Has Using a Planner Stifled My Journaling Habit?

I’ve been a fairly consistent journal-keeper since high school (oh, those angsty poems!), but over the past few years that habit has fallen to the wayside. My present journal was, if I remember right, started two years ago! It’s a 5-subject notebook, and I’m not even half-way through it. That’s not normal. Last week IContinue reading “Has Using a Planner Stifled My Journaling Habit?”

Admitting That I Want Things

Most of my life has been financially strapped, you know, the ‘paycheck-to-paycheck’ lifestyle. With too many times that were behind by two paychecks or so. It sucks. It’s a scary way to live, the stress ebbs and flows but never quite disappears because how will you pay rent this month is never, ever far fromContinue reading “Admitting That I Want Things”

This Wounded Healer Takes On Building A Healing Business

~Image from my embodiedawareness.wordpress.com~ In my last blog post I mentioned breathing problems, and, as with so many of us who live with chronic conditions, adding a new problem to my admittedly small list is a bit overwhelming. I shake, I have pain, and now I have compromised lungs. Woohoo. Not. Three bouts of bronchitisContinue reading “This Wounded Healer Takes On Building A Healing Business”

Back to the Bullet Journal

Planners, planners, planners. What is up with all of them?? I’ve been through more types than I care to admit, and after a recent attempt at a Planner Pad (which, in and of itself, a FABULOUS planner) and finally admitting that I seriously don’t have that much to plan and so I tend to doContinue reading “Back to the Bullet Journal”

And now…a Fauxdori!

Yep, I recently jumped on that bandwagon, and found a fauxdori at Michael’s near Thanksgiving last year. It’s a pretty blue, and it’s the traditional tall and narrow size. I had a 50% off coupon, and figured this would be a great, inexpensive (for once!!) way to test out a new planner. 🙂 It came withContinue reading “And now…a Fauxdori!”

From Bullet Journal to Filofax

After almost 2 months of using a Bullet Journal, I’ve come to the conclusion that it just wasn’t doing it for me. I love that you can tweak the original concept to make it yours in every way, but even when I streamlined it a bit, it still wasn’t cutting it. More than anything else,Continue reading “From Bullet Journal to Filofax”

Bullet Journal Month 2

Last month, after attempting to use my Malden as a Bullet Journal, I pulled out an old notebook I had and created my first true BuJo. I set it up in the traditional way that Ryder Carroll shows on his website, and went at it. I loved having everything together in one notebook, but asContinue reading “Bullet Journal Month 2”

Plum Paper Planner

It’s finally here!!!! They said it takes weeks, and it did. 6 to be exact. That’s ok, I expected it. 🙂 ~The lovely logo on the box.       ~The colorful month tabs. Each month’s color scheme matches them.   ~I love the simplicity and colors of the pages! ~After using a Filofax forContinue reading “Plum Paper Planner”
