresses, so if you are ever lost of\r on the go, you have them!
v Weather, the mild and the shattering
v Life’s Tidbits, whether you think it important now, or not, you will later
v Photos, the silly and the serious
v Goals, whether they be life long or just for this weekend, accomplished or not
v Quotes, to match your mood or uplift it
v Recipes, the yummy and the horrifically awful, include them all!
v Stories, you love, to write, have read
v Poetry, whether they are wondrous works of your own or of others
v Lyrics, of your favorite songs or of your own, we experience through music
v Dreams, to reflect on and marvel at your unconscious imagination
v Drawings or Sketches, because no one else can interpret like you can
v Plans, either for the future or just for today, what do you hope to do?
v Accomplishments, so you remember to pat yourself on the back
v Happenings, what’s going on around you, be the nosy neighbor
v Ideas, we have so many ideas!!! Write them down, all of them
v Charts, whether they be serious or just for fun, experiment
v Graphs, see reason above!
v Water Colors or Paintings, because happening across something colorful is fun
v Memories, so those who read about you later will get a sense of your past
v Book Reviews, so you can keep track of what you’ve read and WHY
v Movies Reviews, so you can be that awesome friend to recommend it
v Places to visit, write out all of the details of a “hope to happen someday” trip
v New Things, whether it be new knowledge or something you saw, archive it
v Assignments, either school assignments or ones for life, yours and others
v Blessings, so you remember to be thankful
v Prayers, so you don’t forget to fill you universe with good vibes
v Experiences, whether they be profound or very simple, write them down
v Happy Thoughts, to be revisited when you are feeling down
v Headlines, because we learn from the past
v Wishes, so you don’t forget to hope and work towards making a better life
v Emotions, to either hold onto or to purge, it’s therapeutic
v Mantras, to help you stay focused and determined
v Reflections, so you may have a deeper insight into your life
v Fears, so you can find a way to banish them and heal
v Facts, so you can be a smarty and win pub quizzes!!!
v Lessons whether to be taught to others, or important ones you have learned
v Maps, because well, maps are just fun… And they could come in handy one day!
v Events, crazy weddings, bah mitzvahs, comic con, whatever! Write about them
v Predictions, whether your own or those of others, about you or our universe
v Epiphany’s, so you can learn from them!
v Realizations, most often the simple realizations in life are the most profound
v Love Stories, because everyone loves a good love story
v Milestones, the day you had a root canal, got apocalyptic highlights, all of it
v Jokes, a practiced joke teller is a good joke teller, laughter is food for the soul!

I can't believe it is already the day after... Thanksgiving!!! How have all of your holidays been thus far? My life has been über busy. Working full time for the first time in 8 years has been hard. I find myself trying to sleep less to be with my family more while also still trying to keep up with all of my household duties, school and passions like reading and penpaling!!!
Thankfully my current journal/planner have been helping me keep sane. I will be doing a new video tomorrow about my current setup and how much I love it!!! Guys. I am almost finished with an entire journal!!! Sure it's a small sized Field Notes. But as many of you know. I tend to have journal/planner fails. And I have NEVER even come close to filling any journal. So I am super excited.
Hopefully I will find some time for some new SHOP goodies!!! Right now I still have quite a few mini journal kits as well as finished journals. So if your holiday shopping. Check them out!!!
And happy holidays guys. I hope you are having an amazing season.
