15 of the Best Inspirational Quotes for Your Bullet Journal

These inspirational quotes for your bullet journal are a great way to get you into a creative and focused mood. Keep these motivational quotes on the first page of a diary or journal to inspire positive thoughts and self-love.

When I was in first grade, I was given a Little Mermaid Diary for my birthday. It came equipped with a tiny lock and key.

Although I was only seven, I was intrigued by these private little pages that were for my eyes only.

I could write about things that happened in school that I was too embarrassed to talk about. I could jot down silly plans for the future (which at that time didn’t go much past the weekend). And the best part was, no one was going to read it.

I didn’t have to worry about spelling, grammar- heck I didn’t even have to write on the lines.

I would look forward to jotting down my thoughts at the end of each day.

This friendship I developed with my journal continued through high school.

When I went away for college, I foolishly took a break from journaling – until recently when my anxiety and pursuit of a more mindful and intentional lifestyle drove me to start bullet journaling.

This is one of my favorite ways to dump out my thoughts so that I can focus on the present and be more mindful.

Basically, it is the perfect way to release everything that is swirling around in your brain by getting it down on baby.

It includes a few specific pieces, but is fully customizable:
