Why I Quit Bullet Journaling!

Hey there! In my last post I had announced that I stopped bullet journaling. That was a big deal for me as I had based this blog on Bullet Journaling so if I stopped Bullet Journaling I would have no content to post. That inside argument in my head turned into a whole 5 month fiasco until I realized that I should write content based on what I enjoy. If my audience changes that it ok but I just want to write about something that I care about, not something that I dread to write about.

The reason that I stopped was simple. I just did not want to do it anymore. In the beginning it was fun and I enjoyed getting my day started by planning my day out. I still do enjoy that, but that lazy side of me was so tired of do the same old thing every morning. Don’t get me wrong, I love structure but that may be why I stopped bullet journaling. I had to much freedom and I did not know what to do. I could sit there for hours just trying to think of a cool font to use or which color my header should be. I am not saying that you should not bullet journal, I am just saying that it takes a certain kind of person. On some particularly eventful days I may whip out my bullet journal as someway to organize my life but the truth is I don’t live a busy enough life to want to put so much effort into my to-do list. I know bullet journaling is more than just a to-do list, but that was my bullet journal’s main job. After about a month of bullet journaling I decided to give my self a little break. That little break led to me never picking it up again. Just because I did not stick with bullet journaling does not mean that just gave up, it just means that I moved on from something that was holding me back. My days were starting to get unproductive and I was starting to resent starting my day knowing that I had to Bullet Journal. I thought that I had to write in my Bullet Journal for the day if I wanted my day to be productive. I realized that I do not need to Bullet Journal if I wanted to be productive, I just needed to put effort in. That is not to say I will never pick up a Bullet Journal every again, but right now I do not need one. Maybe in the future when my life becomes more go,go,go and less where are my ear buds I will have the need for that level of organization Now this all may sound very dramatic, but that is what I do! Plus it makes it more interesting to read so it is a win-win.
