[REVIEW] sparking joy – a journal

I am a huge KonMari fan. I’m generally good at keeping things in order, but I have a terrible fear of becoming a hoarder (re: my mother, to a certain extent), so anything that keeps me in check is a good thing. Plus: the folding. The folding is epic.

So when I saw a copy of the new KonMari journal up for review on Blogging for Books, I knew I wanted one. I imagined it to be a logbook/workbook to complement The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up; however, what I discovered was a three year journal to record moments that spark joy. Not what I expected, but definitely something I will enjoy. I journal on a semi-regular basis, but my journal is more a record of triumphs and tragedies than everyday joys. I’m going to challenge myself to stick to it and jot down a little note everyday, even if it’s not a particularly significant event.

The journal itself is hardbound with a cover that resembles the original KonMari text. It is a perpetual diary style, so the writer can enter the year as time progresses. The pages are nice and thick, and while I haven’t written in it yet, I don’t foresee any bleed-through. Quotes fromΒ The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying UpΒ are scattered throughout to provide inspiration. Overall, a great little gift idea for anyone who is new to journaling or looking to become more mindful.
