The Struggle is Real

planningYeah.

So.

It’s working…my water intake has increased, vitamin consumption is at an all time record for me! Yassss! Small tiny goals to start but good habits are being formed and that is a great start.

My next goal is working on daily routines – which for a chronic is an oxymoron. We don’t have routines…well, unless you count naps.  I keep reminding myself not to call it a routine but more of a daily reminder of what I should be doing.  This past weekend, I spent some one-on-one time with God asking for direction on how to deal with my need to be active and yet, restful & mindful of my current state of health. It was not easy (ok, maybe because I demanded, relented and finally listened). Whatever your faith, if find that once you release it to the Cosmos, the answer is waiting for you.

Planning, scheduling, whatever you call it has never been a struggle for me. I’ve been using planners for years. This year…I’ve been in a fit over it all. This notebook doesn’t work, this Hobonichi doesn’t have space for my needs, my Filofax is so stuffed, the pages won’t turn! Oy with the poodles already! One of the biggest contributors is my own self. Seeing what others are doing with their planning systems just gets me going and I want what they have and so on and so on.

OMG! it has to stop! Now.

The truth is, you can “plan” all you want. Have the prettiest, most expensive Filofax in the world but as the saying goes “life happens when you are busy making other plans”. So I am going to work on being present, I can’t go back and change yesterday. Nor can I control tomorrow. I can only be in the now. No more pre=planning. No more worries about whether my weekly layout photo worthy. I’m done.

With that being said…I’ll have my 2017 set-up review posted the first weekend of December to show you just how I’m going to handle all this stuff…
