Hello September, are you ready for this month? It’s the last month of summer because fall starts on September 22th. It’s weird, because I’m a true summer lover but for some reason I can’t wait for the fall to start right now! I think it’s because the summer was so rainy here in the Netherlands. I’m ready to cosy up for fall. My brain and body are already there. I gave myself a good start with a minimal personal journal setup for September. Check the video here!
This time I chose warmer colors and I did not go heavy on collaging. I love a good collage, but sometimes less is truly more. I created a simple cover page for September with a few stickers. I went in with a coffee cup and croissant sticker. Two things many people in the Netherlands buy when they’re on their way to work in the morning during fall and winter. I personally don’t drink coffee but it looks good in this personal journal setup for September.
I also created a nice goal page for the three goals I want to achieve this month. One of them is losing weight so that one ended up on my list after taking pictures for this article. I also made three journal trackers for workouts, intermittent fasting and not eating sugar. I love trackers and I wanted a very minimal tracker page this month. I think I did quite alright if I compare this tracker page to the uglier and bigger trackers I made before, haha!
Last but not least I added my ‘good stuff’ page. This is a very important page for me as I design My True Life: The life I want to live, not the life society tries to force on me. Keeping track of things that went well every day, even if it’s just a small thing, is very good. It helps you see what already goes the way you’d like it to go in your True Life. That’s why I keep track of the good things every day.
I hope this personal bullet journal spread gives you inspiration to create your own. Make sure to watch the video to see how I created this spread and what stationery supplies I used for this minimal personal journal setup for September. Don’t forget to share your spreads with me on Instagram @mytruelifeNL, I’d love to like your work over there.
Live your True Life and I’ll see you with a new spread in October,
