For the past couple of month or so, I have been contemplating buying a journal for the New Year; however, unbeknownst to me, I have been practicing the laws of attraction because I was able to get my hands on a free copy of Life Changing Magic journal by Marie Kondo.
I had no idea who Marie Kondo was until I started researching and reading reviews on her previously published book. Kondo is an expert organizer, and her previous books were based on organizing your home and workspace, and how to apply these principles to your everyday life.
Life Changing Magic journal is about 400 pages long, which covers about two to three years of journaling. Throughout the book are inspirational quotes about life and the theme of the journal which is stated on the back cover: Does it spark joy?
I like the journal, however, I wish the writing lines were longer than four or five because that amount of space is only enough to capture a few sentences. Therefore, what I ended up doing was using the entire page to write about my day.
Life Changing Magic journal is great for people starting their first journal or for those simply wanting to write down quick thoughts of the day which filled their day with joy. Also, because the space to write is limited, the journal would be perfect as a gratitude journal.
