When I don’t want to bullet journal

I went through a phase last week where I really didn’t want to bullet journal. Didn’t want to waste my time with it. I just wasn’t feeling it, and that was that.

So, I didn’t do a damn thing in my bullet journal for a couple of days. I just let my bullet journal sit in my bag. I didn’t go into panic mode either, searching for another journal to write my lists in, because I knew this feeling would pass.

It’s like my monkey mind resisting me making progress.

A couple of days later I wrote pages for each of the dates I’d skipped, and started to journal about the things I’d done on those days, and then started to write my daily page in the usual way.

This kind of resistance, from a brain that REALLY doesn’t want you to do what has kept you sane for the past years, is something I’ve come to expect.

It happens when I start overthinking decisions, or when I really don’t want to do something that’s been on my list for weeks on end.

One of the things that was on my list for a couple of weeks this time around was setting up this website. So now I’m blogging again, and the front page is almost done, as are the sub pages 🙂

So in a way me not wanting to bullet journal is my weird way of getting me to do things I’ve been wanting/needing to do for a long time.

What can I say, I’m weird!
