Daily Journaling with Erin Condren
Journaling is such a huge part of my every day life. In 2002 I was in a very bad car accident. There is a lot of time that was lost, that I will never remember. Most of which is good, and is part of my brain coping with tragedy. Since that moment, I have this incessant need to remember everything. Honestly, no one can remember everything. Another coping tool that I have practiced since then is journaling. I’ve journaled for years.
This tool was therapeutic for me on many occasions. Some of those occasions were infertility struggles, depression, finding out someone close to me was battling addiction, and various other reasons. It has always been a way to release, to let go. A way for me to get everything weighing on my mind off of it.
Now, being a mom, I find myself wanting to remember the moments that go by so fast with Abby. The things she says or does. These precious moments are so fleeting. I now believe the wise people who have said to me “the days are long but the years fleeting.” There’s parts that I want to remember. I also use my journal to take the time out for much needed self-care. Time to express gratitude in my everyday blessings, to motivate and inspire myself to keep on keeping on.
Why Erin Condren?
Simple! I have always been an EC girl. Since 2011 to be exact. However after curating my own planner/organizer/notebook for work via the Arc system, I realized how I loved the ability to add and remove pages. So recently for my “planning” needs I switched over to a Happy Planner. I couldn’t just abandon my EC, they’ve been so good to me over the years. Add in the stickers, ohhhh the stickers, and her cute little compliment cards – I will forever be faithful.
I decided to use my EC planner as a way to document and chronicle my days. It makes a perfect little journal for a quick daily brain dump, or even as a tool to motivate yourself. I use it as a tool and I do that by utilizing the Erin Condren Stickers. I use the Classic Sticker Book, but have been eyeing up the brand NEW Monthly Sticker Book.
I set up my week with stickers that would make great journaling prompts and then I just speak my mind.
Then once I go through the week it gets filled up with my thoughts. I usually take the left column to write a quote that speaks to me at the moment, and the bottom right corner of this photo is a sticker from Crafted By Corley that I color myself. This process does wonders for me, and I know that next year I will opt for the horizontal layout for journaling purposes.
There is so many cute things that I would love to stock up on. Especially the Valentines Bundle.
