Bullet Journal Life

My 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

January 2, 2019

Sharing with you all my 2019 bullet journal setup today! I know a lot of people love these posts more and I am so excited to share with you mine. I used the same journal as last year and tried to minimize the entire setup process to ensure that I would come back to use the created spreads. Hope you enjoy!

Welcome 2019…

I wanted to make the beginning page quote simple as I am not the best with illustrations, but still want to make it look aesthetically pleasing. In the beginning I wanted it to say “hello 2019” but liked the look of “welcome” better. 

2019 at a Glance…

This page is quite simple. All I did was drew out all the months/dates of this year so it will be easier for me to come back and reference a specific date. A lot of months this year are starting on a weekend!!

2019 Goals & Power Word…

This is my favorite spread that I created thus far! I wanted to keep all of my goals in one place to refer back to. I divided them up into different categories such as family, friends, blog, etc. to make it all easier to achieve. You can read more about my 2019 resolutions in yesterday’s blog post!

And the power word I choose for this year is FOCUS. I think it can be applied to so many areas of my life, whether it’s academically or even recreationally. I want to be in the moment and to really put 110% of my attention in everything I am doing. What is your power word for this year?

Monthly Blog Posts Spread…

If you read my 2019 resolutions, you would know the crazy goal of mine is in regards to this blog. I wanted to track those posts in one place so decided to put them all in in the beginning. This way, I can plan ahead and write down my posts ideas and refer back to posts I’ve already written.


I hope you enjoyed looking through my 2019 bullet journal setup. It’s so fun to start a new year spread. To me, it feels like starting over! I am going to try and keep up with my bullet journal more this year and create more creative spreads!

A million and one thanks for reading — until my next lil’ thought then!

    I love the idea of bullet journalling, but I just don’t think that I have the patience!

    Looks like you’ve got 2019 in the bag ;D I love the way you’ve laid out your goals on one spread with the overarching “focus” on top. The layout really highlights bringing that theme into every category of goals you might have. -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
