Now let's talk about the essential assets of your journal: the front and back cover.
These two journal parts are always the easiest to access.
You can leverage them and write them some critical stuff.
Before going further, I need to make a revelation here that I do most of my writing in a journal using a pencil, not a pen.
Specifically, I use Pilot Super Grip pencils with replaceable leads and 0.7 thickness.
I first started doing this because I wanted something that had a permanent thickness of lines and style.
It is also convenient to erase what you wrote or correct it.
And using a pencil is especially useful for the front and back cover because you can change some things there during the lifetime of a journal.
But again, it is your journal, so feel free to use whatever pens you like.
Let's start from the back side of a journal.
I usually write some wise quotes or facts I like the most.
Something that makes me think about life differently or motivates me to grow.
For example, here are some of the quotes:
You can intentionally keep a few last pages for the quotes or insights you will collect while keeping your journal.
