How about something a bit, different today? i currently have about 6 planners in active use. Before you say WTF, or are you nuts allow me to explain. It really is an endearing story that started about a year ago. I had been messing with planners for as long as I can remember. I need to have a calendar in front of me so I have some grip on what is going to happen when. I am a very born organized person who has been wayward over the last um 15 years. When your a clean freak and you are raising 4 kids you learn to let go of your perfection. Not as soon as I would have liked, but you do learn to let go. Now, eh I have books piled everywhere, hobby supplies here and there, and loving mementos all over the place. Oh yeah, 7 planners, let me get back to that.
I got my first happy planner a few years ago, but really only began to understand my HP a year ago. A couple of friends loaded me down with supplies and I bought more and, I have been Happy Planning ever since. But, why 7? Well, they are just what those of us who love stickers, paper crafting, pens, colors, etc. need. I shall explain mine and then you can call me crazy, or just join in the fun.
One- is my command planner, I keep general loose items in it just the basic strokes so I know what is going on where. 2nd is a gratitude planner where I just write a word or a phrase everyday that makes me happy. Third, I have one that I write, a verse, a thought, an inspirational thought. Four, is the keep track of birthdays, I am terrible at this so this is my vain attempt to get better. 5, is my faith planner, where I write nuggets of my faith and what i’ve learned, One is an Erin Condren planner in Wonder Woman that I am trying out. So far I love it. and the last one, is a task driven one I’m trying to keep track of what I do. See it all sounds reasonable right?
Well it does to me and that is all that matters ;P ! I also love stickers, and I love to decorate with them. True those who know me know that I tend Not to use the stickers I buy, and that I tend to collect them, but I am getting a lot better about really using them. I firmly believe that people who can decorate something with colors and objects that make them smile are a lot happier than those who just um don’t?
Oh, I forgot, I also have a digital planner on my GoodNotes, well… I use that one to cortical my days since the Covid-19 really started taking pictures once a day, etc. I find it fun. All these things I am doing are taking time. Time i’m not obsessing about the news, or freaking out about how the world changed. It changed and i’m here, so i’m going to have the best life I can! Are you really kidding me? What else can we do?
