Phrase A Day v. 1

The other day, I went to Target. And bought underwear and sticky notes. And somehow ended up paying 50 bucks (ummm, what???).

But the day was not a total failure, because I found this sweet little card-flip-book-thing:

It's actually just a really simple stack of note cards, strung on a clip, from Myndology. But it was cheap enough, and I couldn't not get it, so here we are.

I was debating what to do with it, and tossed around a ton of ideas before deciding to make a phrase-a-day journal! Basically, every night you just sum up your day in one simple phrase/word/sentence. I've done versions in my regular planners/journals before, without a lot of consistency, but I still liked the concept. So, this time around I'm going to try and make it last!

And as sort of a weekly re-cap, I'm going to post all the cards from the past week every Friday. It will be very minimalist, not too deep, but still a fun way to celebrate the start of the weekend!

My journal is super simple: I wrote a little cover page, then I just write the date and my phrase on each card. I'm wondering if this is too minimalist, and if I should start writing a few things I'm grateful for on the back of each card...or something...but I'm not sure. Thoughts?

Also, the possibilities for this type of notepad are endless! Here are some other ideas I had:

+Quote flip book.
+Traditional, epic flip book with sketches (but this one's too thick for that to work well).
+Gratitude list.
+Write down 'successes' to pull out and read when you're feeling down.
+Boredom Book (to remind yourself of all the better things you could be doing).
+Favorites Book. Randomly list out favorites in any category, one prompt per card!

Do you mini-journal? What are your ideas?

Happy Friday! xoxo
