17 Amazing Inspirational Quotes For Bullet Journals

I always looking for ways to make my bullet journal more interesting. I’m not an artist so drawing cute things in my journal is out the door, but adding words I can do! I find that when I read some encouraging thing each day. I think about that saying all day long. It really helps make my day a little brighter even when things aren’t going so well. I thought I would help you add some encouraging words with these 17 Amazing Inspirational Quotes For Your Bullet Journal. Check it out!

“Life is a series of baby steps.” -Hoda Kotb

I believe this so much, don’t overthink a big project, take baby steps to get to the finish line. Not everything needs to be done in a hurry.

 “Lead from the heart, not the head.” -Princess Diana

This is so true when you lead with your heart and not your head. Your life will have much more meaning. You will be searching your soul for the right answer, not what you think you must do.


“Don’t give it five minutes if you’re not going to give it five years.” -Meghan Markle

This one would be for if you are going to start something new, like a new hobby or perhaps you want to start a blog. If you don’t think you will invest five years in growing it, then pass it up. But sometimes it’s the journey to where you need to be. So give it your all, to any new hobby you decide to go after.

“Every day is not a success. Every year is not a success. You have to celebrate the good.” -Reese Witherspoon

Absolutely! Like I said before, life is a journey. Be in the now and celebrate the good things, let go of the bad.

“To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.” -Reba McEntire

I love Reba! I agree with this 100%, every night before bed me and my husband watch a funny show so we are always laughing before we go to sleep. It’s a nice way to end the day.

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” -Oprah Winfrey

I’ve always admired Oprah, go after those dreams. Even if it’s baby steps.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Life is a give and take, we should be mindful of paying it forward and to be good people when others are down. Maybe even paying for food in the car behind you at the fast-food drive-through. This happened to my husband the other day.

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan

This is my secret to success, try and try and try. Never Give UP, you’ll be a success at everything. Just some things don’t work out.

“It’s not what we have in life but who we have in our life that matters.” -Margaret Laurence

I agree again, we all need love and laughter, and we need to be with someone, even if it’s a pet.

“Embrace the glorious mess that you are.” -Elizabeth Gilbert

I think she was just in my house! I live in a glorious cluster of stuff, it gets shuffled in and out. But it’s an ongoing thing because I sell on eBay. My kitchen table is seldom cleaned off all the way. Glad I have a big one. Lol!

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” -Dr. Seuss

I’m in love with this quote! And being a mother that has lost her son, I’ve always cherished every moment. Look up from that phone and talk to your family. It might be the last conversation you have. Look out the window when you are in the car with your family. Be present when they are present.

“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.” -Carol Burnett

I say this all the time. Maybe I remember her saying this on her show one time but it’s stuck with me. We get tricked into believing that our loved ones are responsible for our happiness. No, they can’t read your mind. If you want to change your life, then get off the couch and do it yourself. I’m always disappointed during holidays, we don’t do much. So this year I’m making a change and celebrating the holidays by planning events we can go to. No one else is going to do it, now I won’t be disappointed anymore.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” -C.S. Lewis

This is an awesome quote! It’s never too late! Did you know that Angela Lansbury started Murder she wrote at 59 years old?

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” -Audrey Hepburn

We all need a hug, don’t forget to give them freely. Sometimes life gets in the way. But family is family we sometimes don’t agree. But we can still give them a hug. They know you better than anyone.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” -Albert Einstein

Sadly both of my parents forgot this message and stopped moving. My dad moves from his bedroom to a chair each day. My mom is in a hospital bed after a bad bought with the flu and she never got back up again. Keep moving!

Get a new hobby. I bought angora rabbits so I would have to go outside each day and care for them. Then each month I have to cut their hair, then I can make a glorious warm scarf with the fur once it’s been spun into yarn. I’m working on the spinning part and the bunnies are so cute and friendly. The love a pet each day from me. That’s keeping me moving.

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” -William Shakespeare

Wow, that’s powerful! I think my gift is to be encouraging. I’m pretty good at it and I give it away freely. If you need encouragement send me a message.

“The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go.” -Dodinsky

Absolutely. I gave up watching the news at night years ago. It really helps! They stopped talking about the good things in life. Guess that’s not what sells anymore. I would rather be happy.

How To Keep Your New Years Resolutions With A Simple Journal


It’s time to decide what goals you want to achieve this year. Writing down your New Years’ resolutions might seem rather silly, but it’s a great way to keep track of the things you want to get done over the year. I’ll show you how to keep your New Years Resolutions with a simple journal.

Writing down your New Years’ Resolutions really is a great way to narrow down your focus to one or two main goals. They are not meant to be something miraculous and life-changing (though they can be), but to take advantage of the new year with a fresh start. Maybe you want to lose weight this year, give up soda, start doing yoga or stop a bad habit like biting your nails. The options are endless.

When it comes to creating your New Years’ Resolutions, using a journal is one of the best tools at your disposal. It not only helps you decide on the resolutions but track your progress along the way.

How To Keep Your New Years Resolutions

What You Want to Accomplish This Year

Start by writing down everything you would like to accomplish this year. This might end up being a long list, which is totally fine. You are just starting with any idea you have in your head before you make your final decisions. Think of big things and small things, even if you don’t know that they will end up being a resolution. Consider your bad habits, something you want to implement, a goal you want to achieve, healthier lifestyle habits, a change in your routine, a place you want to visit, or a problem you want to solve.

