“For things to change, you have to change. For things to get better, you have to get better. For things to improve, you have to improve.” ― Jim Rohn
My school years may be way behind me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get excited about school supplies…
My personal addiction? Stationery, specifically journals.
While packing for my move this past summer, I asked my best friend to stop me from buying more journals as I had found so many beautiful unused journals.
For some reason, there’s just something about saving a beautiful journal to record the beginning of a new era, the start of a new project/course, or a special milestone.
As school begins for many soon, there’s just something inspiring about this time of the year.
Establishing new schedules and getting back into fresh yet familiar routines while hanging on to the wonderful summer memories is a fine line.
However, when a new school season begins, it feels like a renewed sense of energy. And while we feel like we’re in the third quarter of the game, it’s the promise of a new season. To boot, it also feels like there’s plenty of time to start over and still accomplish your goals before year-end.
As I reflected on my old school days, I realized that as convenient as technology is, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of pen to paper.
I was so meticulous with my paper planner from the local Credit Union when I was in college. Every homework assignment, big project, event, and birthdays were all in it. I accomplished SO much with that method that I wish I had kept at least one planner to look back on my busy yet exciting young adult life.
With a new season here, what better way to organize your life, intentionally fill your calendar with events you want to experience, and check off all your to-dos than with crisp, new, and beautiful minimal stationery?
