My quote journal or words of wisdom, I started this project at the end of 2016 and can I tell you that by 2020 I now have a priceless collection of quotes. Every year I come up with a theme. I found it was a lot easier to concentrate on specific quotes than just randomly quick them as I found them. It also helps me avoid duplicates. The list of themes gets shared here on my blog as a freebie for those of you who like to follow along.
Every year I change themes and I also change the medium in which I record them. In 2016 started with a handmade journal, in 2017 I used a 3 ring binder, in 2018 I decided to use 2 standard size traveler’s notebooks- this year I decided to give away my quote journals, yes1 give them away. As part of a giveaway on my IG account and for hitting a big milestone I gave away the first 6 months of quotes and I just recently gave the second traveler’s notebook to a dear friend.- For 2019 I am using a personal size planner by Webster’s Pages I love the small size and the fact that I can add as many pages as I need. I did end up using two planner binders to fit all the quotes.
I find this quote journal project so helpful. There are days when I need inspiration, not just creative inspiration but also life inspiration. Words are so powerful, they can hurt you deeply and they can also make you feel like a million bucks. Why not surround yourself the right kind of words
I ofter film my creative process when I am working on this journal (ok, this binder) You can visit my YouTube Channel and browse through my collection of videos. I hope you find spiritual inspiration as well as the creative type.
Here are some powerful words to remember. The past can not be changed, opinions do not define your reality, everyone’s journey is different, judgments are not about you, overthinking will lead to sadness, happiness is found within, your thoughts affect your mood, smiles are contagious, kindness is free, it’s ok to let go and move on, what goes around comes around, things always get better with time.
If you are wondering where I get my quotes from, the answer is Pinterest. You can visit my page and find the board “Words Of Wisdom” I categorize my quotes according to the themes of each month. You can find tons of quotes and literally get lots in quotes, so proceed with caution.
