Bullet Journaling – Goal Setting {lifestyle}

therabbitandtherobin Bujou _ Goal Setting 0

Its becoming Autumn so lets take a hint from nature and turn a new “leaf” this Autumn. As the Trees start shedding lets shed some bad habits and start good ones.

One of the good habits that come with Bullet Journaling is written reminders of your goals.

You can use your Bullet Journal to Log and Track your Goals, but first you need to set up your goals.

It’s tempting to choose goals that your friends and family aspire to achieve. You might think this will be impressive. Sure, they might be impressed. But unless the goal is something you really want, you probably won’t have the drive to make it happen.

Set goals that you really want and need. Write them down and think about it, sleep on it if you must. Come back and choose a few you want to complete.

Goal Setting

Here are some ways of setting your goals. I use this 5 step method.

Then break it down into sections of your life as it applies to you, for example Personal, Relational, Professional, Health, Blog and Financial.

Write it Down

“When you write down your ideas you automatically focus your full attention on them. Few if any of us can write one thought and think another at the same time. Thus a pencil and paper make excellent concentration tools.”

Michael Leboeuf

Keep a Positive attitude

Its easy to get discouraged when you fail to meet a goal. Don’t be to hard on your self some goals need more time and experience. Others might be easier to achieve. When you have a bad day read over your goals see how far you have come and try harder tomorrow.

My Creative Bullet Journal {lifestyle}


Bullet Journaling can be so much more than just making your day productive.
If you are familiar with the Bullet Journal System then here are some ways to make it your own, if not then first go to my previous Post about Setting up your Bullet Journal.

Once you have setup your journal, then you can get creative and experiment with different styles.

This Step is what makes the Bullet Journal Special, you can completely customize it to suit your needs and adjust as you go along or as your needs change. Some months you need space to plan events and others you just need a basic journal format.

Lets Start with the Basic Pages, your Index, Year Calendar, Year Goals and Tasks and Future Log.

Your Habit Tracker is a very handy way of Tracking your Habits and to add little “Daily TO DO Reminders” like taking your vitamins. This way you can see and track all your habits and improve them the next month.

Every time you make a new entry, you come back to your Index and add the Page Name and Number. This is an easy way to find anything in your Journal.

Your Future Log is for all your Important static dates and events that you know of long ahead of time. Here you can easily view them and plan ahead. Start by creating a six or twelve month log. Count the dots on your page and divide them by thee, draw a line and write each month at the top of each section. Continue by logging your important dates.

Your Monthly is for all your Goals you want to reach and Tasks you want to complete during that month. The one page will be your calendar, write down the month followed by days and date.
On the opposite page Log all your tasks for the month.

therabbitandtherobin Bujou _ Getting Started 6

Your Daily Log, this is the heart and soul of your journal. You will use this daily, start with writing down the header, day, date and month.

Your Bullet Journal Key consists of your basic Journaling indicators. a Dot is a Task, O an Event, Dash is a Note, Asterisk for priority, X it out when it is completed, forward arrow when you did not complete it and Migrate it to the next day or a back arrow if you schedule it for a later date.

When you complete your tasks for the day draw a line and start with the next day.

TIP: Make a Typography page in the back of your Journal. Write with each pen the pens name. This way you have a record of all your pens and you can see how they react with the paper.

Happy Sangria Day {foodie}

Celebrate Sangria day on the 20th
or Everyday can be Sangria Day

There are so many different recipes for sangria you can change it up as much as you like. This drinks variations centers on the type of fruit, the presence or lack of carbonation and the kind of alcohol added, if any at all.

ela bo (@et.voila.ela)

You can add any fruit you prefer, the key is to use fruit that’s in season in order to get the best flavor. So while citrus and berries are the best for sangria, also consider fruits like peach, pineapple, mango, melon and apple. For the yummiest Sangria let the fruit marinate in the wine a day ahead or at least a few hours before serving.


(@pakhi_rayin) /div>

You can add a few shots of your favorite liquor and a splash of orange juice.
If you’d like to add bubbles, consider soda water or a citrus flavored soda. Some sangria lovers add honey or sugar as well.

While connoisseurs say it’s important to use a good quality red wine to get the authentic flavor. Sangria can also be made with white wine and is known as sangria blanca. In some parts of Southern Spain, sangria is called zurra and is made with peaches or nectarines.

Add your personal touch by garnishing your Sangria to match the Season or Celebration.



White Christmas Sangria

2 (750 ml) bottles your favorite white wine
1 pomegranate
2 oranges, sliced thin
200g cranberries, about 1 1/2 cups
