Life changing magic journal
This gratitude journal from lifestyle guru Marie Kondo provides a space for you to notice and record the things that spark joy in your life each day. By asking yourself "Does this spark joy?" about not only the objects in your home but also the activities and relationships in your life, you can mindfully zero in on your ideal life. Peppered with inspirational quotes from The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, this 365-day, 3-year record is the perfect way to spark joy, one day at a time.
My thoughts: We are all busy and sometimes fail to take the time to smell the roses. With this journal, I think that those who use it have the rare opportunity to just take a couple of minutes a day to jot down the things that spark joy for the day. I love the idea of looking for those bits of magic that are there, even when you have had a crummy day, there is usually something that sparked joy.
The journal is set up to write in over the course of three years, and I love that there are quotes sprinkled through (like "Things that are cherished shine" and "everyone needs a sanctuary")!
While this is a great companion to Marie Kondo's books, I think that it could be used outside of her other books as well.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