 What You Feel Like You Lacked in the Previous Year

To add to your list of possibilities, write down anything you feel like you lacked or fell behind in the previous year. This can help you figure out where you want your focus to be, such as if you struggled with your finances this past year, you might want to look for a new job opportunity or work on your business more.

 Flesh Out Your Ideas

Go through and highlight or make a check next to anything that really speaks to you or you believe would make a positive impact in your life. Consider something you can do for the entire year, and doing that will help to make you happy or healthier, or just change your life in a positive way.

 Choose 1-2 Resolutions

 From this list, choose just 1-2 resolutions for the year. That doesn’t mean you won’t accomplish anything else, but you want just one or two main things to focus on. You might have some things that are good to do, but can be done in a shorter period of time, like starting to journal. Instead of that as a resolution, maybe you want to read 20 books in a year or lose 30 pounds. These are more concrete resolutions that you can track throughout the year.

 Track the Progress Throughout the Year

 Once you have your resolutions chosen, you can then use your journal to track your progress. Have one journal you use only for your resolutions, so it doesn’t get mixed up in your other journal entries.

I hope you got some ideas and enjoyed my article on How To Keep Your New Years Resolutions with a simple journal.

How To Write Your Feelings In A Journal For Healing

How To Write Your Feelings In A Journal For Mental Healing

Christmas is an emotional time of year for me as I’m sure it is for many of us. So of us think about friends and family that can no longer be with us and it makes us sad. But you know something that really helped me heal emotionally? It was to write out those feelings on paper. I’ll share with you how to write your feelings in a journal for healing a little later in this article.

Write Your Feelings In A Journal

Stress In Our Lives

Stress is a growing problem – not only in America but around the world. For many of us, it’s no longer something that pops up here and there. But we are dealing with chronic stress.

It takes a toll on your mind and body 24/7, making sleep next to impossible, the days drag on and life seemingly hopeless. However, many people prefer not to turn to pharmaceuticals to address this growing issue. I didn’t, almost… but chickened out at the last second after seeing my mom take those drugs for over 50 years.

Instead, I chose to heal myself naturally…mind and body. Everyone’s stress can be caused by many different things – we are all dealing with something in the world today with covid, high crime, lack of work, career, relationships, isolation, taking care of our elderly parents, and health woes to name a few.

Aside from natural remedies such as essential oils, spa routines, positive affirmations, and meditation, many people interested in managing and decreasing their stress loads have had success by writing those feelings down in a journal.

Fight Stress With Journaling

Journaling To Heal

In the past, journaling itself was one of the primary methods professionals advised as a way to handle stress. That’s what I did and I even wrote a letter to my son after he passed. Just a note to him, saying all the things I wish I could have said before he passed. It really helped.

I think journaling out my sorrow, frustrations, fears, and anger and the roller coaster of feelings I was feeling at the time, helped me deal with every emotion naturally. It was like when I wrote down what was heavy on my mind that day. I felt like something was lifted off my back, I didn’t feel so alone and depressed.

I lost my son in December just days before his 25th birthday. What a wreck I was at the time. 

The weird thing was that all of my friends completely ditched me. No one called, came by to check on me. Nothing, I think that was more than I could handle at the time.

But the one thing that helped me more than anything was to write out my feelings. All of them about everything. I burned them after a few years, they were not anything I wanted to ever read again. But the process of writing all those things out really helped me heal.

How To Write Your Feelings In A Journal For Healing

So how do you start writing your feelings in a journal for healing? Simple, go buy some writing paper, nothing fancy to start with because it won’t be pretty. You want to get every frustration out of your mind and your heart. All that baggage can hurt you not only mentally but physically.

Have you ever noticed that someone would complain of their neck hurting or chronic pain? Only to find out that they have a wife that is constantly nagging them. Wonder where Pain In The Neck term came from?

Feeling Down_ Write out those feelings in a Journal To Heal

Take out your notebook with plenty of paper, and a couple of pens. Then head out someplace quiet, where you won’t be bothered for the afternoon. You want to be totally uninterrupted during this time.

You are going to pour out your soul on paper. Write down everything that’s bothering you. Even pen a letter to that person that’s bothering you. Maybe you had a fight with your husband or child. Write them a letter. (this is why I burnt my notebooks) This is anger and rage that you’re letting go of. You need to let it out on paper, so you won’t blow up in person.

You’ll be so surprised at what you find out during these sessions with yourself. If you can’t think of anything to write, just write red roses over and over, then your mind with drift and you’ll start writing all kinds of things you didn’t know about yourself. This is your inner self showing you things you need to deal with and let go of, and if you are a praying person like me. You give these troubles to the Lord and ask him to give you joy instead. You’ll be amazed at the relief you feel after this.

Feeling Down Or Mad At Someone?

This time of year can be stressful if you are feeling down or bummed out at a family member. Write them a letter, don’t send it off course. But I mean let them have it, share how you really feel, let it all out. Then after you have fully told them what for. Take that sheet of paper crumble it into a tight ball and throw it in the fire. Please don’t burn the house down. You can just tear it into tiny pieces of paper and throw it away.
Sometimes we think about things over and over and the problem keeps getting bigger and bigger. But for some reason when you write out your troubles on paper, that problem you were having becomes smaller and smaller, especially when you crumble it up into a ball and then destroy it.
I read this someplace long ago. And I use it when I have some issue going on. It works! I wrote a letter to my dad when we were fighting one year. All that anger melts somewhat, and over time the troubling emotions go away completely. I never had a harsh word with my dad in person, (I did tell him what for in my letter, but he never saw it or knew about it) so we kept a good relationship after we both had a year apart because we’re both hard-headed. lol!
